Default Rumble v KOS at 106

Welterweights Anthony Johnson and Josh Koscheck are expected to co-headline UFC 106 on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas.

Sherdog.com was the first to report the bout Tuesday night and MMAWeekly.com subsequently confirmed it from sources close to the bout. Koscheck confirmed his participation on the fall card earlier via his official Twitter account.

The event's original headliner, Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin, was Monday moved to Jan. 2 at UFC 108 after illness forced Lesnar to withdraw. Light heavyweights Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin were subsequently bumped up to main event status.

Mark Coleman had been scheduled to take on Ortiz before catching the injury bug.

Johnson (10-2) is days removed from a devastating knockout of Yoshiyuki Yoshida at UFC 104, a victory blemished by a 5 lb. weight overage that cost him 20 percent of his purse and a $65,000 bonus for "Knockout of the Night." Johnson apologized for his misstep after the fight and said he struggled with a knee injury sustained in preparation for a June bout with Matt Brown (the bout was eventually cancelled when both fighters revealed injuries).

Koscheck (17-4) was originally scheduled to take on up-and-comer Mike Pierce on Jan. 11 at UFC Fight Night 20 before the shuffle. In his last Octagon appearance, the original "Ultimate Fighter" alum spoiled the return of former welterweight contender Frank Trigg at UFC 103. He is 11-4 in the UFC.

Good fight first Big test for Rumble. I have him winning by points.

I have to admire Koscheck's competitive spirit. At least one time before this didn't he agree to "fill in" on short notice?
The same thing could be said for Johnson too.

Well this may be quite a fight.

even though i don't really consider myself a kos fan, you can't take away the fact that he'll fight anyone ... i think he knows he is a later starter in mma and needs to get as many fights in as he can before he is too old ... he filled in to fight alves on short notice and did ok ... i have rumble winning this, but i think it will be a great fight ... also, rumble knows his next fight is soon, so i don't think he'll be bulking up to 220 between fights for this .. i see him coming in on weight this time around ... coming in over weight cost him over $60,000 last time around ... he isn't making the kind of money that he can throw that away like that ...

this is a great fight for a last minute replacement. It will be a good test for Rumble. If he can keep the fight standing against Kos, it MAY be a good sign that he might be able to keep a fight standing against GSP.

Rumble rd. 1 KO

I see Rumble winning this. I think he just hits to hard for Kos. There is a chance that if Rumble wins this he gets a title shot IMO.
