With welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre on the verge of lapping the entire 170-pound division after running through Dan Hardy on Saturday night, Dana White believes he has an ace in the hole for the division to keep things interesting.

“I’m working on something right now that I can’t talk to you guys about cause I don’t have it done yet,” White said regarding his plans for the winner of Josh Koscheck vs. Paul Daley at UFC 113.

Jon Fitch stated his interest in challenging St-Pierre once again, but White has other plans for Fitch first.

“I’m not kidding when I say that I would like to see [Josh] Koscheck fight [Jon] Fitch,” White admitted. “[They] talk about how bad they want title shots, just like Jon Fitch tonight, ‘I want that title so bad,’ really? How bad do you want it? You wanna fight Koscheck? He’s in your division and he’s one of the best.”

what if blackhouse, AKA and jackson were to merge ?

The only 2 fighters left to fight would be BJ Penn & Gabriel Gonzaga

What could pitting Koscheck against Fitch actually do for the WW division in all honesty? They're both going to lose to GSP again and everyone knows it. My money would be on Fitch to win this fight, but it's pointless anyways.

I haven't heard anybody talking about how they really want to see this fight anyways. I'd rather see Fitch vs. Alves 2 by a long shot. The casual fan probably has virtually no clue who Fitch and Koscheck are and that they train at AKA together.

Nobody cares. Dana is just being an ass about this whole thing if you ask me.

I think we are going to see Jake Shields come into the UFC after his fight with Henderson, which would be a pretty interesting fight, but I don't see Shields taking it.

Jake Shields would add some more depth to the WW division. But he still stands almost no chance against GSP. I don't think Shields is as good as Fitch or any better than Koscheck. GSP needs to move. That's the only thing that can make the ww division entertaining again. I say BJ and GSP both bump up a weight class.

Its gotta be Jake Shields, cause I know that the UFC was in negotation with him a couple times, and if he were to sign he would be almost guranteed a shot at the title

Yep, been saying this for a while now. Dana has been talking about him (almost) as much as he was with Vitor. Shields will be getting air time as one of Chuck's coaches on this season of TUF. What sealed the deal for me though is that Shields is in a Tapout ad in the latest UFC magazine...seems really out of place if he's not bringing him in.

No one will want to see GSP/Shields if Henderson beats Shields' ass. You can scream that the Henderson fight is at 185, but casual fans won't care. They'll see Shields as a guy who lost to a UFC reject. I hope Dana has someone else in mind along with Shields or else he'll look like an idiot again.

It could be Shields....or even Nick Diaz. Maybe it is a Lightweight who is jumping up a weight...or maybe it is a middleweight who is going down a weight? There many possibilities.

I would love to see Nick Diaz back in the UFC, he and his brother would be fighting in the same division now,. but it would still be awesome.
