The athletes for Wednesday night's UFC Fight for the Troops weighed in on Tuesday and the fight card is now official. The event takes place at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, N.C. and airs live on Spike TV at 6 p.m. PT / 9 p.m. ET.

The main event features Top 10 welterweight Josh Koscheck squaring off with Yoshiyuki Yoshida. Koscheck is looking to put a loss to Thiago Alves at UFC 90 behind him, while Yoshida makes his first start in the Octagon since defeating Jon "War Machine" Koppenhaver at UFC 84.

Mike Swick will be looking to clearly establish himself in the UFC welterweight division as he faces tough Canadian Jonathan Goulet.

Brodie Farber and Luigi Fioravanti, originally slated for a welterweight contest, agreed to fight at a catch weight of 173 pounds.

Main Event
Josh Koscheck (171) vs. Yoshiyuki Yoshida (171)

Jonathan Goulet (171) vs. Mike Swick (171)
Razak Al-Hassan (205) vs. Steve Cantwell (206)
Matt Wiman (156) vs. Jim Miller (156)

Brodie Farber (174) vs. Luigi Fioravanti (173.5)
Johnny Rees (169) vs. Steve Bruno (171)
Brandon Wolff (170) vs. Ben Saunders (170)
Nate Loughran (185) vs. Tim Credeur (186)
Dale Hartt (156) vs. Corey Hill (155)
Justin McCully (228) vs. Eddie Sanchez (246)
I'm excited for this card. Sanchez has a lot of size on Mccully I'm even moer confident in my pick.

eddie sanchez is actually a pretty solid HW....he gets a lot of heat on forums ..probably b/c of his stupid nickname, him being a pretty ugly dude, the whole "yeah boy" thing....but he can throwdown....alot of people don't realize that alot of his fights were taken on short notice...

Anyone else excited to see Luigi Fioravanti? He did pretty well against Diego and has some decent stand up.

Eddie Sanchez is pretty underrated. Good hands, incredible chin, very, very incredible chin. Hardonk/Sanchez is a great UFC FotY candidate. Yeeah boy.

WTF is up with Fioravanti and Farber not making weight?

You're just a cook...

Gotta respect Sanchez for taking a fight with a very feared (at the time) CroCop. But size or not I think he will beat McCully. I think Corey Hill could beat McCully.

I am hoping Yoshida does well though!

Yea Sanchez gets ripped for being a can because of the Cro Cop fight but the guy is legit.

The Sanchez-McCully fight really should be on the main card.

Did they both fail to make weight, and then agree on making a catch weight fight? Or did they agree to a catch weight fight prior to the weigh-ins? This confuses me...I know that Hughes and Alves agreed to a catch weight fight, but Hughes weighed in at 170 lbs and Alves failed to make weight. But this time both fighters are above the limit.
