Josh Koscheck (17-5) vs. Johny Hendricks (12-1)
An intriguing welterweight booking features two fighters with similar skillsets as the former title challenger Koscheck looks to return to the championship mix against the fast-rising phenomenon Hendricks.
Koscheck, 34, a UFC staple since emerging as a finalist on the first season of "The Ultimate Fighter" in 2005, recently underwent drastic changes in his camp.
Following a closely contested split-decision win over Mike Pierce this past February, Koscheck parted ways with his longtime team at the American Kickboxing Academy, establishing his new training grounds at Dethrone Base Camp in Fresno, Calif.
A former NCAA Division I standout, Koscheck has earned victories over the likes of Matt Hughes, Paul Daley, Anthony Johnson, Chris Lytle and Diego Sanchez, while dropping two fights to welterweight juggernaut Georges St. Pierre, a decision against Thiago Alves in 2008 and a flash knockout at the hands of Paulo Thiago in 2009.
