Great news and can't wait to see him get some wins and get back to the UFC. Kinda hope he ends up in MFC though with Edmonton just over an hour away.

I'd rather see him knock out a few cats in strikeforce since it has good exposure and might be an easier road back to the big show. Don't know much about MFC but he should do well in any of the smaller promotions. Here's to hoping he makes it back

MFC is a somewhat local/national organization in Canada. Cote fought for them before winning there MW title (which he apparently vacated when he went to the UFC and they never crowned a new champ) Only thing is MFC has management has came under fire pretty hard from some of there fighters for the way they do buisiness and have had some messy splits. They have been accused of trying to sway sponsors who contact them about sponsoring fighters to instead sponsor the organization and in some cases blocking sponsors who refuse to do so. They do have a fairly solid MW division though with Travis Lutter, Thales Leites, Dean Lister,etc.

I think SF would be great for exposure but I would rather see him back in the UFC long term and I think fighting for SF may be detrimental to that.

i dont care where he fights, or who he fights. he just needs to get his groove back and KO the hell out of some people. add a few high light reel KOs and get on a roll then make another run in the ufc mw division.

Right now I will settle for a good showing and not fish out of water again. I still can't get over the Lawlor fight, that was just bad. Easily the worst showing of his career.

By detrimental I'm guessing you mean him fighting for UFC's competition might keep Dana from extending an invitation back?

Too bad about the management and definitely see why the fighters would be pissed. The higher ups making the most trying to get in the pockets of the men who make their money for them, pretty screwed up.

Cote is for sure better than a lot of fighters in the UFC but maybe got paid too much or something. Wouldn't think so but maybe. I'm sure he'll find success wherever he goes though and if those three are his opponents on his way back to the bigs we'll be seeing him sooner rather than later

He should probably stay away from the UFC for atleast 2-3 years. If he can beat up some scrubs in other organization and get on a 5-7 fight win streak and THEN go back to the UFC he might be able to win 1 fight then get a title shot. Right now i think if he gets re-invited after 2-3 fight he will have to win 3-4 in the UFC for a title shot which i dont see happening.
I dont think anyone will agree with me on this strategy, because Patrick Cote has a good chance of losing even outside of the UFC. Then add that there is not guarantee the UFC would give him a title shot after one fight. He should try and negotiate that as part of a contract.
Example: For his first fight he will fight the number 1 contender in order to decide the next person for a title shot.
(Off-course i only think he should get this in case he gets on a 5 fight win streak against decent opponents and atleast 2 great opponents.
Like i said, im not sure anyone will agree with me BUT this is just how my mind works, especially when i dont really care for this particular fighter. Sorry Toxic

I also dont think that Dana will be upset if StrikeForce picks Cote up. I think if they give him the best offer then he should FOR SURE take them up on it, Dana White will understand. Then after he wins 2-3 fights in StrikeForce, Dana white will re-invite cote, then UFC can keep claiming that SF is full of fighters that are UFC rejects/cuts that use SF as a stepping stone to get back to the "Big Leagues". Its a smart business decision, and also shows that Dana isnt some kind of tyrant when it comes to the fighters doing whats best for them, IMO Dana needs that badly.

Love to see him there as well, dana likes them and they like cote so everybody wins, cote will be back in the big show after a W or two!

slowly walking down the hall, faster than a cannon ball. id like to see cote go to greg jackson.

he needs to get his shit together. cote has all the tools, if he could just put it together he could be easily a top 5 mw.

Greg Jackson can turn everyone around, diego beat paulo thiago at his first bout back with jackson at 121 and ryan jensen should have beaten court had his gas ank been a lot better
