Report: Carlos Condit vs. Josh Koscheck Likely for February Card

via www.5thround.com

It appears that Carlos Condit will indeed be facing the toughest challenge available in his quest to re-earn a shot at the UFC welterweight title. At yesterday's UFC 138 press conference, UFC president Dana White talked about the possibility of Condit fighting Josh Koscheck. And MMA Weekly confirmed that the bout is set to go for the Super Bowl weekend card in February:

"Right now, Carlos wants to fight. He wants to fight on the same card as GSP and Diaz, so we’ll see what happens. Koscheck has been offered (the fight)," White said.

Sources close to at least one of the fight camps also confirmed that the bout has been verbally agreed to when speaking to MMAWeekly.com on Saturday.

There has been plenty of speculation about who Condit would fight on the card over recent days, and Koscheck's twitter trash talk in the direction of Condit and his agent Malki Kawa appears to have worked in his favor. Koscheck is unlikely to get another shot at Georges St. Pierre if he wins and St. Pierre successfully defends his title against Nick Diaz on the same card (expected to be called UFC 143), but the fact that Condit is taking the most difficult fight available to him is something he should be commended for.
