It's official, according to UFC welterweight Josh Koscheck anyway, that he and Diego Sanchez will indeed lock horns at UFC 69 on April 7 in Houston, Texas.
Here's a snip from his MySpace bulletin:
Just to clear a bunch of reports: YES, it's on UFC 69 Houston; TX there will be a KOSCHECK vs. Diego Sanchez. I hope you kids on the forums have some fun talking about KOSCHECK vs. Sanchez because yes it's on UFC 69 and yes, you'll tune in because you either really hate me or love me with nothing in between!
We wrote about this potential match up on numerous occasions — to check out some of the posts click here.
Since losing to Sanchez during season one of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), Koscheck has frequently called out "Nightmare," requesting a rematch as soon as possible.
He appears to foster a great deal of animosity toward Sanchez, which will no doubt play itself out in the run up to the bout.
I can't wait to see Koscheck in action against one of the top 170 pounders in the sport. This fight, especially if Koscheck wins, will have major implications on the UFC welterweight picture.
Buckle up, maniacs, it's shaping up to be a wild ride in the Lone Star State.
