Patrick Cote's controversial UFC 154 disqualification victory over Alessio Sakara will stand.
On Friday, Quebec's La Regie des alcools des courses et des jeux (the
baord that governs combat sports in the province) declined to hear
Sakara's protest that referee Dan Miragliotta mishandled the bout, which
took place Nov. 17 at Montreal's Bell Centre.
French-language outlet LaPress.ca was the first to report the board's decision.
