Josh Koscheck, a former standout All-American wrestler and popular contestant on the first season of “The Ultimate Fighter” has reportedly reached an agreement on a new deal with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

The news comes from Five Ounces of Pain, which has learned of the possible signing through sources close to the negotiations.

Koscheck recently completed the last remaining fight on his latest contract at UFC 82: Pride of a Champion earlier this month, defeating fellow welterweight Dustin Hazelett. It was Koscheck’s first win since losing to current interim welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre over the summer. St. Pierre earned a unanimous decision over Koscheck.

Since losing in the semi-finals of the popular reality show, Koscheck has gone on to win eight out of his ten bouts in the UFC. His highest profile victory came against Diego Sanchez last April.

The American Kickboxing Academy product is now rumored to be taking on veteran Chris Lytle at UFC 86 in July. The source apparently went on to say that a fight between the two has not yet been finalized.
