A welterweight bout between Josh Koscheck and Yoshiyuki Yoshida will serve as the main event for "UFC Fight For The Troops" on Dec. 10 at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

TUF 1's Koscheck (11-2) will look to go 3-0 for 2008. He scored via TKO over Dustin Hazelett at UFC 82 and won via unanimous decision over Chris Lytle at UFC 86.

2007 Cage Force tournament champ Yoshida (10-2) has won his last night fights, including a successful UFC debut at UFC 84: Ill Will in May against War Machine. The judoka was scheduled to face another judo specialist Karo Parisyan at UFC 88, but Parisyan had to pull out last-minute due to a back injury.

The UFC also announced Mike Swick vs. Jonathan Goulet and Frankie Edgar vs. Matt Wiman.

"UFC Fight For The Troops" is a special event presented by the UFC and Spike TV to raise money to build a hospital for military veterans with traumatic brain injuries.

The show will air live on Spike TV at 9:00pm ET.
