Koscheck got by Mike Pierce at UFC 143 by the skin of his teeth after earning a knockout victory against Matt Hughes late in 2011. “Kos” is a former #1 contender to the UFC title, sporting a career record of 17-5 with fifteen of those wins coming in the UFC.
Meanwhile, Hendricks (12-1) scored the biggest win of his career in his last outing by dropping Jon Fitch in twelve seconds at UFC 141. Fitch is a training partner of Koscheck’s and a good friend, adding a bit of extra intrigue into the pairing. The former decorated wrestler picked up his third straight win with the performance.
UFC on FOX 3 is set to go down place May 5 from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The main event will feature Jim Miller and Nate Diaz with Koscheck-Hendricks likely serving as the co-headliner.
