I agree Cote hasn't looked relevant in a long time, but that won't mean much if Voelker isn't very good himself. I need some information on this talent other than a quick fight record! Haha.
Cote should have dropped to 170 a long time ago. I'm curious to see how he performs at this weight class. Not expecting much considering how much he's disappointed in the past, but I'll try to remain optimistic. He seems to have made the weight cut easily at least. Another thing to look at is Voelker hasn't fought since July, 2011, and he only fought once in 2011. That's a long lay off in MMA.
the layoff is a concern but I have seen voelker look very good in strikeforce and finish roger bowling twice and bowlings only other loss was to tarec saffiedine by decision.
