Josh Koscheck Out of UFC 151 Fight with Jake Ellenberger



The injury bug strikes again and this time it costs UFC 151 its co-main event.

Josh Koscheck has been forced out of his scheduled bout against Jake Ellenberger on the Sept 1 card due to a bulging disc in his back.

The fight between Koscheck and Ellenberger was scheduled as the co-main event on the card headlined by UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson.

Unfortunately now UFC officials are left to find a replacement to try to step in and face Ellenberger on just three weeks notice for the upcoming card in Las Vegas.

The timeline for Koscheck’s return to action has not been determined at this time.

The injury was reported on Fuel TV via UFC Tonight on Tuesday evening.
