"I ll be back in action in October !! It s a new beginning for the predator" he wrote last week.
While not officially announced by the UFC, the only UFC event slated for October is UFC 120, which is set to take place in London, England.
The Canadian fan favorite returned from a long injury lay off in May at UFC 113 where he suffered a loss at the hands of Alan Belcher's rear naked choke. Prior to that fight, Cote fought Anderson Silva for the middle weight title (UFC 90, October 2008), but was forced to retire mid-way through the fight after sustaining a knee injury that left him unable to continue.
Cote's opponent for the October bout has yet to be named, but the middleweight division offers some exciting match ups for the Canadian. Dan Miller and Yoshihiro Akiyama are both coming off of recent loses and could end up across the Octagon from Cote in three month's time.
