Alessio Sakara pulls out of UFC 158 rematch with Patrick Cote

With the bout being announced just days ago, and fans wanting to see the conclusion to a match where they felt either Sakara or Cote had won, the UFC 158 proposed fight between Patrick Cote and Alessio Sakara is now off.

Sakara, pulled out of the UFC 158 bout after his physician infirmed him of renal stress.  Sakara has been having problems with his kidneys, as explained here:

“I’ve seen spreading news about the rematch with Cote. I wanted this fight so badly, even if Montreal isn’t the right city for the rematch to happen. However, that does not matter now. The fact is, I cannot fight because of my kidneys. Three days ago I got some test results and the doctor (Nephrologist; kidney specialist) has ordered that I stop everything for three months because of the renal (kidney) stress. Right now my manager is getting the date moved [for the rematch]. I’ll be more motivated with the nutritionist to never again risk my health any more.”

Sakara was disqualified for illegal blows delivered to the back of Cote’s head at UFC 154 last month.

Stay tuned for more info on the details of this rematch.
