A pair of NCAA champion wrestlers will face off at UFC on Fox 3 when Josh Koscheck meets Johny Hendricks on May 5 in New Jersey.
UFC President Dana White announced the bout on Sunday via Twitter.
Josh Koscheck will meet Hendricks with possibly a little bit of revenge in mind also. Hendricks’ last competed in Dec 2011 when he knocked out Koscheck’s good friend and teammate Jon Fitch at UFC 141.
The win marked Hendricks’ third win in a row and one more could mean a title shot for the former Oklahoma State Cowboy.
Looking for a third win in a row of his own will be Josh Koscheck who slipped by Mike Pierce in his last fight at UFC 143.
Immediately after the fight and then speaking with MMAWeekly.com, Koscheck revealed that he exited his former team at American Kickboxing Academy and would resume his training at his own facility in Fresno instead.
The bout between Koscheck and Hendricks is the third confirmed televised fight for the UFC on Fox 3 card, with one more fight still to be announced for the four fight show airing on May 5 from the IZOD Center in New Jersey.
