Patrick Cote Discusses His UFC 154 Bout With Alessio Sakara
Posted by Larry Csonka on 11.12.2012

- Patrick Cote recently spoke about his UFC 154 fight with Alessio Sakara. Here are the highlights…

On Fighting Alessio Sakara: "I think Sakara's going to bring it. You know, 90 percent of his fights in the UFC he won or he lost in the first round. I'm expecting a war right away."

On Sakara's Skills: "Sakara is a really good boxer," he said. "He's fast with good combinations. And he's lost his last two fights, so he's going to come here really hungry. So he's going to want to win this fight, but me too. He's a BJJ black belt. He's from a good team, from American Top Team. I'm sure he's well-rounded, but his instinct, he's a boxer. He's a former pro boxer like me, and for sure like me, and he'll want to prove who the better boxer is in this fight. I'm prepared to go the ground too. I did a lot of wrestling (practice) to stay on my feet, but if it goes to the ground, I'm going to put him on his back and pound him out."

On Having a Full Camp: "I had a fully raining camp (for Sakara)," Cote said. "That's a big difference than the Cung Le fight. I only had four weeks to prepare for Cung Le. This time I had a full 10 weeks of training this time, so I'm ready to go."

On His 10th Anniversary in Fighting: "This year this is my 10th year of pro fighting," he said. "In November 2002, I did my first pro MMA fight. I have a lot of experience now. It's always fun to fight in front of our fans and family and friends. But when the doors close to the cage, it's the same thing whether you fight in Vegas or Brazil or Chicago or Montreal."
