Josh Koscheck has been injured and forced out of his UFC 163 welterweight fight against Demian Maia next month in Rio de Janeiro. The fight card will go on with 12 bouts instead of 13.

Good thing injuries are so few and far between these days

On the comeback trail

Another injury. This is crazy.

I wasn't thrilled with the original matchup. I'd like to see Maia fight someone a little closer to a title shot. Maybe winner of the Rory Mac fight.

Oh, this again....SHIT!

Sucks to see Maia isn't fighting. wasn't too impressed with this fight anyway. I'd rather see Maia fight Tarec Saffeidine or MacDonald/Ellenberger winner.

I was looking forward to this match. I was looking forward to Maia making Kos tap or snap.

I guess this injury bug is back around.5 in 2 days.

Lytle said he'd fight someone on short notice
Maia Lytle would be a f'ing war.

Never pick against a Russian, currently 32-11 (74%) in the UFC since 2012. #DoItForWatson

I can't argue that it would be a sweet fight, but it would be a bad idea potentially derailing someone who is coming into his own in a new division with someone who is retired.

What about Mike Pierce? He needs and wants a step up and he was talking about Shields, so why not a better version of Shields?

Pyle, Pierce, Shields, and Saffiedine all make sense to me.

Wow what a shit ppv this became.
I will head to the bar for sure.

They could have had maia vs Lawler at fox 8
Or Lawler face maia at Ufc 163.

Ufc ain't thinking.

Yea that would be an awesome match up. Classic striker vs grappler.Robbie's really looking good these days. And maia is looking real tough at WW. He's definitely on another lvl then kos. I think that fight could go either way! Just be interesting to see if Robbie could keep it standing. On another note I hate Rory MacDonald and hope Jake kos him in the first!

Poor Kos...

Let me break down teh translation kids - -

Firstly, Josh was thinking this going into teh fight:

"This is a big fight for me, a big challenge"
Translation: Oh God, why did Joe Silva match me up with this guy??!!

Secondly, Josh was thinking this out loud, "My skills match up well with this guy"
Translation: This guy is better than me just about everywhere.

****Injuries leading up to a FIGHT are like having sex with a's easier to PULL OUT than face the eventual ass-whooping STD like a man.

Well, he's officially back! The injury bug!

Shawn91111 » Posted 9/21/07 2:56:00AM

from Maia himself on twitter why he isnt fighting a replacement at 163

Demian Maia ?@demianmaia 6h
“No available top WWs, not enough time to get a Brazilian working visa and no other top WWs on the card = no Maia at 163.”
