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.?
