Hahahaha. As much as I find begging disgusting, I do think him vs Struve, Pat Barry or Matt Mitrione could be some interesting match ups. Particular vs Struve. I'd like to see how Sylvia deals with being the shorter fighter.

It honestly couldnt hurt. But I say dont give him ANY cans at all, give him a contender like Overeem or Velasquez and see how quickly they shut him up. I'll never forget when an old man in Randy Couture who weighed 40 pounds less than him dominated him for 5 rounds straight.

That is in my top 5 fights in the UFC. Not necessarily for the skill set of either fighter(Randy was good and all but the evolution of the sport has far surpassed him), but for the vindication Randy gave me as a fan for beating on that goof for 5 rounds. He literally vindicated all the time I had wasted watching boring Sylvia fights.

That said, he is 3-0 since then and has remained the French commentator through it all.

Cote ****ed himself over when he grabbed the cage to get out of that submission.

Had he just got subbed, he'd probably still been with the UFC after the Lawlor fight but the guy out and out cheated, got away with it and still ended up losing a one sided fight.

I don't see why Cote should be bitter, the guy lost seven UFC fights I think you can count on one hand the amount of fighters who have lost more than that.

I dont see how anyone has a reason to be bitter.

There is a legit reason neither are fighting for the UFC.
