Brock Larson replaces Josh Koscheck at UFC 98

Former WEC title contender Brock Larson (25-2) will face Chris Wilson (14-5) at UFC 98 "Evans vs Machida" on May 23 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Larson fills the spot left by Josh Koscheck, who was scheduled to take on Wilson before bowing out due to a foot injury.

Wilson, now with Team Nogueira in Brazil, is 1-2 inside the Octagon. His last fight was a loss to John Howard that was one of two Fight of the Nights at UFC 94 in January.

Larson returned to the UFC at UFC Fight Night on April 1 after being transferred from the WEC and tapped out Jesse Sanders with a rear-naked choke in the first round. The Minnesota Martial Arts Academy member is on a four-fight win streak.
