Ben Saunders vs. Patrick Cote booked for UFC FN 81

Earlier this week it appeared as if Patrick Cote was going to fight Jake Ellenberger after the pair started a back-and-forth Twitter feud.

Then it seemed as if Cote would be facing Neil Magny after Magny jumped to Ellenberger’s defense on Twitter.

Now, the UFC has announced that Cote will fight Ben Saunders at ‘UFC Fight Night 81’ on January 17th in Boston.

Cote is riding a 2-fight win streak and has won 4 of his last 5, whereas Ben Saunders is riding a 3-fight win streak and has also won 4 of his last 5.

The card will be headlined by a bantamweight title bout between TJ Dillashaw and Dominick Cruz.
