Koscheck Out, Swick In Against Thiago At UFC 109

Mike SwickHere’s another face to take off the UFC 109 poster.

MMA Fighting is reporting that Josh Koscheck has sustained an injury that will take him off the Feb. 6 card. The good news is the UFC has already found Paulo Thiago an opponent, Mike Swick.

Mike Swick has agreed to step in for his injured American Kickboxing Academy teammate Josh Koscheck on short notice and face Paulo Thiago (12-1) at UFC 109 on Feb. 6. learned of the new bout after reporting Koscheck’s decision to pull out of his scheduled fight against Thiago earlier Monday.

With Anderson Silva, Lil Nog and Koscheck all off the card with injuries, that leaves Randy Couture and Mark Coleman as the only original poster-worthy match-up still intact. Kinda funny if the two fighters well into their forties are the ones who actually make to February injury-free.
