Top contenders bout signed for UFC 143 on Super Bowl weekend



On Tuesday, the UFC announced Erik Koch vs. Dustin Poirier for the February 4th UFC 143 event. Both men are top contenders in the bantamweight division with both the 23-year-old Koch (13-1) and the 22-year-old Poirier (11-1) riding four-fight win streaks. One would expect the winner will be next in line for a shot at current 135-pound champion Dominick Cruz.

The event is expected to be headlined by UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre vs. Nick Diaz and with Carlos Condit vs. Josh Koscheck in the co-main event.
