Koscheck was fighting just six and a half weeks after his hard-fought loss to Thiago Alves at UFC 90. That night he struggled in the stand-up game, but tonight he was outstanding on his feet, brutalizing Yoshida with his hands to win an easy first-round knockout. It was a very good showing for Koscheck, one of the Top 5 welterweights in the world.
The Fight for the Troops was a special event put on by the UFC to benefit the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, which supports the thousands of Americans who have suffered traumatic brain injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan. Throughout the event, fighters and celebrities appeared to solicit donations for the cause.
