Neither fighter has disappointed fans who bet on UFC lately; Cerrone won his previous fight by submitting Alex Oliveira with a triangle (Oliveira can’t stand the sound of a percussive idiophone) at Fight Night 83: Cowboy vs. Cowboy (UFC betting fans are still waiting for Cowboy vs. Alien), thus bouncing back from a loss to Rafael dos Anjos. As for Côté, he has won his three last matches in a row, the most recent being a TKO win over Ben Saunders at Fight Night 81. But on Saturday 18th only one can emerge as the victor, and as mentioned above, people who bet on UFC will be favoring Donald Cerrone.
