    Default Koscheck vs Johnson UFC 106

    With the loss of its UFC 106 main event between UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and challenger Shane Carwin earlier this week, the UFC has bolstered the Nov. 21 card with a welterweight bout between contenders Josh Koscheck (13-4 MMA, 11-4 UFC) and Anthony Johnson (8-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC).

    Koscheck posted on Twitter late Tuesday that he would appear on the card, and a source close to the event told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) overnight that Johnson will serve as his opponent.

    The UFC, though, has yet to officially announced the fight, which serves as the night's co-main event.

    UFC 106 takes place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and airs on pay-per-view. Following the loss of Lesnar vs. Carwin (due to a month-long illness suffered by Lesnar), the UFC promoted the co-headliner of Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin to the night's headliner.

    Koscheck had been slated to return to at UFC Fight Night 20 with young prospect Mike Pierce. As MMAjunkie.com first reported last week, verbal agreements were in place for the fight. (Pierce is expected to remain on the card but with a new opponent.)

    Instead, Koscheck (and Johnson) take the UFC 106 fight on less than a month's notice.

    Koscheck looks to re-establish himself among the welterweight division's top contenders after a recent 2-2 stretch in his past four fights. In his most recent contest, Koscheck earned a quick TKO win over Frank Trigg at UFC 103 in September. He also suffered losses to Paulo Thiago (TKO) and Thiago Alves (unanimous decision) during that stretch.

    Johnson, meanwhile, is coming off a successful but somewhat disappointing TKO win over Yoshiyuki Yoshida at this past weekend's UFC 104 event. Johnson would have won a $60,000 Knockout of the Night bonus for the 41-second knockout win, but he was declared ineligible because he failed to make weight for the show (and weighed 176 pounds), which he partially blamed on a knee injury that affected his weight cutting. The former collegiate wrestler and exciting stand-up fighter is now 4-1 in his past five fights; the lone loss was a controversial TKO defeat to Kevin Burns caused by an illegal eye poke that the referee didn't see.
    "He had no teeth, and he was slobbering all over himself. I'm thinking, 'You can have your money back, just get me out of here. Let me go be an accountant." I can't tell you how badly I wanted out of there." Denver rookie QB John Elway, on Jack Lambert, after Lambert and the Steelers knocked Elway out of his first game as a pro (1983).

    Kos trains out of AKA just right down the street not but 2 miles from where I live. ****, I don't know if this is such a good match up for him and in such a short amount of time. You need 3-4 months to train for a guy like Rumble. Rumble Johnson is so good. Tough fight. I hate to see fight go down really. I like Rumble and I like Kos because he trains at AKa with crazy Bob.

    Yep, Kos is arrogant. So is Evans. That's why I usually don't like TUF fighters. For some reason they just seem to be more arrogant than the average fighter really is.... I think it's because they are prompted to be arrogant and say controversial things because they are being filmed. I think they are encouraged to act a fool on tv to make it interesting. That doesn't mean it's totally scripted, it just means that the fighters that are arrogant types to begin with, just get amplified.
