Costa Philippou Wants UFC Return ASAP

Costa Philippou was busy the past two years, taking seven fights in that span. With 2013 already halfway complete, Philippou is waiting on word from the UFC about his Octagon return.

“I’m expecting a call,” said Philippou on The MMA Hour. “They’ve got to figure out who I’m supposed to fight. Just give me somebody at this point. I don’t really give a s— if it’s a big name, small name, whatever.”

The middleweight was hoping for a spot on UFC on FS1 1 or UFC 165. He isn’t listed on those cards, which are pretty full. A cut on Philippou’s left eye bounced him from taking on Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in May.

Philippou is 12-2 and won his last five since the summer of 2011.
