UFC Silva Vs. Sonnen II Results: Cung Le Defeats Patrick Cote Via Unanimous Decision

In the second of two matches featuring Bay Area talent at UFC 148 on Saturday night, San Jose superstar Cung Le took on Patrick Cote in middleweight action. Le was coming off a loss against Wanderlei Silva at UFC 139 and really needed a win in his second UFC fight. Cote, meanwhile, was making his UFC return after two years away and four straight wins in the interim.

Both men had a solid fight, appearing to split the first two rounds and both looking tired by the time the third round began. Le cut Cote above the eye in the second round and Cote cut Le near the eye in the third round. Le landed more solid shots throughout the fight, however, including a big head kick. The fight went the distance and went to the judges, where they awarded Le the fight via unanimous decision, 30-27, 30-27, 30-27.
