Patrick Cote Inks New UFC Deal; Hopes to Land Coaching Job on New TUF
BY DAMON MARTIN (FEATURED COLUMNIST) ON APRIL 30, 2013
Patrick Cote has found new life at welterweight, and the UFC likes what they’ve seen so far.
They liked it so much that they’ve inked Cote to a new four-fight deal following his last victory over Bobby Voelker, which served as his debut at 170 pounds.
Cote’s manager Joe Cavallaro confirmed the news to Bleacher Report on Tuesday.
Following a long career at middleweight, Cote dropped down to welterweight for his last fight at UFC 158 and came away with a unanimous decision win. Now with his new multi-fight deal in place, Cote is looking forward to his next trip to the Octagon, although he’d like a bit of a detour along the way.
The UFC is currently in the process of putting together its next international version of the Ultimate Fighter, with the new season expected to pit Team Canada against Team Australia.
While no offers have been made or even discussed at this point, Cote would love to throw his name in the ring as a viable option to coach Team Canada on the newest installment of the long running reality show.
