"yeah bad luck again!!! MCL busted in training for my comeback !!! will be out until feburary at least again !!! Go under surgery again tomorow !! thanks for your support guys !!! But I ll be back stronger than ever I swear !!!"

Former number one middleweight contender Patrick Cote — who underwent major ACL knee surgery in November 2008 — talks about going back under the knife this week to now repair a damaged MCL (in the same knee). "The Predator" has been sidelined since shredding his knee while inside the Octagon opposite reigning division champion Anderson Silva at UFC 90 back in October 2008. The bout resulted in a technical knockout loss for the Canadian, which he feels may have gone his way if the freak accident never happened. The 185-pound class is now teeming with possible title contenders, making his road back to the summit (now slated for Spring 2010) more than likely a long and difficult one.
