Patrick Cote-Bobby Voelker Added To UFC 158

Patrick Cote’s welterweight debut will take place against Strikeforce Challengers veteran Bobby Voelker.

The two will be part of UFC 158 on March 16 from Montreal. Cote was originally set to meet Alessio Sakara on the card, but Sakara pulled out with a kidney issue.

Cote (18-8), a former UFC middleweight contender, decided to make the move to welterweight after consulting with his team.

Voelker (24-8) has gone 4-1 during his Strikeforce Challengers career and has won three straight.
