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.
