Patrick Cote Signs New 4-Fight deal With The UFC
(mmaweekly.com)
It looks like the "Predator" will do his stalking in the UFC for the foreseeable future. Patrick Cote has signed a new four-fight deal with the promotion, as confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Monday by sources close to the negotiations. Cote has been out of action since an October 2008 loss to UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. The Canadian blew out his knee in the third round, forcing a stoppage in the title fight. Currently rehabbing and waiting for clearance from his doctors, Cote has one less thing to worry about now that he knows for the immediate future he will continue to call the Octagon his home.

Pat Miletich on Drew McFedries Situation And Making Peace With Dana White
(mma.fanhouse.com)
"My entire team and myself were furious with Drew McFedries because we worked our ass off to get him ready for that fight," Miletich said. "Four different guys offered to go with him to that fight [and] he turned them all down. He went and took one of his buddies to the fight. Then, he not only thanked guys from another camp, which is fine, but it could have stopped there. But to say what he said about his teammates and his team for no logical reason was wrong.

Marcus Davis: Dan Hardy is a ‘disrespectful punk’ whose face will be Swiss cheese at UFC 99
(mmamania.com)
“‘Hate’ is a very powerful word, I know…. But I hate my opponent at UFC 99. I hate Dan Hardy. I really can’t stand this guy and I am counting down to days to June 13, to the Lanxess Arena in when I can smash this kid in the mouth. I want to punch holes in this guy’s face. Hardy has gone so far beyond what is professional. This is more than another fight in the UFC for me, more than getting a win and working towards getting a title shot. This is war…. I’ve only met him maybe three times…. On none of these occasions did Hardy have the guts to say anything disrespectful to my face … like the little coward he is.
