UFC Fight Night 16: 'Fight for the Troops' bouts confirmed for Dec. 10

Spike TV today confirmed the complete line up for UFC Fight Night 16: "Fight for the Troops," which is scheduled to take place at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, N.C., on Wednesday, December 10.

As expected, Josh Koscheck will headline the three-hour Spike TV special against Yoshiyuki Yoshida. There was some concern that "Kos" would be unable to battle "Zenko" after losing a tough unanimous decision to Thiago Alves at UFC 90: "Silva vs. Cote" on October 25.

Fortunately, the American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) product is apparently good to go … and very game.
