Josh Koscheck vs Yoshiyuki Yoshida to headline 'Fight for the Troops' Dec. 10

The fantastic welterweight match up between Josh Koscheck and Yoshiyuki Yoshida, which first passed along right here, will serve as the main event for UFC Fight Night 16: "Fight for the Troops" at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, N.C., on Wednesday, December 10.

USA Today today confirmed the complete line up, as well as talked to "Kos" about his big 170-pound showdown with "Zenko."

Here's a snip:

"I really [don't] know too much about him. I just know he's a pretty good judo player. And he comes to fight. For me, at the level that we're at, I'm just here to fight whoever they put in front of me and try to finish him quick, get the victory and move one step closer to becoming the UFC world champion."

Remember that the special three-hour special presentation is a free event just for the troops -- tickets are not available for purchase for the general public.

The special event, however, is designed to raise funds for the construction of The National Intrepid Center of Excellence, a treatment center for Armed Forces personnel who have experienced traumatic brain injuries.

Therefore, donations are accepted and encouraged.
