Patrick Cote was gunning to face an Axe Murderer next but instead gets Legionarius.

Following his return to the UFC in July, Patrick Cote had been hoping to land a fight with Wanderlei Silva, but ultimately the orgnaziation opted to go another route.

Instead, Cote will face heavy hitting Italian slugger Alessio Sakara at UFC 154 in Montreal.

UFC officials announced the new bout on Friday.

In his return fight to the Octagon, Cote lost by decision to Cung Le in a stand-up battle, and now looks to return to form when he faces Sakara in November.

Sakara will also try to erase the thoughts of his last fight, a knockout loss to Brian Stann from April’s UFC on Fuel 2 show.

Cote vs. Sakara will be part of the UFC 154 undercard headed to Montreal on November 17.

  • To bad, Cote and Wandy was an awesome fight. Hats of to Alessio for stepping in. Both of these guys need a good KO finish right now.

    I love this fight. Sakara has great boxing and heavy hands, but cote has a granite chin and heavy hands as well. Also he’s never been beaten in canada.

    This is a good undercard fight. Almost looks like Dana is hearing the fans’ discontent and putting together some legitimate cards.

    Why is Alessio Sakara still being described as “heavy hitting”?

    • phrankthetank

      my best guess would be that it’s because he hits hard.

      • RubeKegal

        and the last time he used them is???

        • phrankthetank

          4 of 6 of his UFC wins are by KO or TKO

          • RubeKegal

            Ohh right…against

            James Irvin
            Joe Vedepo
            James Lee & Vic Valimaki

            So his hands work against soft competition.

            5-6 in last 11 UFC fights…he’s becoming the new Elvis Sinosic…let’s just get UFC Italy going so we can get rid of this guy.
