According to MMAJunkie, Alan Belcher has confirmed his fight with Patrick Cote at UFC 83 on April 19 from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.
Belcher was originally scheduled to fight Ricardo Almeida at UFC 81, but was forced to withdraw three days before the fight with a severe cold.
“I am still under the weather a bit, and I’m going back to the doctor (today),” Belcher told us. “I still have some deep coughing that you can hear real bad in my chest.“
Patrick Cote is on a impressive wining streak after going 0-4 in the UFC. Cote defeated Ultimate Fighter 3 winner Kendal Grove by TKO at UFC 74 and most recently TKO ed Drew McFedries at UFN 12.
