A welterweight scrap between Josh Koscheck and Jake Ellenberger has been pulled. It was reported by UFC Tonight that Koscheck has a bulging disc in his back and will not be able to fight on September 1 at UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson.
The bout was expected to serve as the co-main event to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones defending his title against Jake Ellenberger. UFC officials are working to secure a replacement for the bout.
Koscheck’s return is unknown.
