So much for all that posturing from Josh Koscheck about not wanting to fight UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre in his hometown of Montreal.

UFC president Dana White confirmed Monday that GSP and Koscheck will headline UFC 124 on Dec. 11 at the Bell Centre in Montreal. It's the fourth time UFC will host an event in the gorgeous Quebec city, albeit the first in a winter month.

The Koscheck-GSP fight, a rematch of UFC 74 won by the Canadian, is the culmination of their coaching battle on the upcoming season of "The Ultimate Fighter." 

The last time GSP fought at home, he beat Matt Serra at UFC 83 to win back his 170-pound title.
