Cote earned a title shot?
On his return to the UFC he
- Lost the Ultimate Fighter finale in humiliating fashion
- Beat Jason Day who is no longer in the UFC
- Beat Kendall Grove who is a welterweight no longer in the UFC
- Beat Ricardo Almedia who was one fight removed coming off a 4 year layoff.
You forgot Scott Smith and Drew McFedries which put his win streak at five. Yep the same Scott who beat Cung, but also lost to Cung in their rematch. At the time who else was there. Hard hitting MW who was the MFC champ and had a solid chin. Why not match em against Anderson. Anyways...TOXIC...you want to take over here.
If Cung beats one or two more top tiered fighters then he could get his opportunity as well and I've been a fan since his San Shou days BEFORE he got into Strikeforce or even in MMA.
