With welterweight king Georges St-Pierre and Josh Koscheck hoarding all the pre-UFC 124 headlines, it’s easy to forget the fight card is stacked with potential thrillers. Just hours before “The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale” jumps off in Las Vegas, the world’s premier mixed martial arts promotion released the complete roster for their December 11th event.

GSP took a unanimous decision win over Koscheck at UFC 74 back in August 2007. He has since rattled off six lopsided victories en route to reclaiming his strap.

Kos earned his top contender moniker by dominating Paul Daley at UFC 113 this past May. He’s currently riding a three-fight winning streak.

Sean McCorkle has tried valiantly to ignite a Twitter war with Stefan Struve, however the 22-year-old has refrained from firing back. Although, the lanky heavyweight has kicked off a McCorkle Photoshop contest to help promote their co-main event.

The pay-per-view broadcast takes place inside the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Here is the finalized roster for the UFC’s end of the decade extravaganza:

Preliminary Bouts:

Pat Audinwood vs. John Makdessi
Ricardo Almeida vs. TJ Grant
Dan Miller vs. Joe Doerksen
Matt Riddle vs. Sean Pierson
Jesse Bongfeldt vs. Rafael Natal
Dustin Hazelett vs. Mark Bocek

Main Bouts:

Thiago Alves vs. John Howard
Joe Stevenson vs Mac Danzig
Jim Miller vs. Charles Oliveira
Stefan Struve vs. Sean McCorkle
Josh Koscheck vs. Georges St-Pierre (UFC Welterweight Champion)
