Patrick Cote Set To Make His UFC Return, May 1st
In an exclusive interview with MMACanada.net, Canada's best middleweight Patrick "The Predator" Cote (13-5) confirmed that he will be making his long awaited return to the octagon at the next UFC show in Montreal-- UFC 113 on May 1st.
Cote had this to say about the announcement, "It feels great! I'm very happy and it's about time"
It has been rumored that "The Predator" will face surging middleweight Alan "The Talent" Belcher (15-6), but he was not able to confirm that match-up at this time. Regardless of who he fights, UFC fans, and Canadian MMA fans in particular, will surely welcome the hard-hitting Cote back into the octagon with open arms.
Patrick hasn't fought since suffering a freak knee-injury in the second round of his middleweight title fight with the world's #1 ranked fighter, Anderson "The Spider" Silva (25-4) at UFC 90: Cote vs. Silva in October, 2008. The first round of that fight was fairly close and, with Patrick's power in both hands, there is simply no telling how it would have ended if not for the untimely injury
He is, of course, eager to to prove himself once again in his long-awaited return.
