Josh Koscheck is set to step back in the cage in the co-main event at UFC 151 against Jake Ellenberger.
The UFC announced the match-up on Wednesday.
Two top-ten ranked welterweights have verbally agreed to meet in the co-main event of UFC 151 as powerhouse wrestlers Jake “The Juggernaut” Ellenberger and Josh Koscheck will battle it out September 1st.
Ellenberger (27-6) was ever so close to a title shot before he was derailed by Martin Kampmann at The Ultimate Fighter Live finale. He will now be even more determined to get a win, so he can climb back into title contention in a stacked welterweight division.
