Josh Koscheck Could Face Newcomer Paulo Thiago At UFC 95
In an attempt to add a little name noterity to UFC 95 in February, the UFC is working on a potential welterweight match up between Josh Koscheck and undefeated Brazilian newcomer Paulo Thiago. MMAMania.com has the scoop:
As MMAmania.com first reported over the weekend, top welterweight contender Josh Koscheck is expected to return to action at UFC 95 card, which is slated for The O2 Arena in London, England, on February 21.
We can now confirm that he is expected to welcome undefeated Brazilian up-and-comer, Paulo Thiago (7-0), to the Octagon for the first time ever. Itís important to note that bout agreements have been distributed but are still unsigned.
What are his judo credentials?? He had some pretty sick throws in that highlight. I dont seee him doing that to Koscheck but still.
He looks like a legit prospect but why throw him to one of the best fighters in the world at 170?? Especially soemone with good striking and great wrestling. It just seems like they are throwing him to the wolves.
This could be a case of the UFC not wanting to give Kos a top fighter, cuz they dont want to give him a title shot.
