Patrick Cote Inks New Four-Fight Deal with UFC
Patrick Cote’s last fight at UFC 158 earned him a W at welterweight following a long career at middleweight. Cote tell the Bleacher Report:
“I just signed a four-fight deal with the UFC. We’ve talked about my next fight, but nothing is signed, nothing has been decided. They just announced the TUF Canada vs. Australia and everybody has gone crazy on Twitter trying to help me become the coach of Team Canada. I appreciate the support from everybody, maybe it’s going to help.”
The UFC has yet to officially comment on the new season of The Ultimate Fighter Team Canada vs Team Australia, but details will likely be forthcoming in the next few weeks. Cote says…
“If they ask me to do it for sure, I’ll say yes. It would be a big honor for me. I have the experience as a contestant, and to be there as a coach and to represent my country, I think it would be nice for everybody there. I’m pretty well known in Quebec with the French television broadcasts I’ve been doing.
I would go there to help those guys. I would not go there for my personal exposure. I want to help and share what I know with those guys. I did my first fight like 10 years ago. So maybe I’m not the best in every aspect, but I’m good in all areas and I think I could help those guys learn.”
