It’s not official, but as you can see above, Mike Pierce claims that he’s going to be Josh Koscheck’s replacement opponent at UFC 143 now that Carlos Condit is facing Nick Diaz in an interim title fight. If Koscheck did in fact try to “wiggle” out of the fight like Pierce claims, it’s not difficult to see why. Pierce is not the kind of opponent that is going to thrust Koscheck back into the title picture.

Thoughts?
