Josh Koscheck-Demian Maia In Works For UFC 163

It appears as if those initial Brazilian reports about Josh Koscheck and Demian Maia being added to UFC 163 are true, as is also now confirming the bout.

While it makes little sense in terms of the direction both fighters are going, the welterweights appear on a collision course for August 3 and Brazil. No location has been announced for the event.

Koscheck (17-7) is a former No. 1 contender in the 170-pound division, but has lost two straight, including a devastating defeat at the hands of Robbie Lawler earlier this year.

Maia, though, has won three straight to improve to 18-4 since moving down from middleweight. He is also a former title contender, having been defeated by Anderson Silva.
