From a Spike TV press release:
Two middleweights in need of a win will meet inside the Octagon to start the night’s action, as Patrick Cote (14-6) battles Tom Lawlor (6-3, 1 NC) in a pivotal 185-pound clash. Fighting out of Quebec, the 30 year-old Cote hopes to put his tough luck behind him as he takes on Lawlor. Fighting out of Orlando, FL, Lawlor, renowned for his exciting entrances into the Octagon, looks to turn things around against the veteran Cote.
The evening’s second televised bout is also a middleweight contest, and pits Court McGee (11-1) against Ryan Jensen (16-5). Fighting out of Orem, UT, 25-year old Court McGee is aiming to continue one of the most remarkable turnarounds in the history of mixed martial arts. He looks to win his first bout since the show against veteran Ryan Jensen. A competitor in mixed martial arts since 1997, Omaha native Ryan Jensen hopes to win his second straight against the rising star, McGee.Ryan Jensen "is not impressed at all" by Court McGee: (audio at the 36:21 min mark)
Ryan Jensen - "I just think it’s the wrong timing for (Court McGee) right now. I’m just a little confused with the match-up. I'm not really worried about this dude at all technically. He hasn’t fought anybody tough."
"I'm about as well-rounded as they come. Wherever the fight goes, I'm really not concerned with it in any which way. He does not pose a threat to me ...compared to my last competitors."
"Is the UFC throwing me a bone?"
