UFC 90 weigh-in results

Weigh-ins for UFC 90 took place on Friday at 4pm CT at the Chicago Theater in Chicago, Illionois.  All of the fighters made weight although there was a slight scare with Josh Burkman when he weighed in three pounds over the  170 lb. welterweight limit.

Burkman who seemed very surprised at his weight came back an hour later and made 171 lbs.  Non-title fights allow for a one pound discrepancy if a participant is over the limit.

Main Event – UFC Middleweight Title
Patrick Cote (183) VS Anderson Silva (184)

Sanchez out – Koscheck vs. Alves at UFC 90

by:  Jack Bratcher

The last time we saw Diego Sanchez in the cage was back in June when he faced Luigi Fioravanti at the TUF 7 Finale. We saw in that fight continued proof that the “old” Diego was back. Sanchez fans became somewhat concerned after his lackluster performance against Josh Koscheck at UFC 69 and then again when he lost to Jon Fitch at UFC 76. Up until those fights, the pride of Albuquerque had not known defeat in his professional MMA career.

Both of Diego’s losses came in 2007; his only two fights that year. Maybe it had something to do with how the planets were aligned because as soon as 2008 rolled around we saw Diego’s impressive first round victory over UFC newcomer, David Bielkheden and then another win three months later with his TKO over Fioravanti. By all appearances the Zen master had returned.

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.
