It is being rumored that Demian Maia and Josh Koscheck will square off at UFC 163 on August 3rd.  People have been wondering who the UFC would match Maia up with next since he could be one fight away from a title shot, but seemingly all other top welterweights have been booked.  This fight does not make a whole lot of sense for Maia who is 3-0 since moving down to welterweight with his most recent win being a dominant performance over Koscheck’s former teammate and good friend Jon Fitch.  Koscheck though skill wise is up there with the best in the world has dropped his last two fights and rarely will the UFC match up fighters on opposite streaks like seen here.  Still it should be a good fight and Koscheck definitely has the skills to beat Maia who has looked great since dropping fifteen pounds and fighting at 170.  The UFC has not confirmed this match up yet but many sources close to the Brazilian fighter have said it is happening.  UFC 163 will be headlined by Jose Aldo vs Anthony...
