When I read The Predator was matched with Cung Le at UFC 148 my moustache started to tingle and my voice started to deepen. When I spoke, men from all around flocked to listen and I developed a new-found appreciation for Russians. Then I discovered it wasn't Don Frye, it was the other Predator that was filling in for Rich Franklin. I google'd it and discovered it wasn't Brian Rogers either. All of these predators make me feel like Chris Hansen. No, the particular Predator who will be making an appearance at UFC 148 will be Patrick Cote.
It looks like his strategy of not begging and just beating other dudes who used to be in the UFC has paid off. Cote is running a four fight win streak against Kalib Starnes, Todd Brown, Crafton Wallace and most recently Gustavo Machado. Ok, so Machado isn't an ex-UFC fighter but regardless, with thanks to Zombie Prophet you can check out Patrick Cote vs Gustavo Machado below. [Source]
