Josh Koscheck To Face Johny Hendricks At UFC On FOX 3
By FCF Staff
Welterweights (170 pounds) stars Josh Koscheck (17-5) and Johny Hendricks (12-1) will face off in a featured bout at UFC on FOX 3 at IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J. on May 5.
UFC President Dana White confirmed the matchup today via Twitter.
Koscheck is coming off a split decision victory over Mike Pierce at UFC 143 on Feb. 4. Shortly after the fight, Koscheck revealed that he was parting ways with his longtime training camp, AKA in San Jose, Calif. due to differences with the camp’s head coach and founder, Javier Mendez.
Hendricks’ start will be his first since he scored a 12-second KO of Koscheck’s teammate Jon Fitch at UFC 141 on Dec. 30. Hendricks will look to extend his three-fight win streak in the matchup with Koscheck.
