Josh Koscheck’s next fight is set.

Dana White announced on Twitter earlier tonight that Koscheck will face off against Johny Hendricks at UFC on FOX 3 on May 5.

Koscheck vs Johnny Hendricks is on for FOX!!!

It’s a huge opportunity for Hendricks who’s coming off his 12 second knockout victory over Jon Fitch at UFC 141. A win over Koscheck on FOX would certainly raise his stature in the UFC’s welterweight division. It could even get him in the title discussion if he can blast Kos like he lit up Fitch. Against Koscheck though, that’s always easier said than done. Should be a good one.
