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.

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.

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.
