Are you suggesting that a win over Belcher is going to get Cote a title shot? Hes gotta beat some of the big boys before he gets anywhere near a title shot.

Who else do you give the title shot to? The only other fighters I can think of would be Yushin Okami, Thales Leites, or possibly Evan Tanner. Leites hasn't fought top competition and Tanner would have only one fight in. That pretty much means Cote or Okami.

If Cote knocks Belcher out and wins his next fight, im pretty sure hes gonna get a title shot.

I think Cote has 2 more wins he needs to get before a title shot.

1 over Belcher
1 over a big name ,Okami, Franklin, Marquardt, Leben, Herman, even Almeida...

then he gets a shot.

Belcher might just put him on his back the whole fight...

looks like hes the underdog, good bet with 4-1 odds

Whoa! Easy on the title shot comments. Patrick Cote still has awhile before he gets a shot. In my opinion the guys got to beat a Rich Franklin or Nathan Marquardt. Until then he's not getting a title shot. As a matter of fact I think Alan Belcher will give Cote all he can handle, and I might go with Belcher when I pick the fight.

I agree with you except for the part in which Leben is a big name.
He beat Martin and will probably beat Leg but no way is he near the top. A loss to Starnes is what hurts him most I think but his win over Martin was impressive though he was lossing the fight be4 the knock out.

Cote is being built as something big which im happy for him but can you imagine what Dan Henderson would do to Cote???? wow. Its scary if Cote wanted to stand with him.

Cote will prolly win but Belcher is no joke so it could be closer then many think.
