Dana White Says Josh Koscheck Can Fight Jon Fitch at UFC 139 in San Jose

UFC President, Dana White gives Josh Koscheck the option to compete at UFC 139 in San Jose, California on November 19th, 2011. The only catch is that he will have to go head-to-head with his American Kickboxing Academy team mate, Jon Fitch.

White, speaking at the UFC 139 press conference, said:

“Koscheck? I don’t know fans were asking me that earlier. We will see if he wants to fight Fitch, then they can both fight in San Jose. Koscheck told me he wants to fight in San Jose. I haven’t heard from Fitch though.”

Koscheck is coming off an impressive first round TKO win over former long-time welterweight champion, Matt Hughes at UFC 135 this past weekend in Denver, Colorado. Fitch was last seen in action in February when he fought to a draw against BJ Penn and has since been shelved due to injury.
