Georges St-Pierre, Winner of Koscheck-Daley to Coach TUF 12

MONTREAL -- Georges St-Pierre and the winner of UFC 113's Josh Koscheck vs. Paul Daley fight will be the coaches on season 12 of The Ultimate Figher, Dana White announced prior to Friday's weigh-ins at the Bell Centre.

"I'm very pumped for that," St-Pierre said, "and tomorrow I'll be watching carefully the fight between Koscheck and Daley."

White announced at Thursday's pre-fight press conference that the winner of Koscheck-Daley will fight GSP for the title later this year.

The 12th season of The Ultimate Fighter is expected to air in September on Spike TV.

"I figured this would be the perfect place to announce the next coaches for the next season of The Ultimate Fighter," White said, considering Montreal is GSP's hometown.

"It's a big fight for these guys," White said of Koscheck and Daley. "Not only do they get a shot at the title and a shot at Georges St-Pierre, they get a chance to coach on The Ultimate Fighter."

GSP was an assistant coach on the fourth season of the show, but never a head coach. He successfully defended his 170-pound title against Dan Hardy at UFC 111 in March.

If history is any lesson, GSP will then defend his title against the winner of Saturday's No. 1 contender fight following the conclusion of the show in December.
