Featherweight Erik Koch brings GTL to the UFC

Cagewriter

Erik Koch is from Cedar Rapids, Iowa and trains in Milwaukee, Wisc. Neither place is known for its sunshine, so Koch's George Hamilton-esque tan was noticed by reporters at the Ultimate Fight Night 25 open workouts.

At least he admits that the tan is not au natural, though someone should break it to Koch that a glass of milk is a way better source of vitamin D.

Koch will face "The Ultimate Fighter" winner Jonathan Brookins on Saturday. He was supposed to face Cub Swanson at UFC 132, but Swanson pulled out due to an injury. Koch is coming into this fight on a three-fight win streak. His one loss under the Zuffa banner is to Chad Mendes on a fight that Koch took on short notice.
