Welterweights Tyron Woodley and Josh Koschek will look for a rebound victory when they square off at UFC 167. The two decorated wrestlers will square off on the November 16 fight card. UFC officials announced the bout on Thursday.
Tyron Woodley comes into the bout following a frustrating loss to Jake Shields at UFC 161. The former MIZZOU wrestler will look to notch an important victory when he faces off with the 2001 NCAA Division champion at 174-pounds in Koschek. The Ultimate Fighter veteran suffered a devastating loss against Robbie Lawler at UFC 157 and then was sidelined from his scheduled UFC 163 with Demian Maia due to injury.
UFC 167 will be headlined by a UFC welterweight title fight between champion Georges St-Pierre and Johnny Hendricks. The billing will mark the 20th anniversary of UFC 1, which took place November 12 at the since demolished McNichols Sports Arena in Denver, Colorado. More bouts are expected to be announced for the UFC’s 2o-year anniversary card.
