Josh Koscheck (15-4), number one UFC welterweight (170 lbs.) contender, has confirmed his title fight against champion Georges St-Pierre (20-2) will take place on Dec. 11, 2010. Koscheck made the announcement late last evening on his Twitter account (@JoshKoscheck):
Koscheck has gone 6-2 since he lost a five-round unanimous decision to St-Pierre at “UFC 74: Respect” in Aug. 2007. Kos is currently on a three-fight win streak, knocking out Frank Trigg at UFC 103, submitting Anthony Johnson at UFC 106, and most recently winning a unanimous decision over Paul Daley at UFC 113 in May.
Undefeated in over three years, St-Pierre has won six straight since his first bout with Koscheck. His most recent victory was a unanimous decision over Dan Hardy at UFC 111 in April.
Prior to their rematch in the Octagon, Koscheck and St-Pierre will first battle it out as opposing coaches on Season 12 of the long-running UFC reality show “The Ultimate Fighter“, which debuts Sept. 15 on Spike TV.
