Their first fight ended in a disqualification so they will do it all over again in March.
Middleweights Patrick Cote and Alessio Sakara have agreed to a rematch at UFC 158 in Montreal on March 16.
The fight was announced during the TUF 16 Finale show on Saturday by UFC commentator Mike Goldberg.
Cote and Sakara originally met at UFC 154 in Montreal, and while the fight didn’t last long, it was an exciting match-up until the end.
Sakara rocked Cote with a big shot early in the first round that dropped the granite-chinned Canadian to the mat. As Sakara tried to follow up with hammer fists while Cote grabbed onto a leg looking to stave off a finish.
Unfortunately for Sakara the majority of his punches landed to the back of Cote’s head, and after the stoppage, the Italian fighter was disqualified for the illegal shots.
Now the two fighters will meet again with both searching for a little taste of redemption while fighting in the same city as they met in the last time. UFC 158 is expected to take place on March 16 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
