It was already reported earlier this week that Josh Koscheck would be making another quick turnaround, and returning to action in May at UFC 98. This was in spite of the fact that a rumored bout with Karo Parisyan had fallen through due to Parisyan’s drug related suspension. Though the agreements have not yet been signed, it has been reported by MMAMania that his opponent has been lined up, in the form of Chris Wilson.
Koscheck is coming off of a disputed early knockout loss to UFC Paulo Thiago last week in London. The May fight will be his fourth fight in only six months, and sixth in just over a year. His opponent, Wilson, is also coming off of a loss. Wilson lost via unanimous decision against John Howard at UFC 94 in January, in a bout that earned “Fight of the Night” honors on decision filled card.
UFC 98 is slated to be headlined by a heavyweight title unification bout between Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir, and also feature the long awaited grudge match between Matt Serra and Matt Hughes. For more information and rumors about UFC 98, visit our UFC 98 Rumors page.
