Awesome news! Glad to see Cote back, and this is about as well as they could have done on short notice. I don't think either guy wants to see this hit the ground, so it should be fun.

Should have been Cote vs Wand and kept Le vs Franklin but this works too.

Cote's UFC record is 4-7? That seems surreal to me.

Oh well, will be 5-7 soon enough.

When you were originally promised blueberries, you wanted the blueberries so bad - you can taste it.......and now you have to settle for raspberries? All of a sudden I'm not hungry anymore.

Cote is my favorite fighter so I am a bit partial to him but I think this is a good matchup for Cote. Cote should be able to finish Cung on their feet. Cote does need to avoid Cung's unorthodox stand up techniques and whatnot as they are dangerous and damaging but I think Cote can handle what Cung has to offer. Cote does have a chin of granite and I have never seen anyone daze him or faze him in the slightest. I just hope this one doesn't end up on the ground with Cote on the bottom. Cung does have some wrestling experience which scares me somewhat. Cung could never finish Cote on the ground...but he might be able to hold him there in a lay and pray situation and eek out a decision in the process. if Cote ends up on top in a ground game Cung is toast. I am hoping Patrick ends this with a KO or TKO somewhere in round 1.

WAR COTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You guys are way too hard on Cote and you have way too much faith in Cung. I can't believe the stuff I am reading.
