Default GSP V KOS Date set

Georges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck will first collide as coaches on the "Ultimate Fighter" season 12, and then the two will face off for the UFC welterweight championship on December 11 at UFC 123.

Koscheck announced the date of the fight via his Twitter account late Tuesday night.

"Can't wait until TUF 12 airs in September, and oh yeah did you guys know, that I am going to be the next welterweight champion come December 11th," Koscheck twittered.

The date for the fight makes sense because of the TUF 12 finale show currently rumored to take place on December 4 in Las Vegas, with St. Pierre and Koscheck squaring off in the main event of a pay-per-view show the following weekend.

The last piece of the puzzle for the December 11 show is the venue that it will take place at.

One city that seems marked off the map is Koscheck's hometown of Pittsburgh. The Edinboro graduate had lobbied for his hometown to get the title fight, but conflicting dates seem to have squashed that idea for now.

The new Consol Energy Center is set to open in Pittsburgh this fall, hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team, as well as other concerts and sporting events in the area.

On December 11, the Consol Energy Center is set to host a NCAA double header for the SEC vs. Big East basketball tournament, with Rutgers playing Auburn, and Pittsburgh taking on Tennessee. Both games are set to be nationally televised on ESPN and ESPN 2, which virtually eliminates the arena from hosting a UFC event the same day.

With Pittsburgh seemingly out of the running, the UFC may hold a second event in December in Las Vegas, but there's been no confirmation at this time on a venue. MMAWeekly will have more information on the event as it becomes available.

Still only see this fight going one way but hey Kos can dream
