Josh Koscheck-Johny Hendricks added to UFC on FOX 3

The UFC has set up a key welterweight contest with Josh Koscheck taking on Johny Hendricks at UFC on FOX 3.

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.
