The UFC has officially confirmed a previously rumored bout between welterweights Brock Larson and Chris Wilson at UFC 98 in May.  Larson is replacing Josh Koscheck who suffered a foot injury earlier this month in training.  Although the Koscheck-Wilson bout was originally scheduled to appear on the event's televised main card, with Larson in as a replacement, the fight is now being bumped down to the preliminary card.
