Patrick Cote drops to welterweight following a 1-1 stint as a middleweight in his return to the UFC. He went 4-0 in the regional MMA scene after his release from the UFC in October of 2010. In his return, Cote lost a unanimous decision to Cung Le at UFC 148. Most recently, Cote earned a disqualification win over Alessio Sakara, due to numerous shots to the back of the head.
