You can add another welterweight battle to UFC 167 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The UFC confirmed Lance Pugmire's report that former title challenger Josh Koscheck will fight Tyron Woodley on November 16th at the MGM Grand.
Koscheck (17-7) is on a losing streak for the first time in his career. After a close split decision went against him vs. Johny Hendricks, Koscheck was TKO'd by Robbie Lawler at UFC 157. He was scheduled to fight Demian Maia at UFC 163, but an injury forced him off the card and now he has a different opponent lined up for him.
Woodley (11-2) made a big splash in his UFC debut when he KO'd Jay Hieron in 36 seconds. However, the thrill of the quick KO was met with the 15 minutes of tedium that ensued when he fought Jake Shields at uFC 161. Not only was the fight anything but exciting, but he lost a split decision to give him his 2nd loss in 3 fights.
UFC 167 is headlined by Georges St. Pierre's welterweight title defense against Johny Hendricks, and also includes Rory MacDonald against the aforementioned Lawler.
