There has been much speculation concerning which UFC welterweight would be next up for current title holder, Georges St. Pierre. Could it be the winner of the UFC 113 showdown between Josh Koscheck and Paul Daley, or will it be the winner of the upcoming rematch between former GSP foes Jon Fitch and Thiago Alves?
Today UFC President Dana White put that speculation to rest during the pre-UFC 113 press conference where the head honcho revealed that it would in fact be the winner of the Koscheck vs. Daley clash that will be next in line for a crack at GSP and the UFC welterweight championship.
UFC 113 takes place this Saturday evening, May 9, from Montreal, Canada. The main event of the evening will be a light heavyweight title clash rematch between Lyoto Machida and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
Koscheck is currently on a two-fight win streak in the UFC with decisive stoppages over Frank Trigg and Anthony johnson, while Daley has also won back-to-bacvk tussles in the promotion with recent knockouts of Martin Kampmann and Dustin Hazelett.
