Rematch set for UFC 158 as Patrick Cote battles Alessio Sakara in Montreal



Montreal’s Patrick Cote and Italy’s Alessio Sakara have agreed to a rematch at UFC 158 which takes place on March 16, 2013 in Montreal, Quebec.

The fight was announced during the TUF 16 Finale show tonight by UFC commentator Mike Goldberg.

Sakara and Cote first met just a month ago at UFC 154 in Montreal.  The Canadian was the first to stun Sakara, but it was the Italian that rocked Cote and dropped him.  Cote looked to go for a single leg after being dropped, but Sakara rained down a few illegal blows to the back of the head.

The referee stopped the contest, and the fight was awared to Cote in favor of the DQ.

UFC 158 will feature a welterweight title main event between current 170-pound kingpin Georges St-Pierre and challenger Nick Diaz.

Rory MacDonald will also rematch Carlos Condit in the night’s co-main attraction.
