A likely matchup between welterweight contenders Josh Koscheck and Paul Daley, first reported after Saturday’s UFC 108, is closer to becoming a reality, as ESPN’s Jon Anik reports that the bout is in the works for May or June.
Daley (23-8-2) made his UFC debut in September with a first-round knockout of Martin Kampmann, and won his fourth-straight at UFC 108 with a first-round KO of Dustin Hazelett.
Koscheck (14-4) bounced back from a February upset loss to Paulo Thiago with back-to-back wins over Frank Trigg in September and Anthony Johnson in November. Kos had been slated to rematch Thiago next month at UFC 109, but was forced to withdraw with an undisclosed injury and replaced by teammate Mike Swick.
Possible events for the bout include UFC 113 on May 1 in Montreal, UFC 114 on May 29 in Las Vegas, and UFC 115 on June 12 in Vancouver.
