I guess that will get rid of the rumored bout between Wanderlei Silva vs. Patrick Cote on the UFC on Fuel in Macau.

I really like this fight. Both solid strikers and longtime UFC fighters. I thought they had met before but apparently not... War Cote!!!

I wish the Wandy rumour never came out. Now I'm a little disappointed in a great fight.

WTF?????? They are my two favorite fighters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh man!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well at least my favorite fighter Cote is going to win this one. I see Sakara getting knocked out early in round 1. What a bummer.

There was a time when I would have considered this a laughable fight for Cote...nowadays maybe he is a slight favorite but it's basically a pick 'em.

Crazy the number of careers that have come and gone with Anderson Silva at the helm.

Anderson didn't really do anything to Cote at all. If anything caused his career to decline, it was sitting on the sidelines with an injury from the bud light logo.

This could very well be a loser leaves town match. Cote has only lost one fight since his return, but back to back losses in your redemption debut rarely bodes well.
On another note, I was rolling with my friend and my knee popped out so I had to stop. He asked if that meant he won (as a joke) so I told him yes, tko knee injury and that he did me like Silva did Cote.
