Koscheck replaces Sanchez at UFC 90

Diego Sanchez has pulled out of his number one contender bout at UFC 90 on October 25 against Thiago Alves due to a torn rib cartilage.

Josh Koscheck, who was supposed to fight Yoshiyuki Yoshida in the main event of "UFC Fight For The Troops" on Dec. 10, has agreed to step in on less than two weeks notice.

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