Video: Patrick Cote Calls Out Nick Diaz

Patrick Cote, who is fresh off a win over Ben Saunders at UFN 81, wants to step into the octagon with Nick Diaz next. Cote says he wants a guy who is ranked in the top 15, and that Diaz is that guy. Here’s what he had to say:

“There’s a guy who’s coming back in August, it’s Nick Diaz,” Cote said in Boston. “I would be very happy to share the Octagon with him. He’s a big name. I have nothing personal against him. I’m a big fan of the Diaz brothers. I know he’s going to bring it. It’s going to be a fun fight to promote. If it’s not him, I think I really deserve to be in the top 15 and fight a top 15 guy.”

Diaz’s five-year suspension has been reduced to 18 months, which will allow him to return to competition as soon as August 1st. He was suspended after UFC 183 when he tested over the limits for marijuana metabolites in a post-fight drug screening.
