The Ultimate Fighter: Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck Finale UFC 124: St-Pierre vs. Koscheck 2 UFC 125: Resolution

UFC 124: St-Pierre vs. Koscheck 2 was a mixed martial arts pay-per-view event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on December 11, 2010 at Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.[3] The event was the fourth that the UFC has hosted at the Bell Centre following UFC 83, UFC 97 and UFC 113 and the fifth event held in Canada along with UFC 115 which was held in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Background[edit]

A training injury forced Jason MacDonald out of his fight with Rafael Natal on October 20, 2010. He was replaced by UFC newcomer Jesse Bongfeldt.[4]

On October 26, 2010, Anthony Waldburger had to pull out of his fight with Matthew Riddle due to an injury.[5] He was replaced by Sean Pierson.[6]

UFC 124 featured live preliminary bouts streamed on UFC.com rather than Spike TV due to the 2010 Spike Video Game Awards being aired in the same time slot.[7]

UFC 124 marked the first – and only – time that the UFC let the fans vote online for the Fight of the Night.[8]
