Patrick Cote vs. Alessio Sakara at UFC 154 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on Nov. 17th

Former middleweight title contender, Patrick Cote will face Italian heavy hitter, Alessio Sakara at UFC 154 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on November 17th, 2012 The news was revealed by the Las Vegas based promotion earlier today, meaning bout agreements have most likely been signed.

Cote was looking to challenge MMA legend, Wanderlei Silva but failed after “The Axe Murderer’s” father just passed away earlier this week. He recently returned to the octagon only to be defeated by former Strikeforce middleweight champion, Cung Le via unanimous decision.

Sakara will look to keep his job with a win heading into this one after losing back-to-back fights, first a unanimous decision loss to Chris Weidman, followed most recently by a first round knockout loss to Brian Stann at UFC on FUEL 2 in April.
