Patrick Côté started his martial arts training in the Canadian Army, where he took up boxing. Côté added kickboxing and wrestling to his repertoire, and then started studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Fabio Holanda.

Côté served in the army until 2004, when he started training full time. He currently trains with Team Union. He also periodically trains with another Canadian MMA fighter, Georges St. Pierre, whom he met while competing in TKO Major League MMA, where they’ve become friends. He also trained with Mark Dellagrotte in preparation for his UFC 67 fight against Scott Smith. He also trains in Jiu Jitsu and Wrestling at BTT Canada/Gamma in Montreal.

Côté began his career in TKO, where he went undefeated with five wins and captured the TKO Light Heavyweight Championship. His big break came after Lion’s Den veteran Guy Mezger had to pull out of the main event fight with Tito Ortiz at UFC 50 due to injury and Côté was called in with four days notice that his original opponent against Marvin Eastman at UFC 50 was switched for Ortiz. Côté lost by unanimous decision. He did not win at a UFC pay per view until UFC 67.

In 2006, Côté joined the competition at The Ultimate Fighter 4 in the middleweight tournament, and finally won his first UFC match (albeit an exhibition match) over Jorge Rivera. He advanced to the semifinals – where he beat Edwin Dewees – and proceeded to the finale, where he lost by first round submission to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighter Travis Lutter. With the loss to Lutter factored in and none of The Ultimate Fighter exhibition bouts included, Côté's official UFC record fell to 0-4.

Côté is a former TKO Light Heavyweight Champion, King of the Cage Canadian Light Heavyweight Champion (victory over Bill Mahood at KOTC: Anarchy), and the Maximum Fighting Championships World Middleweight Champion (victory over Jason MacDonald at MFC 9 in March 2006).

Côté earned his first win in the UFC at UFC 67, defeating Scott Smith by unanimous decision.
