Anthony "Rumble" Johnson to fight Koscheck at UFC 106?


Anthony "Rumble" Johnson

UFC welterweight contender Josh Koscheck announced via Twitter earlier tonight that he will be fighting in the co-main event at UFC 106 next month.

He did not name an opponent but I believe it is none other than Anthony "Rumble" Johnson. Johnson just knocked out Yoshiyuki Yoshida last Saturday night at UFC 104. Johnson did not suffer any injuries at all in his quick first-round victory.

What Koscheck and Johnson have in common is that they both brutally knocked out Yoshida, and they both train in the Bay Area.

Some fans are speculating that Koscheck's opponent might be Matt Hughes or Paul Daley. I don't believe it is either of them. Hughes has already stated that he is not interested in fighting Koscheck, and he would not take the fight with only a few weeks notice. Daley would be a good opponent for Koscheck, but just like Hughes', he probably would not be ready on November 21 to fight.

I expect the UFC to announce Johnson as Koscheck's opponent sometime later this week once all the contracts are signed.

The UFC needs some good fights for UFC 106 since the scheduled main event between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin has been postponed until next year due to an illness to Lesnar. Johnson did not endear himself to UFC President Dana White after coming in six pounds overweight in his fight against Yoshida. What better way to get back in White's good graces by fighting again next month against another top contender like Koscheck?

The match makes perfect sense for the UFC, Koscheck, and Johnson. Fans want to see Johnson against a top-level opponent, and Koscheck needs a win against a tough opponent like Johnson so he can earn another title shot against UFC welterweight champion Georges St.Pierre.
