Patrick Cote vs. Stephen Thompson Added to UFC 178

A welterweight fight between Patrick Cote and Stephen Thompson has been added to UFC 178, according to a report on Sunday.

MMAWeekly.com independently confirmed an initial report by The Canadian Press that the Cote-Thompson tilt was added to the Las Vegas fight card, which is scheduled to take place Sept. 27 in Las Vegas.

Cote (20-8) comes into the fight fresh off his stint as coach on TUF: Nations. At the show's season finale, Cote scored a unanimous decision over opposing coach Kyle Noke. He is the winner of three in a row.

Thompson (9-1) is also on a three-fight win streak, most recently dispatching Robert Whittaker with a first-round technical knockout at UFC 170 last February.

UFC 178 is currently without a venue, but an announcement on the card's location is expected in the coming weeks. The card will be headlined by a light heavyweight title rematch between champion Jon Jones and challenger Alexander Gustafsson.
