The UFC today made two more bouts official for “UFC 113: Shogun vs. Machida II” in Montreal. The May card features a much-anticipated light heavyweight championship rematch between Lyoto Machida and Shogun Rua. It takes place on May 8 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
Paul Daley (23-8-2) vs. Josh Koscheck (14-4) and Tim Credeur (12-3) vs. Tom Lawlor (6-2) were officially added to the UFC 113 card this morning.
Daley has made two previous appearances in the Octagon, earning victories with vicious knockouts in both. He defeated Martin Kampmann at UFC 103 in September and followed up with a brutal knockout of Dustin Hazelett in December. He’ll face Koscheck, a former NCAA wrestling champion who has fashioned himself into an exciting stand up fighter.
Tim Credeur is a former cast member on “The Ultimate Fighter 7,” where he made it to the semi-finals of the show before being stopped by Jesse Taylor. Lawler, 27, was a cast member on “The Ultimate Fighter 8” and has made a habit of having exciting fights during his UFC tenure. He most recently appeared during a razor-thin (and somewhat controversial) loss to Aaron Simpson.
