Patrick Cote (Pictures) doesn't know where he was the night of Nov. 11, 2006. He knows where he wasn't: in the cage, calculating a way to counter the predictable submission attack of Travis Lutter (Pictures).
"I wasn't there at all," Cote said. "Mentally, I wasn't there at all. My game plan was the worst game plan that I've ever had in my life."
It was not the best time to come into a fight unprepared. That nationally televised bout, in which Lutter armbarred Cote in roughly two minutes, was all that stood between him and a shot at the UFC middleweight title.LINK
