UFC 103 Comes to Dallas, Texas in September - Josh Koscheck vs. Frank Trigg Confirmed

Promoted from the FanPosts by Kid Nate.

Recent rumors surrounding UFC 103 in September have placed the event first in Memphis, Tennessee, and then in the UK, but MMA Junkie is now reporting that the event will take place in Dallas, Texas on September 19th:

While initial reports suggested the bout would take place on Sept. 26, and possibly in the U.K., the event will now be held on Sept. 19, just three days after UFC Fight Night 19 takes place in Oklahoma City.

While UFC 103 is expected to take place at the American Airlines Center, an official venue for the event has not been named.

A report from MMA Frenzy mentions that MMAJunkie's confirmation came from a source within the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.  The UFC's last trip to Texas was also its first when UFC 69: Shootout was held at the Toyota Center in Houston, with a main event that saw Matt Serra upset Georges St. Pierre for the welterweight title.

The article also goes on to reveal that a previously rumored welterweight fight between Josh Koscheck and the returning Frank Trigg is now close to finalization with both participants having recently received their fight contracts:

Rumors of the bout have been widespread in recent days, and sources close to the event have indicated to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that bout agreements have been distributed and are expected to be finalized shortly.

 

The UFC crew will have a quick turn-around after UFC Fight Night 19 which takes place just three days prior on 9/16, but the Octagon won't have far to travel when it makes the 200-mile trip south from Oklahoma City to Dallas.

Current event info for UFC 103 is as follows:
