Again this will be the case unless the champ falls down, hits his head, and knocks himself out. This is all depending on Cote winning his fight. It would be in his best interest to lose this fight and not go on to fight for the Title. The reason for this I belive is this. Cote is still young. He is going to become a better fighter in time. I do not believe it it is his time to fight foor a Title.
Who has the best chance fighting for the Title.
He can go back to Canada for long term treatment at no cost. One advantage of being a Canadian fighter.
He still has to win the show, though. It's not a done deal.
