You get a shot at the world title that you have had a dream of holding your whole lifetime. You last longer in the cage with the champ than any fighter than before you. Your knee blows out on you and you lose the bout. How do you feel?

the more i see of cote the more i dislike him. the guy is a b level fighter and got the shot because he was hot at the right time. then he goes into the fight and thinks he's great because he took silva to the third round, but there's one problem, he inflicted no damage at all on the spider. how can somebody be so cocky like that just because they pressed forward all fight and landed next to nothing. ya he can take a shot, but come on he wasn't beating silva, he wasn't even close, no matter how long he lasted.

well he has to get another shot at silva to even get a chance to beat him. Which i dont know if he will get that rematch because it seems he might be out awhile and silva/UFC will have other plans.

It rubbed me the wrong way when Cote began making a big deal out of making it to the third round. He lost both of the previous rounds, and didn't put up nearly as competetive a fight as Hendo and Lutter. This isn't survival, it's about winning.

Silva didn't inflict any damage either man, i don't think a B level fighter would have been so fresh after 2 rd with Silva !!
Cote is a world class fighter and he didn't win his championship fight in a cracker jack box !! He beat Almeida who was supposed to submit Cote in 3 sec according to the greatest brains out here , if a remember correctly !!

Rashad evans went into that liddell fight looking to land his big right hand. Some say thats all he had against liddell. He landed it in round two and won. Cote like silva trains full time and has a game plan when he fights, anything is possible .. Cote's game could of been to take silva near the distance, then land his big right. Silva is human and has been beaten before, remember that guys !!!!

Lol why can't people just admit it when someone from where they live isn't "world class"? He beat Almeida in a close boring fight, Kendal Grove(wow), and Drew Mcfedries(who doesn't beat him), he got the fight because there wasn't anyone else who hadn't fought Silva recently. Didn't damage him? So because you can take a punch means your not taking damage? Watch the Sefo Hunt fight, Sefo didn't damage him, watch either of the Cro Cop Hunt fights, Cro Cop didn't damage him. Lol What equals damage?

every time he threw he landed. i still don't understand why he danced, cote has power but not as much as hendo or franklin. and cote is a b level fighter, get off his nuts.

If I wouldve said the things ive read on this thread about another american or hey let's say any fighter i probably wouldve received a warning or be banned.

on that note

COTE FTW!!!

Because cote took silva further than any other fighter has, does that make cote world class.. I dont know. Does it make Cote appeal as a tougher test than the fallen victims to anderson in his current reign, Yes, IMO it does. No one gets an easy route to a title shot unless you are chuck liddell or brock lesnar !!! Cote beat some tough guys to get his shot. Cote is a gamer, i dont see a rematch happening because i think silva will retire or permanently move up a class by the time cote is ready to go again.

Then Ryo Chonana is a tougher test to anderson then Hendo, franklin, or Nate?

He only lasted that long because Silva let him stay that long. I bet when they fight again it will be over first round

I know that your lover Crocop is no longer able to win anything other than 2$ at the lottery and you are sad about it but you should take a real look at Cote's fights before calling the shot on his world class category !!
Do you still watching the UFC ?? Or you are dreaming about Kimbo's return !! lol

Cote is an A class fighter, something like 3 class higher than your idol Crocop who is probably down to D- !!

WAR Cote !!!

The fact that your allowed to post is baffling, and the fact that you resort to attacking fighters that have nothing to do with the conversation shows you have no valid points to make, so why post?

You see an attack everywhere my friend, i am talking to you not to Crocop, i use Crocop to show you what it is to see a guy posting that a fighter that you like is a B level fighter when it is totally false.
Cote is 2nd best fighter in Canada being GSP, i agree that he is not close to GSP but 2nd anyways.

Cote is Top 3 UFC MW ranking, and last time i check the UFC where still the top organization in the world with the overwhelming majority of top fighters, so every time Cote fought in the octogon it was not against pure can like we know happen very often in other organization.

He deserved his fight against Silva and according to what we say he would have lost a decision without any trouble, and against all odds, if his knee would have not blew.

We'll never know if cote could have scored that KO, but I'll say this, if given another chance i see it happening. Silva was a total ass in that fight, he looked like crap and fought a terrible fight. I hope his next fight he does a lot better then that because if he doesn't he'll be sleeping with the fishes....See

There, fixed it for ya

But seriously, Anderson was so pissed after this performance that if he faced Cote again, he would destroy him. Dana said that he was so mad that he wanted to fight at 91. I feel sorry for his next opponent.

ponder this for a second, anderson set up that injury with that front kick to the knee earlier in the fight.....yes thats possible to do

your disregarding the skills of the spider, so what if he dances around and uses feints, thats part of the game buddy

i suggest you consider not talking smack about a living legend and p4p great

I was gonna stoop low and give you a sherdog-style flaming...

But then I saw your from Canada, which KINDA explains the Favortism towards Cote...I still think you are too generous with your praise of him, but hell, I have an Anderson Silva avatar, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

To each their own I guess

I don't get it...there's tons of american fighters I dislike, and my 3 favorite fighters aren't from the US...Don't get me wrong, I have alot of american fighters I like too, but I don't heap praise onto a fighter just because he's american...

Oh well...I guess canadians are different..

He is a B level fighter and he hardly even beat Almeida, i don't think he deserved that decision much less his title shot. i think it was obvious that anderson was toying with him. He could have put him away at any time. It was a waste of a fight and the thought of a rematch makes me cringe. The guys isn't very good and anderson is the best

Although technically Denis Kang was born in France, he was raised in Canada since he was 11. I think he's the #2 Canadian, and he's going to show the US what we've been missing at UFC 93.

let call a spade a spade here. cote got a title shot becuase there was nobody there to challenge silva that hadn't recently been beat by him. a win against a couple of mid carders at best and almeida (who only recently had made his eturn) by no means in a real ranking sytem would earn you a shot at the champ. i am by no means a belive in the old saying "to be the champ you have to beat the champ" but the fact of the matter is cote had to beat silva of he wanted the belt. all silva had to do to keep it was do what he did..engage ascore some points and back out. i'm not saying cote is a chud but if you don't beat a top 5er when you are not top 5 you shouldn't be fighting the champ. but he had his shot...and clearly cote is a good striker and silva is clearly no dummy. anyone can be ko'd on any given day so i'm sure silva chose to respect cotes strike ability rather than stand in there and risk getting ko'd. as far as cote lasting longer than anyone else so he is now all of a sudden the best fighter silva has faced....come on now...didn't lutter actually get a take down? and according to the pros...din't hendo win rd 1? cote lost both rds without question. it lasted as long as it did because silva dansed around and made it go to the 3rd. if cote hadn't gotten hurt it would have gone to the 4th or even the 5th if the champ wanted it to. and anyone who thinks it was cote who carried the fight that long and wanted it to go to the later rds so he can knock silva out is insane or the biggest homer fan of all time. just wondering..does anybody even know who cote beat to win his TKO MW belt? and how he ended up in a title match? he beat 3 bums and Loiseau vacated the title to fight in the ufc. Cote wasn't even in the title contention picture at the time Loiseau left. so ppleae..let back off the whole cote is god bul crap. anyways...back to cote carrying the fight...nobody would take that chance if they had the opportunity to end it earlier. especially not if cote was gonna continue to engage or try to engage the way he did. if anyone was trying to drag it to the later rds and go for the ko it was silva...equally stupid plan. cote had a shot it's over. if the ufc wants to give him another...hopefully he'll have to fight and beat at worst case...whoever is #3 if not #2.

12/9/08 4:54:57AM
the ufc doesn't even have a ranking system so it hard to say who ranks where definitively. but lets be honest here for a second...not knowing if ace and hendo are gonna sta at 205 or come back to 185...and takinginto consdieration that cote was a kinda last minute replacement for okami who was nex tin line according to dana and crew but got hurt. where does cote really place....

1 Silva
2-3 Franklin
3-2 Henderson
4 Okami (you don't lose ranking point due to injury unless there is more money to be made with another matchup)
5 -6 Marquardt
6-5 Leites

7 ?? Maia 10-0 (4 win streak..Quarry, McD, Herman, Jensen ...didn't 4 get cote a shot at the title? Maia's 4 are in the same boat as cotes'...scott smith, grove, mcfedries and almeida)

and there's ....Palhares 17-1....Bisping (getting a push) 18-1....

oh yeah and now we have...kang, filho and lawlor

with all these guy in the mix. and considering their records and the opponents these guy have all faced and beat compared to the guys cote has beat and some of the guys he's lost to....is he really top 3-5?? i all honestly don't think so. and i'm canadian, from quebec, living less than an hour from where cote does alot of his training so no...i'm not a canadian hater.

with a REAL ranking system i think he's maybe 9 or 10.

In my opinion I think Cote got alot more respect from Silva then most of the guys here give him

if he is a B level fighter he is a damn good one, I didn't see Silva hurrying into big exchanges with Cote, and why would Cote chase a striker as great as Silva..

Silva didn't attack like he normally does in round 2 because Cote hits hard and can take a hard shot as seen, these are the same knees and punches that ended the fight countless times before.

was Silva waiting for the later rounds to really engage I believe that was the plan.. why ?? maybe because Silva was concerned about the power of Cote in the early rounds and wanted to stack the deck in his favor

and Yes I am Canadian and no I am not a Cote nut hugger

I think the real fire works of that fight were coming in round 4 and 5 it is a shame we never got to see them as people would be talking different about that fight

I really like Patrick, I like his confidence and his style. I also like how hes constantly improving and getting smarter with every fight. Who cares that his win over Ricardo was "close"? Everybody was saying he didnt stand a chance and he proved most people wrong. Ricardos a top fighter man, dont expect many people to beat him and for it not to be close.

The way i see it, Andersons on another level to Cote, but thats fine becouse hes on another level to everybody in the MW division. At the end of the day though, cote has the best chin in MMA not including Hunt. Im sure Anderson hit him with 2 of his best shots in that fight, i mean you could see when he was throwing them he put everything into them, and Cote hardly even responded to it. If he can take Anderson all 5 rounds, mabeys he'll land that one huge punch and put Anderson away. I cant see it, becouse the spider also has an absolute granite chin. But you never know.

I think cotes gotta say shit like this, to keep interest in the rematch and make sure he doesnt fall right back down the ladder while hes recovering. Imo he deserves another pop.

I think Cote can do it. Silva brought the bar up a little higher...now the fighters are catching up.
Cote can do it....as can a few others....Silva will go down soon enough.
