In the co-main event, Patrick Cote and Donald Cerrone will throw down in the welterweight division. Current odds have Cerrone as a 1.65 (-155) and Cote as a 2.45 (+145) underdog. This fight will be Cerrone’s second bout in the welterweight division. He won his first fight against the other Cowboy, Alex Oliveira via first round submission back in February. Overall, Cerrone is 29-7. He is 16-4 when fighting in the Octagon. It is well known that he is primarily a kickboxer, but tends to go for chokes when he rocks his opponents with 16 of his 29 wins by submission and 5 by TKO. Patrick Cote will be fighting at home in Canada on Saturday. He is 23-9 overall and 10-7 in the UFC. At one point he challenged for the middleweight title. He has now fought as a welterweight in his last 6 bouts and is an impressive 5-1. Cote tends to either win by TKO or decision with 10 wins by TKO and 9 via decision. In this fight, we like Cerrone quite a bit. First of all, he is favoured by our model. Secondly, Cote is 5-1 which sounds impressive, but if you look at the types of guys he is beating, they’re more like middle tier welterweights. Cerrone has been fighting and beating many of the top lightweight contenders and even stepped up and faced Alex Oliveira who was 3-1 in his weltweight debut. Add to those two factors the fact that Cote is 36 years old and very likely on the tail end of his career and we think a bet on Cerrone is a no-brainer. We placed a 2 unit bet on Donald Cerrone at 1.65 (-155) at Sportsbook.ag.
