Welterweights Josh Koscheck, Jake Ellenberger Booked For UFC 151 Co-Main Event

An interesting match has been signed for the co-main event of UFC 151, as welterweights Josh Koscheck and Jake Ellenberger will tangle.

The UFC 151 card takes place September 1 from Las Vegas. The main event for the night boasts Jon Jones defending his UFC light heavyweight title against Dan Henderson.

Both Koscheck (17-6) and Ellenberger (27-6) saw themselves as contenders in the division before defeats set them back.

Koscheck had a two-fight win streak snapped by a decision loss to Johny Hendricks, while Ellenberger was stopped by Martin Kampmann. His loss halted a six-fight win streak.

Both Hendricks and Kampmann are set to meet later this year in a likely No. 1 contender contest.
