TUF 12: Confirmed

     It is official.  According to Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com, the coaches on the 12th season of UFC’s reality show, The Ultimate Fighter, will in fact be middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre and the winner of the upcoming bout between  Josh Koscheck and Paul Daley.  The news came from Dana White just prior to Friday’s official weigh-ins, which took place at the Ball Centre.

GSP remarked on the news, “I’m very pumped for that and tomorrow I’ll be watching carefully the fight between Koscheck and Daley.”

     The announcement raises the stakes on an already high-stakes match-up, as it was previously confirmed that the winner will also get a shot at the coveted middleweight title.

     If things go in typical fashion, GSP would be defending his title at the conclusion of TUF 12, which is expected to air on Spike TV in September and would come to a conclusion in December.?

    I think Gsp will make a good coach. Koscheck maybe if he can put is ego aside. But i seriously dont see Daley as a coach.

    GSP will be a really good coach, but I’m looking forward to listening to his funny accent every Wednesday.

    Im pretty sure Daley has seen GSP’s domination of Josh already
    Josh better use some headmovement in this fight or he’ll get finished early. If he utilizes his wrestling and tires out Daley, he’ll probably win this.
    Being basically just a striker, isnt enough anymore now days. Look at Hendo’s last performance.

    Man GSP has long breaks between bouts. 1-2 fights a year, c’mon.

    Good article. I appreciate the posts too. Seems like some just want to find something (anything) to complain about, or make a joke about.
