Perennial welterweight contender Josh Koscheck (17-6 MMA, 15-6 UFC) has been forced out of UFC 151.

His intended opponent, Jake Ellenberger (27-6 MMA, 6-2 UFC) now awaits a new foe.

The change was announced on Tuesday’s new edition of FUEL TV’s “UFC Tonight.” According to the report, Koscheck suffered a bulging disc in his back and had to pull out of the matchup. A timetable for his return was not established.

UFC 151 takes place Sept. 1 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The event’s main card airs live on pay-per-view while FX and Facebook host preliminary-card fights. The main event is a light heavyweight title fight between champion Jon Jones and top contender Dan Henderson.

Koscheck is coming off a close split-decision loss to Johny Hendricks at UFC on FOX 3 this past May. That loss snapped a two-fight win streak for the polarizing cast member of the inaugural edition of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

“Kos” had put together back-to-back wins over Matt Hughes – a knockout with one second left in the first round at UFC 135 – and Mike Pierce, whom he beat by split decision in February. In December 2010, he lost a five-round unanimous decision to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 124 after coaching opposite the champ on “TUF 12.”

The fight against Ellenberger was expected to be Koscheck’s 22nd in the UFC, which would have ranked him among the promotion’s all-time leaders for number of fights in the company.

Ellenberger in June suffered his first loss since a split-decision defeat to Carlos Condit in his UFC debut in September 2009. After that setback, Ellenberger went on a six-fight win streak with four knockouts. The highlights of the two-plus-year run included a 53-second knockout of Jake Shields this past September and a “Fight of the Night” unanimous decision win over Diego Sanchez in February.
