TUF Original, Josh Koscheck Signs With Bellator MMA

Longtime UFC welterweight Josh Koscheck has officially signed with Bellator MMA. It was announced in a live broadcast of Bellator 139 on Friday night.

Koscheck competed on the UFC reality series “The Ultimate Fighter” in 2005 and has had all but two of his professional fights in the UFC. His UFC contract just finished up in March, losing to Erick Silva via first-round submission in Rio de Janeiro.

No date was given for Koscheck’s Bellator debut, though he has a clear opponent in Paul Daley, they fought at UFC 113 in May 2010. Koscheck outwrestled Daley for much of the fight to win by unanimous decision. After the final bell, Daley threw a sucker punch that prompted UFC president Dana White to immediately cut him from the organization.
