DonaldĀ “Cowboy” Cerrone takes on all comers, former middleweights included. According to MMAFighting, the former WEC lightweight champ is set to take on former middleweight title-challenger Patrick Cote.

This bout isn’t official yet, but it’s being targeted for UFC’s fight card in Ottawa, Canada, which will feature a battle of top welterweights in Rory MacDonald vs. Stephen Thompson.

Following a quick title loss to lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos, Cerrone moved to welterweight where he easily choked out Alex Oliveira.

Cote, who in 2008 challenged then-middleweight champ Anderson Silva in a losing effort, is riding a three-fight win streak at welterweight, coming off a TKO win over Ben Saunders last January.
