Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Another intriguing welterweight fight is coming to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

The UFC is targeting Donald Cerrone vs. Patrick Côté for the June 18 card in Canada's capital city, has learned. The promotion is expected to announce the 170-pound fight shortly.

Cerrone (29-7, 1 NC) was victorious in his UFC welterweight debut last month when he submitted Alex Oliveira via triangle choke.

Coté (23-9) has won his last three fights in a row, most recently defeating Ben Saundars via TKO in January.

The event, which will mark the UFC's debut in Ottawa, will be headlined by Rory MacDonald vs. Stephen Thompson. The organization has yet to announce which arena in Ottawa will host the card.
