Patrick “The Predator” Cote will make his debut for Montreal based Ringside MMA on April 9 at the Bell Centre against fellow former UFC middleweight Kalib Starnes.
The bout was announced on Friday by Ringside MMA during a press conference with their fighters.
The card will also feature a co-main event pitting Roger Hollett against Steve Bosse in what could be an extremely hard hitting bout.
Cote makes his debut for Ringside MMA after struggles cost him a few fights in the UFC, and he was released. The Canadian born fighter has vowed to return to his winning ways and will start the journey on April 9 in his hometown of Montreal.
Since a very disappointing end to his UFC career, Kalib Starnes has gone 3-2 overall and hopes to pick up a big win when he faces Cote in April.
More fights are expected to be announced in the coming weeks by Ringside MMA for the April card.
