December 10: As the crowd cheers in Bell Centre Montreal, Canada, for the weigh-ins of the UFC 124 preliminary and main card fighters for the December 11 event, one cannot dispute the fact that the only fighters that matter that night are Georges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck. The much talk about main card event fighters for UFC 124 finally battled it out on the scale the night before the UFC 124 fight night comes into fruition.
St. Pierre promises his hometown fans that his opponent will not beat him amidst the cheering crowd. As he makes a move in holding out the belt on his waist, he said, “I guarantee you that tomorrow, the bully will be bullied.”
After the two fighters weighed in, they stood toe-to-toe for the traditional pre-fight pose. St. Pierre didn’t even bother to pause in order to acknowledge his throng of supporters. It seems like he can’t wait to face the person who wants to challenge his dominance in the UFC welterweight division.
This will surely be a fight that everyone will remember, especially the screaming fans we saw in Montreal last night. Watch UFC 124 live tonight and we’ll see if St. Pierre will hold on to his title or if Koscheck will snatch it from him!
