Two of the middleweight division's hardest-hitting sluggers will collide on the main card of UFC 113 in Montreal, when the surging Alan Belcher meets Canadian favorite Patrick Cote, who will be returning from an extensive layoff due to injury.  Canadian MMA site Top MMA News has the report:

Sources close to the fight have informed Top MMA News that this fight has been signed and Patrick Cote vs Alan Belcher will be taking place May 1st at the Bell Center in Montreal at UFC 113.

This is some excellent match-making by Joe Silva, as impressive recent performances from Belcher have earned him main-card status, while Cote will be a huge crowd favorite in Montreal.  Furthermore, Cote is coming off of a long period of inactivity and an underwhelming performance in his last fight against Anderson Silva, and with the skills he and Belcher bring to the table, the UFC is looking for some fireworks in this one.


The current UFC 113 rumored card includes:

Lyoto Machida vs. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua

Quinton Jackson vs. Rashad Evans

Patrick Cote vs. Alan Belcher

Sam Stout vs. Jeremy Stephens

Jonathan Goulet vs. Marcus Davis
