The loss to Lawlor was Cote’s third in a row. In May, Cote returned from a lengthy layoff due to injuries and was submitted by Alan Belcher. Prior to that, the powerful striker’s title fight with champion Anderson Silva came to an end in October, 2008, after incurring a knee injury in the third round.

Cote, who had won five straight before contesting Silva for the title, exits from the UFC with a record of 13-7.
