Alright, there are three things going down in this article. It’s like 3-in-1 Shampoo/Conditioner/and something else that will probably give you cancer. Today, I received an email from someone who trains in Team Roughhouse. Apparently over the weekend, 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. You’re probably already putting the pieces together. Whoever is Georges St. Pierre’s rival coach on TUF 12 will eventually face GSP at the end of the show and it will be for the UFC Welterweight title.
If this is true (and I sincerely believe it is), this tells us one of two things regarding the future of UFC. The first of which is due to Anderson Silva’s performance at UFC 112, Dana White has temporarily abandoned his pursuit of that dream GSP vs. Ando match. This could be the case. However, there is always that strange, alternate option that makes all those message board conspiracy theorists salivate over late at night. Put your tin foil hats on for this one. Last week, we published an article that states that due to Anderson Silva’s sporadic performance at UFC 112, he may have violated the NRS Chapter 467.110, Section I code of the Nevada State Athletic Commission by purposefully not performing to the full extent of his ability. Perhaps Dana White wanted to still throw together Anderson Silva vs. Georges St. Pierre (since there wouldn’t be a single person on this earth who wouldn’t drop $54.99 for it), but due to Anderson Silva’s ‘violation’, he could not obtain a Nevada license for The Spider.
Pretty wild stuff, I know it is. I’m so confident that the above mentioned TUF 12 news is true that I’ll invite you to personally slap me in the face with a large trout if it’s false. You must provide your own fish, I’m not going to be carrying one around.
