Cote makes good assessment of Anderson Silva

Patrick Cote is the next person in line (many would call it a firing line) to fight Anderson “The Spider” Silva in the UFC middleweight division. Cote will be trying to take away Silva’s title in the Windy City on Oct. 25th.

Cote starts out this interview by saying, “I’ve never been rocked, I’ve never been knocked out in my life.” Yeah, well Kimbo Slice never had a black eye prior to Oct. 4th either. When it comes to facing the UFC Middleweight Champ, what you have or have not done in your past really makes not a difference in the world. It doesn’t matter if you’ve spent your whole life as a lion-tamer when you come face to face with a venomous King Cobra. It’s a completely different animal.

Having said that, Cote does seem to have a pretty accurate assessment of Silva’s skill level. He says, “His biggest strengths are everything. He’s the best fighter in the world.” Cote asks for the ultimate test when he declares, “I want to fight the best Anderson Silva possible.”  If nothing else, one must admire Cote for his ambition as he readies himself for the biggest fight of his life.
