Middleweights Patrick Cote and Alessio Sakara will square off at UFC 154, UFC officials announced on Friday. The card takes place November 17 from Montreal’s Bell Centre.
The expected main event will feature UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre facing interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit. The exact placement for Cote-Sakara was not made known.
Cote (17-8) returned to the UFC earlier this year, but was defeated by Cung Le. The former No. 1 contender has not won a UFC fight since 2008.
Sakara (15-9) sports a 6-6 UFC mark all-time. He has dropped his last two appearances inside the Octagon.
