St. Pierre’s title defense against Josh Koscheck slated for Montreal

It appears the Ultimate Fighter Season 12 is scheduled to culminate in UFC welterweight champ George St. Pierre defending his title against top contender Josh Koscheck in Montreal. According to Dana White, the bout will headline UFC 124 at the Belle Center on December 11th. News of the event was recently confirmed by the UFC President to MMAFighting.

TUF 12 is set to air on Spike starting September 15th. Opposing coaches on the show, St. Pierre and Koscheck fought once before in August 2007 in a bout which “Rush” cruised to a unanimous decision win. GSP has won six straight since beating Koscheck while “Kos” has gone 6-2 over the same span.

UFC 124 will mark the second time St. Pierre has fought with a title on the line in Montreal. The first came in the form of his ultimately successful rematch against Matt Serra, a match-up resulting in one of the most memorable arena-atmospheres in recent history.
