On Friday afternoon, a middleweight affair between Patrick Cote (Pictured) and Alessio Sakara was added to the UFC 154 lineup.

In his return to the big leagues, Cote dropped a decision to kickboxing specialist Cung Le at UFC 148. “The Predator” had rattled off four consecutive wins prior to July’s defeat.

Sakara hasn’t been seen since getting put to sleep by Brian Stann at “UFC on FUEL TV 2” in April. It was the Italian’s second straight loss.

The 185-pound scrap will likely appear in the card’s prelims.

Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada hosts the festivities.

Here are the athletes expected to perform up north:

Rodrigo Damm vs. Antonio Carvalho

Stephen Thompson vs. Besam Yousef

Patrick Cote vs. Alessio Sakara

Rafael dos Anjos vs. Mark Bocek

Pablo Garza vs. Mark Hominick

Francis Carmont vs. Tom Lawlor

Martin Kampmann and Johny Hendricks

Carlos Condit (UFC interim welterweight champion) vs. Georges St-Pierre (UFC welterweight champion)
