Josh Koscheck releases the news via his twitter account:

I got some big fight news for me. I am fighting nov 21 in Vegas. Co main event!!! Haha it's on baby!!!!

Koscheck was originally scheduled to fight in a pretty worthless fight(for him anyways) at UFN 20 in January.  However, it appears that he'll have a new opponent for UFC 106.  Could it be Anthony Johnson?

[Note by Kelvin Hunt, 10/28/09 8:12 AM EDT ]Yessir.  According to Sherdog, Josh Koscheck will take on Anthony Johnson in the co-main event at UFC 106.  Koscheck is coming off a first round destruction of Frank Trigg, and Johnson is coming off a first round destruction of Yoshiyuki Yoshida.  Ironcially, Koscheck beat Yoshida in much the same fashion.  Props to both guys for accepting this fight on short notice and boosting the event just a bit.
