Two top contenders in the welterweight division will try to get back on track making their way to the title. Josh Koscheck is set to take on Jake Ellenberger in what will likely be the co-main event of UFC 151. The event will take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, on September 1st, with the event being headlined by a light-heavyweight title fight between the champ Jon Jones and UFC vet Dan Henderson.
Jake Ellenberger and Josh Koscheck both lost their last matches, Ellenberger was on a hot streak in the octagon before taking on Martin Kampmann where he was disposed of by knees in the second round. Koscheck has not looked like the killer he used to be as of late. After an uninspiring decision win over Mike Pierce, Koscheck looked just as lack luster in a loss to Johny Hendricks. A match up between the two will push one back into a top contenders spot, but the other will fall nearly to the back of the line.
