Welterweight Josh Koscheck has announced via Twitter that he’ll be co-headlining UFC 106 on November 21 in Las Vegas:
I got some big fight news for me. I am fighting nov 21 in Vegas. Co main event!!! Haha it’s on baby!!!!
An opponent has not yet been announced for the bout, a late-addition to bolster the card currently headlined by Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin after losing Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin, its original main event, on Monday.
One potential opponent, Matt Hughes, turned down the short-notice matchup, according to Inside Fight’s Jeremy Botter.
The speculated front-runner is now Anthony Johnson, who is coming off a 41-second knockout of Yoshiyuki Yoshida at Saturday’s UFC 104 event and could be ready to fight Koscheck next month.
Koscheck (13-4) bounced back from an upset loss to newcomer Paulo Thiago with a first-round knockout of Frank Trigg in September.
