Josh Koscheck vs Chris Wilson at UFC 98 in May

No rest for the weary.

Josh Koscheck will indeed return to the Octagon sooner rather than later, accepting a bout to take on Chris Wilson in a welterweight tilt scheduled for UFC 98 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 23.

This will mark the fourth fight in six months for the American Kickboxing Academy product.

Koscheck was recently upended when he walked into a Paulo Thiago uppercut at UFC 95: "Sanchez vs. Stevenson" two weeks ago. The referee jumped in to stop the action in the first round after Koscheck hit the canvas, which several onlookers, including Koscheck, felt was a premature stoppage.

He will no doubt look to exact revenge on the super tricky fighter from Team Nogueira.

Wilson is also coming off a loss -- he dropped a split-decision to John Howard at UFC 94: "St. Pierre vs. Penn 2" just last month. It was the lone bright spot on a rather uneventful card, bringing home co "Fight of the Night" honors.

Wilson had a recent four-fight win streak snapped in early 2008 when he stepped up to take on top division contender -- and Koscheck training partner -- Jon Fitch on super short notice in a losing effort (unanimous decision).

He was invited back shortly thereafter and defeated Steve Bruno in a lopsided unanimous decision at UFC 87: "Seek and Destroy." This will mark his fourth fight under the UFC banner.
