Koscheck out , Larson in at UFC 98


With Josh Koscheck's exit from UFC 98 with a foot injury, it appears that Minnesota Martial Arts Academy welterweight Brock Larson will step in to replace him and face Team Nogueira fighter Chris Wilson.

Wilson, who now trains full time with Team Nogueira in Brazil, comes into the fight off of a split-decision loss to John Howard at UFC 94 in January.

Currently sporting a 1-2 record in the UFC, Wilson is looking to make an impressive next appearance when he returns in May, but he faces a tough test in Larson.

After the WEC decided to dissolve their welterweight division and move fighters to the UFC, Larson was a prized pick-up, as he was previously the No. 1 contender for the 170-pound title in that organization.

With his only losses in his career coming by the way of Jon Fitch and CarlosCondit, Larson has faced top competition his entire career. He won his return bout to the UFC by choking out Jesse Sanders just a week ago at UFC Fight Night 18 in Nashville, Tenn.
