“Dear Tim Sylvia, shut the hell up, win fights and stop begging, it’s (expletive) annoying!”
~ Patrick Cote via Twitter.

Patrick Cote wants to get back to the UFC, and he’s made no bones about that in past interviews, but there’s one thing he wants to make clear: he’s not going to beg for the UFC to take him back via Twitter, Facebook, or any other social network.

Cote’s anger at the tactic erupted via his own Twitter account, but he promises it wasn’t necessarily targeted at Sylvia.

Cote was targeting any former UFC fighter that was going the social networking route as opposed to fighting to get back to the Octagon.

“Maybe that was a little bit out of control because that wasn’t a personal attack to Tim Sylvia, but that was just begging to have a chance to go back to the UFC, for me, it’s just a shame. You can’t beg the big organizations like that,” said Cote.

“You’ve been a champion in this organization; you know how things work. You’re not going to go anywhere by begging like that. I was just annoyed about begging, a lot of the begging, and I said loud what a lot of people was thinking. I have nothing against Sylvia. He’s been a great champion. He did a lot in the sport. He did a lot in the UFC. I hope he’s going to be back in the UFC. That’s not the point. The point was just about the begging thing.”

“The only thing you have to do is shut your mouth, win fights, and prove you deserve to be back in the big show by winning fights and by your performance,” Cote stated.

“It’s the only way to get back. You have to prove yourself again to deserve the chance to get back in the big show; that’s what I’m doing.”

Says the guy who carefully hand picks his opponents and calls Joe Silva for a job despite not being able to finish these "cans". Sorry Cote but you'll always be the guy that got "pedigreed" by Alan Belcher and couldn't win in his own backyard.

right because no one has ever lost in their backyard, especially after an 18 month layoff.

it makes literally no sense. He hasn't even fought at 265lbs since leaving except maybe once or twice. Putting together a weak sauce win streak against no-name fighters doesn't prove anything. Its silly too considering how weak higher weight classes tend to be, but you've gotta at least show you can walk into the cage at less than 300lbs and fight.

He talked to us about this two weeks ago

He's absolutely right, too.

Patrick has been my favorite fighter since UFC 50. I hope he beats Gustavo Machado and gets a few more wins so he can get back in the UFC. Patrick needs to work on his ground game some though if he wants to be very successful in the big show again. If Patrick can get his ground game together he will be a force to be reckoned with. WAR COTE!!!!!!

And? He's not begging, which is what he was complaining about.

The only live UFC event I've been fortunate enough to attend was UFC 102 in Portland, and I don't think a single fighter from the Northwest won on that card. Losing in your backyard isn't that uncommon.

It's honorable Cote has pride and would not beg to get back into the ufc but it's also dishonorable for him to lash out at fighters who are begging.

Begging is frowned upon in our society ( mainly western cultures ) but in other parts of the world, begging can be considered an act of humility. When you beg, you are literally surrendering yourself and asking for mercy - and that ...sometimes can be more respectable than not begging. I'm not saying Tim Sylvia's case is respectable; what I'm saying is - not all begging cases are shallow.

i see it like this... if u do what your supposed to do to begin with you wont have the need to beg. in this case its fighting and Cote is right if you win fights you'll get where you want to be. i hope Cote keeps winning, i would like to see him back in the UFC. i've always like watching him fight
