Koscheck first broke the news of the fight on his twitter account,

I got some big fight news for me. I am fighting nov 21 in Vegas. Co main event!!! Haha it’s on baby!!!!

    I give the edge to Koshcheck in wrestling and Conditioning. But he better watch for those bombs

    I agree Jay i think Kos can win this and is the supperior fighter right now. I think anthony could have a better career but i think Kos is the better fighter right now. If kos wears on him against the cage i think he will take it but if hes dumb and just throws bombs like he does with most people he will be put to sleep.

    With a good gameplan Kos can take this one. He's got to take it to the ground because on the feet Johnson will pick him apart.
