Koscheck vs. Ellenberger Booked For UFC 151 | UFC NEWS


Two top 10 welterweights have agreed to square off in September at UFC 151.

Both Josh Koscheck and Jake Ellenberger will compete in Las Vegas in what is scheduled to be the night’s co-main event.

UFC officials announced the bout last night.

UFC 151 is set to go down on September 1 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones will attempt to take out another legend in the sport when he faces off with number on contender Dan Henderson.

Koscheck last saw action in a close split-decision loss to Johny Hendricks during the UFC on FOX 3 main card broadcast this past May. The loss snapped his two-fight win streak and halted all talks of being a contender to the title.

Ellenberger last saw action headlining the TUF 15 fight night card where he lost to Martin Kampmann in the second round due to Kampmann’s brutally landed knees. The loss snapped Ellenberger’s six-fight win streak and is only his second on record since being picked up by the UFC.
