BJ Penn and Paul Daley/Josh Koscheck winner to coach TUF 12?

According to, a rumour has surfaced that UFC lightweight champion, B.J. Penn will move up to the welterweight division and coach “The Ultimate Fighter” season 12 opposite the winner of the Paul Daley vs. Josh Koscheck fight, set to go down at UFC 113 on May 8th in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Aussuming this is true BJ Penn will have to be successful this weekend at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi, and maybe result in him vacating the 155 pound title.

Paul Daley entered the UFC at the back end of 2009 with two big wins knocking out both Martin Kampmann and Dustin Hazelett in the first round.

Koscheck has also been on a win streak, stopping both Frank Trigg and Anthony Johnson inside the 3 round limit.

The rumour does make sense for BJ Penn, who has publically stated he wants to ease back in to the welterweight division and not be fast-tracked to the title.
