The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 12 coaches Georges St. Pierre and winner of Koscheck vs Daley named for Sept. 15


The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 12 coaches have been named for Season 12, and it may not come as much of a surprise who gets the upcoming gig on the popular Spike TV reality show.

We will however, have to wait until Sunday morning to know for sure.

As previously reported back in April, the winner of the Josh Koscheck vs. Paul Daley welterweight scrap at UFC 113 this Saturday night (May 8) will be declared the 170-pound number one contender and land the coaching spot opposite reigning division champion Georges "Rush" St. Pierre.

TUF 12 will feature an all-lightweight class and premiere on Wednesday, September 15, 2010, at 10 p.m. ET.

The only possible downside to this news, is trying to convince half of the incoming TUF contestants to train with Koscheck or Daley, while their opponents get to study under the tutelage of one of the sport's most dominating fighters (and his coaching staff).

St. Pierre had a brief coaching appearance on Season 4 while Koscheck entered the UFC through the inaugural season way back in 2005.

"Semtex" is new to the franchise, but could quickly elevate himself into one of the sport's biggest heels with his penchant for televised trash talking. But first things first, he needs to overcome "Kos" on Saturday night in Montreal.

Stay tuned to for more information on the upcoming season of TUF 12 as it becomes available.
