Josh Koscheck won’t get a title shot in the near future, but at UFC 109, he will get the opportunity to avenge a stinging loss from earlier this year.
The UFC is targeting a welterweight rematch between Josh Koscheck and Paulo Thiago at UFC 109 on Feb. 6. FanHouse learned of the potential fight on Tuesday, but the bout has yet to be made official by the organization.
Paulo Thiago knocked Koscheck silly at UFC 95 with a vicious uppercut that sent him crumbling to the mat. Thiago isn’t the opponent Koscheck wanted, but he shouldn’t have too much trouble getting motivated for him either.
In other UFC booking news, MMA Weekly is reporting that Keith Jardine will face off against TUF 8 winner Ryan Bader at UFC 110.
A light heavyweight bout has been added to the UFC’s first trip to the land down under as former “Ultimate Fighter” winner, Ryan “Darth” Bader, looks to keep his undefeated record in tact as he faces “The Dean of Mean” Keith Jardine.
The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday by multiple sources close to the fight who indicated bout agreements have been issued for the upcoming fight.
I’d expect Jardine to take this one, but what if he doesn’t? He’s coming off two consecutive losses. It’s hard to imagine the UFC letting a staple in their light heavyweight division go, but three losses in a row is three losses in a row. They’ve cut fighters for less.
