Just days after an injury suffered in training forced Josh Koscheck (12-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) out of a UFC 98 bout with Chris Wilson (14-5 MMA, 1-2 UFC), the organization has apparently secured a replacement.

MMAjunkie.com has learned from sources close to the bout that recent WEC import Brock Larson (25-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) has agreed to fill in for Koscheck at the event. Wilson has also made a verbal commitment to the matchup, though bout agreements have yet to be finalized.

UFC 98 is scheduled for May 23 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

this is a good fill in for both, brock either gets another win quickly showing he belongs, or chris wilson gets a good win and helps his stock... i got brock in this one though, good job to take this fight brock.

his name is brock, of course he's gonna win

seriously though, larson is a bad dude. wilson is a solid fighter, but larson is on another level and therefore should win.
