UFC officials have recently confirmed a bantamweight addition to February’s UFC 143 fight card in the form of Scotty Jorgensen vs. Renan Barao.
UFC officials took to twitter yesterday evening to announce that Koscheck will stay on the UFC 143 card and face the always tough, Mike Pierce in the place of Carlos Condit.
Jorgensen last saw UFC action in a dominant victory over Jeff Curran at UFC 137. The victory marked his second straight since losing a bid at the bantamweight title at WEC 53.
Barao also looks to make his third UFC appearance on the heels of two successful outings. The Brazilian based bantamweight last saw action at UFC 138 where he choked out Brad Pickett in front of the Britain’s hometown crowd.featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news
