“I want a big fight right away, with a good style for me,” he told MMAWeekly.com. “I don’t want to fight a guy like Ricardo Almeida for my comeback fight. For sure it’s going to be a boring fight. The style is just like that. I can beat the grappler, no problem, but for my comeback, I’m looking more for a fight like Wanderlei Silva, or Rich Franklin if he goes to 185, or I want to fight Michael Bisping.”

He's gonna need a few wins to prove he belongs in there against Anderson again. I mean look at what they've made Marquardt and Hendo go thru only to give the shot to Belfort, lol.

Cote needs at least 2 solid wins in a row to be considered against Anderson again. I could see them setting up Cote vs. Kang, Kang is a big name that Cote is capable of beating...and another loss for Kang could get him cut so I think it would be a good fight.

So basically he wants to fight a striker. No problem, although Anderson/Franklin/Bisping etc. against Cote is a hard fight to promote for/or a fight that probably would not have much buzz around it. Having said that, I think a fight with Alessio Sakara is right up his alley

Glad to hear that Cote isnt shying away and wants big fights right off the bat. Shows he has confidence. I think a fight with Wandy would be a good starting point.

By the time Cote gets back to the title, if he does. Anderson will be retired.

Cote vs Akiyama or Sakara.

Is just me or does he come off really bad in this interview. He almost sounds like I don't want to fight guys that can sub me or out wrestle me.
