UFC 167: Tyron Woodley Trying To Build A Legacy Like Josh Koscheck

Josh Koscheck has been in the UFC since 2005 with 22 fights under their name. He was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter and twice unsuccessfully challenged for the welterweight title. Tyron Woodley said Koscheck has already established a legacy from his years inside the Octagon and the former Strikeforce fighter is trying to do the same.

“He’s made a ton of money in this sport; he’s done what he needed to do,” said Woodley on MMA Junkie Radio. “He’s been on the first Ultimate Fighter. He could walk away from the sport right now and still have a legacy. Me, I’m still trying to make my mark. I haven’t done enough.”

Though Koscheck has had a memorable UFC run, it could be in danger. For the first time in his career, Koscheck holds a pair of consecutive defeats. They came from Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler.

Woodley was 8-1 for Strikeforce, losing a title fight. He’s 1-1 for the UFC and comes off a lackluster performance loss to Jake Shields.

They’re on the main card of Saturday’s UFC 167. It’s November 16 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. For play-by-play of the card, stay with FightLine.
