The fight against Saunders (19-6-2) started with both fighters studying each other with good body kicks, and while on clinch the Floridian took the game to the ground, landing on top and “The Predator” worked from the guard, presenting an amazing Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

He tried an arm bar, transiting to pass the guard and them working a powerful ground and pound until the end of the round, defending very well each rubber guard attempt from Saunders, who had Eddy Bravo on his corner.

But Côté came with an amazing infighting technique, in a combinations of punches knocking down Ben Saunders, that was coming from three straight victories, and just waited for the referee, Steve Rita, intervention at 3:46 from the second round.
