A consequential welterweight fight has been added to UFC 167 in Las Vegas.

Josh Koscheck will meet Tyron Woodley at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Nov. 16. The UFC announced the fight on Thursday.

The veteran Koscheck (19-7) is looking to shake off what has been a tough 2013. Koscheck was suffered a first-round knockout at the hands of Robbie Lawler at UFC 157 on Feb. 23, then had to pull out of a planned UFC 163 bout with Demian Maia due to a training injury.

Koscheck last saw the win column at UFC 143, where he scored a split decision against Mike Pierce.

Woodley (11-2), meanwhile, is looking to shake off a loss as well.

The American Top Team Fighter has dropped two of his past three fights, losing a 2012 bout against Nate Marquardt for the vacant Strikeforce title, then a split decision against Jake Shields at UFC 161. In between was a sizzling knockout of Jay Hieron in his UFC debut at UFC 156.
