TORONTO —Patrick (The Predator) Cote is delighted to be back in the UFC. Patrick Willis Jersey . Although, in truth,
the Montreal middleweight never left. While Cote last fought in the Octagon in
October 2010 at UFC 121, he has been a constant on all UFC broadcasts in his
role as the organizations French-language commentator. He also is an MMA and
boxing analyst on the TVA network. Cote (18-7) takes on former Strikeforce
champion Cung Le at UFC 148 on July 7 in Las Vegas—a return to mixed martial
arts biggest stage that was the domino effect of an injury to Vitor (The Phenom)
Belfort. Belfort was slated to meet fellow Brazilian Wanderlei (The Axe
Murderer) Silva at UFC 147 last Saturday. But a hand injury sidelined Belfort
and the UFC decided to shift former middleweight title-holder Rich Franklin from
UFC 148 to replace him. That left Le in need of an opponent. Enter the
32-year-old Cote, who has won four straight since his last UFC outing. The
former Canadian soldier had been confident he would fight his way back into the
UFC. But that didnt stop him from preparing for a future outside the cage. “Its
going very well,” he said of his broadcast career. “Im doing a lot of TV, Im
going to have my own show next season (on TVA). So its pretty nice.” Cote calls
the UFC fights live from a studio in Montreal but is cageside for the Canadian
shows. He will return to the microphone after Le—until his next fight. He
says the TV work has helped him keep tabs on the opposition. “Theres a lot of
UFC shows and I do all of them so Im pretty on point about whats going on in the
UFC,” he said. Cote also has a company that deals in nutrition
(www.korefitliving.com). “I took care of my future. Its OK. If I have to stop
fighting tomorrow, I can. Now Im doing it because I love to fight, I still enjoy
it. “Thats why Im fighting better now, I think. I dont have all this pressure
that I need to fight, Im scared to lose because I have to feed my family.” Cotes
11-fight UFC history dates back to October 2004 when, on short notice, he was
moved up a weight class to the main event against Tito Ortiz at UFC 50. At the
time, Cotes screensaver just happened to be a shot of Ortiz. Cote lost but put
up a good showing, earning him the gratitude of the UFC. He also rocked Ortiz at
one point in the fight, a snapshot that became his new screensaver. He was
beaten in his next two UFC bouts before joining the cast of Season 4 of “The
Ultimate Fighter,” which featured veterans looking for a second chance. Cote
made it to the November 2006 final but lost to Travis Lutter. Cote then reeled
off five wins—four in the UFC —to earn a shot at middleweight champion
Anderson Silva at UFC 90 in October 2008. He lasted two rounds before blowing
out his knee. Two sets of knee surgery followed. He returned at UFC 113 in May
2010, only to have Alan (The Talent) Belcher pile drive him on his head before
choking him out (a move Cote thinks should be illegal). Cote was cut after a
poor performance against (Filthy) Tom Lawlor at UFC 121. Cote thought a March
win in Brazil last time out against Gustavo Machado might have earned him a spot
at UFC 149 in Calgary on July 21. “I was watching the card every day. Man, there
were more and more fights booked—and I wasnt there. So I was kind of
wondering what was going on. But yeah, I was very confident about being back in
the UFC, but not on a big show like that—probably the biggest card of the
year. And not in a big fight like that too.” Le, 40, is an unpredictable
kickboxer with a dazzling array of spinning kicks and attacks. “Hes a very
dangerous striker,” said Cote, no slouch when it comes to striking himself.
“Explosive, very agile with his legs. Some weird angles. Hes tricky too … Im
going to have my hands full but Im really confident that Ill be able to put him
away.” Le (7-2) is coming off a UFC 139 loss to Wanderlei Silva, who eventually
ran him down and punished him. “The key is to put pressure on him,” said Cote.
“I cant let him fight his fight. If I let him take control of the pace of the
fight, Im going to be in big trouble … He has to fight my fight.” NOTES —The
injury woes continue for UFC 149 in Calgary next month. Daniel Pineda (17-8) has
replaced the injured George Roop against featherweight Antonio (Pato) Carvalho
(13-5) of Ajax, Ont. NaVorro Bowman Jersey . In the 36-hole finish
Sunday in the wind-delayed tournament, Shin took a three-shot lead into the
final round after shooting a 1-under 71 in the morning. Elite Randy Moss Jersey . —Barbara Jardin
of Montreal highlighted a big medal day for Canada at the U. http://www.cheapsanfrancisco49ersjersey.com/delanie-walker-jersey
. On behalf of Bell Media, I wish to extend our congratulations to the official
FIFA Womens World Cup Canada 2015 host cities announced Friday – Edmonton,
Alberta; Moncton, New Brunswick; Montreal, Quebec; Ottawa, Ontario; Vancouver,
British Columbia; and Winnipeg, Manitoba. Joe Staley Jersey . Stanton hit his 12th home
run in May to tie the franchise record for a single month and the Marlins
completed a three-game sweep of the first-place Washington Nationals with a 5-3
win Wednesday night. A.J. Jenkins Jersey . Derrick Washington
gained 139 yards and two TDs on 14 carries and added another touchdown via the
air for Missouri (5-0, 1-0 Big 12), which won in Lincoln for the first time
since 1978. Jeremy Maclin caught five passes for 89 yards and scored once.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. —The Charlotte Bobcats have agreed to a two-year contract with
former Los Angeles Lakers point guard Ramon Sessions, said a person familiar
with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press Thursday on
condition of anonymity because the move has not been publically announced.
Financial terms of the deal have not been announced. Sessions replaces
D.J. Augustin, whose qualifying offer was rescinded earlier Thursday. The move
made Augustin, last years starting point guard, an unrestricted free agent.
Sessions is entering his sixth season and averaged 12.7 points, 6.2 assists and
3.8 points per game last season for the Lakers with 19 starts. Hes previously
played for Milwaukee, Minnesota and Cleveland and has averaged 11.1 points and 5
assists per game during his career. Sessions opted out of his contract with the
Lakers to sign with the Bobcats. Its unclear at this point wholl be the teams
starting point guard. The Bobcats drafted Kemba Walker with the ninth pick in
last years draft and owner Michael Jordan likes the savvy of the former
Connecticut star, although hes a little undersized at 6-foot-1. Kyle Williams Jersey. Jordan has a major role
in the decision to draft Walker, who played in spurts last season and had one
triple-double as a rookie. Augustin leaves after four seasons with the Bobcats.
He was Charlottes ninth overall pick in the 2008 draft. By rescinding Augustins
qualifying offer, the Bobcats saved about $4.4 million under the salary cap—
money they turned around and used to sign Sessions. Augustin was initially
selected by the Bobcats with the ninth overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. In
four NBA seasons, he played in 282 total games for the Bobcats with averages of
10.9 points, 4.4 assists and 2.0 rebounds but struggled at times with shooting.
Last year he played in 48 games, averaging 11.1 points, 6.4 assists and 2.3
rebounds. ’ ’ ’
