The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season three middleweight winner Kendall Grove (8-3) will take on TUF 4 185-pound finalist Patrick Cote at UFC 74: "Respect," on August 25, according to MMAWeekly.com.
Cote also confirmed the bout on a recent Underground forum post.
Grove defeated Alan Belcher in his most recent bout via submission at UFC 69 in April. In his last UFC tilt, Cote coasted to a unanimous decision win over Scott Smith at UFC 67 in February.
It did not go over well with fans or UFC President Dana White.
"Da Spyder" turned in an impressive and dominant performance over Belcher. Cote, on the other hand, headed back to TKO in Canada for a fight -- and a first-round technical knockout win over Jason Day -- to prove that he still belongs inside the Octagon.
This is a tough fight for Cote, who is 1-4 in UFC competition despite being extremely talented. Grove is going to make him work for 15 minutes ... if it lasts that long.
Maybe we'll see a different Cote at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, now that he has that elusive first UFC win under his belt.
Interesting fight and a solid addition to a card that has some nice match ups thus far from top to bottom.
