UFC: Fights For Troops

This Wednesday, Spike TV will host UFC: Fights for the Troops from Fayetteville, N.C. in conjunction with Fort Bragg. They will be raising money and promoting the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

Koscheck v. Yoshida is the headlining bout. Koscheck is fresh off a loss to Thiago Alves at UFC 90. Yoshida was supposed to face Karo Parisyan a couple months ago, but Karo was injured. Yoshida's last fight was an awesome 56 second anaconda choke that put War Machine unconscious.

The card also features a bout between Johnathan Goulet v. Mike Swick. Swick is coming off surgery to clear bone fragments from his elbow. Swick last defeated Marcus Davis via unanimous decision. Goulet has won two straight in the UFC over Kuniyoshi Hironoka and Paul Georgieff.

*All fighters made weight except Brodie Farber and Luigi Fioravanti. Farber and Fioravanti are meeting at a catchweight of 174 pounds.
