Carlos Condit, Josh Koscheck Official for UFC 143 in February

UFC 135 Jones v Rampage Fight Card Heavy MMA-101Koscheck tweets bout agreement for Condit fight

A welterweight contender bout between Josh Koscheck and Carlos Condit is now official for UFC 143.

The event takes place Super Bowl weekend, February 4 in Las Vegas. It’s headlined by a highly anticipated welterweight title fight between Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz.

Koscheck tweeted the news on Sunday night with a photo of his bout agreement.

Condit’s road to the UFC title has been full of twists and turns. Originally scheduled to face B.J. Penn at UFC 137, Condit was instead slotted to face St-Pierre after Diaz missed multiple press engagements. St-Pierre was injured and the fight was canceled to be rescheduled at a later date, but a passionate post-fight interview by Diaz angered St-Pierre so greatly that he asked Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta to face Diaz instead of Condit.

Koscheck made his return to the cage after 9 months on the shelf in beating Matt Hughes via first-round TKO in September.
