In his first fight since being released by the UFC in October, Patrick Cote earned a unanimous decision over fellow UFC vet Kalib Starnes in the main event of Saturday’s Ringside MMA 10 at Montreal’s Bell Centre.
The event also saw The Ultimate Fighter 11’s Seth Baczynski earn his second-straight win over Alex Garcia after dropping his UFC debut to Brad Tavares last June.
At Friday’s MFC 29 event in Ontario, Canada, welterweight champion Douglas Lima and light heavyweight champ Ryan Jimmo retained their titles with wins over Terry Martin and Zak Cummings respectively, while UFC vets Marcus Davis, Hermes Franca, and Pete Spratt also earned wins on the HDNet-televised card.
Other weekend winners included UFC veterans Josh Neer, Matt Grice, and The Ultimate Fighter 8 winner Efrain Escudero, while several notable women were also in action, as Julie Kedzie earned her fourth-straight win and Erin Toughill was upset in her return from a two-year layoff.
