Winner of Koscheck-Daley fight could coach at TUF 12; Tito Ortiz looks lightweight in the latest picPosted on April 20, 2010, 09:21 AM by Anton Gurevich
According to MiddleEasy.com, the winner of the Koscheck vs. Paul Daley UFC 113 co-main event fight will find himself coaching at the upcoming Ultimate Fighter 12 show, against the reigning UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre.
The report on the website says: "Today, I received an email from someone who trains in Team Roughhouse. Joe Silva called Paul Daley to let him know that the winner of his upcoming UFC 113 bout with Josh Koscheck will be the new coach on The Ultimate Fighter Season 12 with Georges St. Pierre coaching the opposite team."
If the news are true, this may shatter the hopes of many fans to see the superfight between GSP and "The Spider" Anderson Silva. Ultimate Fighter 12 filming is expected to start sometime between June and August, which means that the rival coaches will not meet before the end of 2010. That kind of schedule will keep GSP sidelined for nearly a year, which is very unlikely in light of the French-Canadian's ambitions to constantly prove his worth as the best Pound for Pound fighter in the World.
Meanwhile, a new picture of "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" Tito Ortiz surfaced up today. It looks like the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion is still struggling to recover from the mysterious illness that forced him to pull out of The Ultimate Fighter 11 filming. Ortiz revealed (on Twitter) about his hospitalization more than one month ago, on March 16th "Nice to be home. They put 6 bags of fluid in me. I'm better now. I lost 15lb. I though I had swine flu but I didn't. Just a really bad flu."
Get well Tito.
