A welterweight bout between Josh Koscheck and Johny Hendricks has been booked for an upcoming UFC on FOX event.
UFC president Dana White announced the news just moments ago.
UFC on FOX 3 is set to take place in New Jersey from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford on May 5. In the main event lightweights Nate Diaz and Jim Miller will throw down in a five-round non-title fight.
Hendricks last saw action against Koscheck’s former teammate John Fitch. He was able to upset the longtime number two ranked welterweight with a flash knock out in the very first minute of the first round of action.
Koscheck took to UFC 143 in a hard fought decision win against Mike Pierce in his more recent outing. The win was his second straight since losing a bid for the UFC’s title against GSP.
