Koscheck to fill in for Sanchez at UFC 90

Diego Sanchez has been forced to withdraw from a highly anticipated welterweight showdown with Thiago Alves due to an undisclosed injury, thought to be to his spleen, suffered in training, according to sources close to the situation.

The card scheduled for Chicago’s Allstate Arena, however, will not suffer greatly because fellow welterweight standout Josh Koscheck has agreed to step in for his injured fellow alum from the inaugural season of “The Ultimate Fighter.” While the bout agreement is yet to be signed, parties close to Koscheck and Alves have confirmed to Sherdog.com that the fight has been agreed to.

Sanchez (19-2-0), who dropped two consecutive fights in 2007, had resurrected his title hopes with a pair of victories this year and would have surely been considered a top contender had he been able to derail the streak Alves has been riding.

The popular Alves (15-3-0) has ascended to the top of the welterweight contender’s ranks with consecutive victories over former champion Matt Hughes and Karo Parisyan. He is in the midst of a six-fight winning streak with his last loss coming at the hands of Koscheck’s teammate Jon Fitch in June 2006.

Koscheck (11-2-0), a collegiate wrestling champion, will look to extend his two-fight winning streak and regain the momentum he took into his August 2007 bout with now-UFC champion Georges St. Pierre. Koscheck, viewed by many as a eventual contender will have a chance to leapfrog Sanchez in his quest for a title shot as well as redemption against the last man to beat him.

Man if Kos had more training time I would probably pick him but I have to go with Alves still right now but I am not 100% sure.

Koscheck, narrowly, but as you said, it'd be an easy pick had he known a few weeks ago.

Koscheck will repeatedly take Alves down and win a decision. Kos' top game is really good. Bad fight for Alves, as he's facing a much better wrestler, who isn't a complete dipshit standing. But, this isn't going to stay standing anyway.

I don't think it would be an easy pick if Kos had a few more weeks I might even still pick Alves it is a hard fight for me to pick.

I can't choose, but I WISH I could have seen Diego get his ass kicked.

Edit: I can pick, Koscheck by boring decision.

It'd be an easy pick for me at least. Not that Koscheck would beat him badly or easily.
