Patrick Cote: “I hope to finish the year with the UFC after two big wins.”

Former UFC middleweight title contender, Patrick Cote gives his time table for his hopeful UFC return, after signing with Canadian MMA promotion, Ringside MMA, he hopes to pull off two big wins by the end of the year and return to the UFC’s octagon.

Cote, speaking via Sherdog.com, said:

“I signed for two fights. I’m going to fight April 9 and, after that, in June. After that, I hope to finish the year with the UFC after two big wins. Probably, the UFC will call me back, but you never know. The only thing I can control now is my fight on April 9 and how I go in there and knock somebody out.”

“Kalib is well-known for his fight against Nate Quarry at UFC 83. He ran a little bit in that fight, but I think it would be a big mistake for me to [prepare for this fight] based on that performance. He’s a good BJJ guy, and he is good [on the ground]. He’s like everybody else. He wants to get back in the UFC. For sure, he’s going to be ready, and I can’t take him lightly.”

“Since the announcement was on the Internet that the UFC fired me, I’ve gotten a lot of offers from other organizations. But Ringside was there from the beginning. They’ve shown me a lot of respect and [signed me for] good money. I put my cards on the table, and I told them that my goal is to get back to the UFC. They understand that, and they respect my choice for what I want in the future.”
