It is being reported the winner of the pivotal UFC 113 scrap between Josh Koscheck and Paul Daley will earn the right to coach opposite welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre on the 12th season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”
In other words, it appears either Kos or Daley will get next dibs at GSP’s title.
MiddleEasy.com states UFC matchmaker Joe Silva contacted Daley over the weekend and alerted the heavy-handed Brit of what was now going to be at stake at UFC 113 on May 8th.
Koscheck holds a 14-4 pro mark and was last seen unleashing the most impressive performance of his career against Anthony Johnson at UFC 106. He executed a perfect gameplan that enabled him to earn a 2ndRound rear-naked submission victory.
Daley continued his explosive ways by putting Dustin Hazelett to sleep in the 1stRound of their UFC 108 scrap. The slugger owns an impressive 23-8-2 record, with 18 of his W’s coming via some sort of knockout.
Daley and Kos have been exchanging verbal jabs well before the contest was ever announced, and their hatred has only snowballed leading up to the top contender bout.
St-Pierre has never faced Daley, however holds a close unanimous decision victory over Koscheck when they met at UFC 76 in August of 2007. The American Kickboxing Academy trained fighter shouldn’t feel too badly about the loss because GSP went on to dominate his next six opponents, a streak the planet’s baddest 170-pounder is currently enjoying.
UFC 113 takes place inside the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
