Patrick Cote returns to the UFC Octagon to face Thiago Alves in blockbuster match!

One of Canada’s poster boy’s will return to action as Patrick Cote (23-10 MMA, 10-10 UFC) will fight Thiago Alves (21-11 MMA, 13-8 UFC) in a welterweight bout at UFC 210. UFC officials announced the new booking after an original report by Canada’s RDS television station.

UFC 210 takes place April 8 at KeyBank Center in Buffalo, N.Y. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, though the bout order hasn’t been finalized.

Cote will be looking to get back on track after a TKO loss to Donald Cerrone at UFC Fight Night 89 this past June in Ottawa, Canada. That setback snapped a three-fight winning streak that included TKO victories over Josh Burkman and Ben Saunders.

Alves, a former welterweight title challenger, is back to 170 pounds after making an attempt to go to lightweight at UFC 205 this past November. The Brazilian missed weight badly for his fight against Jim Miller, which he went on to lose by decision. That gave him back-to-back losses after a doctor’s stoppage TKO setback against Carlos Condit in M ay 2015 at welterweight. Alves fought Georges St-Pierre for the welterweight title at UFC 100 in July 2009, where he suffered a decision loss that started his current 4-6 slide.

With the addition, the latest UFC 210 card includes:

Champ Daniel Cormier vs. Anthony Johnson – for light-heavyweight title
Gegard Mousasi vs. Chris Weidman
Jan Blachowicz vs. Patrick Cummins
Irene Aldana vs. Katlyn Chookagian
Shane Burgos vs. Charles Rosa
Will Brooks vs. Charles Oliveira
Sean Strickland vs. Kamaru Usman
Magomed Bibulatov vs. Jenel Lausa
Thiago Alves vs. Patrick Cote
