The welterweight division has added one of the hardest punchers in the sport as Patrick Cote has made the decision to drop down to 170lbs.Link
Hmm interesting move, would love to see him fight Hardy.
I just cant see the point of the move myself. Best of luck to him though! always entertaining...
I've always thought he was a bit small for a MW. However, he was probably better off at MW because of the general lack of top wrestlers.
He's never been shredded as a MW and he's not keeping up with the rest of the pack so he might as well. Also, when guys drop a weight class they tend to get another shot or two in the UFC as opposed to remaining at their current weight.
Him vs Rick story would be nice but
I bet he lands Claude Patrick
I honestly think his size is fine for MW, just not how he carries his weight. I think he should keep the weight and transform it, explosive power, legs.....etc.
Good way to avoid getting knocked out by Sakara again.
Im in favor of a Cote vs Hardy scrap
