Cerrone just recently moved to 170 pounds where he picked up a win over Alex "Cowboy" Oliveira in the main event of a UFC Fight Night event in Pittsburgh in February.

Following the fight, Cerrone seemed more than willing to stay at welterweight, even going as far as suggesting a bout with former champion Georges St-Pierre at UFC 200.

While he won't get St-Pierre in July, Cerrone will stay at 170 pounds while facing one of the heaviest handed fighters in the division.

Cote has been on a roll lately with three straight victories, including two consecutive TKO's in wins over Ben Saunders and Josh Burkman.

Cote is now 5-1 since moving down to 170 pounds, with his only loss coming by decision to current top-five ranked fighter Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson.

"Cowboy" vs. Cote joins the upcoming card in Ottawa that actually features Thompson in the main event as he takes on Rory MacDonald in a five-round fight in the welterweight division.
