Koscheck Says Title Fight With GSP Will Be On December 11


MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer

The following is a new tweet from the official Twitter page of UFC welterweight contender and one of the coaches of the upcoming Ultimate Fighter season 12, Josh Koscheck:

“Can't wait until tuf 12 airs in Sept! & oh ya did u guys know, that I am going to be the next welterweight champion come dec 11th. :))))))”

If you take Koscheck's word that would make the fight between TUF 12 coaches Georges St-Pierre and Josh Koscheck, a battle for the UFC welterweight championship, the headline bout of UFC 123.

There is no official venue or location for the Koscheck-GSP fight in December, which has yet to be confirmed by the UFC themselves.

A date that is confirmed is September 15, which will be the season premiere of TUF 12 featuring GSP and Koscheck as opposing coaches. The live season finale will be on Spike TV on December 4, which would make the 12/11 date Koscheck tweeted about exactly a week later.
