Report: Georges St. Pierre and Nick Diaz are best candidates to coach TUF 14

The volatile pairing is likely according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, who yesterday told subscribers on his radio show (via Cageside Seats) that it looks like the two are the best candidates to coach the popular Spike TV reality show.

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14, which is presumed to start filming within the next few weeks, was initially going to be the playground for embattled middleweights Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping to trade barbs for an entire season before squaring off in a number one contender bout later this year.

That plan was scrapped when Sonnen's legal troubles continued to plague him to the tune of yet another suspension and a shaky standing among commissions in both California and Nevada.

Left to scramble with very few options on the table, it appears the UFC is poised to push Georges St. Pierre into a second stint as coach just one season removed from his first.

Opposite the welterweight king would be Strikeforce 170-pound champ Nick Diaz,  who is certainly one hell of a fighter but not exactly the most comfortable in front of a camera.

A deal to set these two up to fight, at the very least, appears imminent, as strong rumors have placed the planned clash for this coming December in Montreal at UFC 140.

The timelines match up too conveniently to ignore but can UFC President Dana White really manage to put this all together? And on such short notice, no less? Stay tuned.
