thanks for this, TS. I hadn't really heard much from Cote after his fight with Anderson. Better late than never!

Thing is, in the Cote fight, I honestly think Silva got rocked early and that's why he started the Lambada-ing, or whatever. Cote has significant power, I can't really remember cuz it's been forever since I've seen that fight, but I have vague memories of Silva getting clipped in an exchange. I don't mean that Silva's legs gave out or anything, but his eyes were opened to taking a punch, something he had little experience with in the UFC prior to that fight.

Anyways, he is absolutely right though. Silva's movement is the single biggest advantage he has over anyone he fights. He speed, his footwork, his head movement, his precision, his timing, his everything is masterful.

Now onto Weidmann. For starters, talking is all he has done that makes anyone think he's the number 1 contender. His only impressive win is over Munoz. A sub-par conditioned, IMO overrated Mark Munoz. His win over Maia was..., disputable, at best. And Maia, despite his amazing ground game, has never been much of a threat in MW, simply because he's always been undersized and is lost if he can't take someone down. Neither Maia, nor Munoz were legit contenders at MW, imo. And Weidmann has only looked impressive 1 time against only arguably top 5 contenders. Hell, Boetsch isn't a top contender, so a win over him doesn't get him any closer to a title shot. If, or after, he beats Boetsch, he should fight Pissping or Belcher in a number 1 contender fight.

I really doubt Silva was rocked or hurt, Cote got one decent shot that kinda clipped him on the exit but it didn't appear to have much effect. It was simply a matter of what Cote said here, he stuck to his game plan despite Anderson playing head games. If you watch Anderson fight he does things that seemingly demand a response and then Anderson uses that response of his opponent against him. Cote never took the bait which is why many felt nothing was happening. Cote was in a way forcing Anderson to lead the dance if you will so that he could react to Anderson's attacks rather than Anderson reacting to his which is the norm.

That fight was fairly good it doesn't deserve the hate it gets. It was really only slow for the first round and most Silva fights are like that.

You're probably right. I haven't seen the fight in a long time. But..., I have vague, possibly false, memories of him getting clipped. Not saying he was rocked or anything, but..., it seems like Silva was doing what he does and dominating with his combos, then after 1 exchange, he seemed hesitant and simply avoided Cote. Again, my memory sucks so... I'm probably completely wrong, but his movement in that fight seemed less like his normal slip and rip (Griffin, Okami, anybody that's stood with him for any extended period of time), and more like his dancing to avoid his opponents strengths (Maia and Leites rounds 3 thru 5).

JORGE RIVERA: ANDERSON SILVA STRONGER THAN HE LOOKS, WINKED WHEN HIT

Roughly a year before Anderson Silva began his remarkable run in the UFC, Jorge Rivera fought him at Cage Rage 11 in London.

Rivera was stopped in the second round, but he did gain the experience of having stepped into the cage with the sport’s pound-for-pound best. In a recent interview with the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Rewind” show, Rivera discussed that fight, what makes Silva great and much more.

On fighting Silva: “It was a long eight, nine minutes. The first thing that comes to mind is he was very accurate with his punches and he could take a good punch. I felt like he was extremely technical. Like he could pick apart the fight whenever he wanted to -- that’s what I felt like, that [he was] very in control of everything.”

On whether he believed Silva was one of the best after fighting him: “I knew that, but I felt like we knew that going into that fight. There were rumors about him over at Chute Boxe, having wars with Wanderlei [Silva] and coming out on top. I was already worried about how good he was. I would watch him in Pride, and the one thing that stuck in my mind the most was his knee against Carlos Newton. I was a big Carlos Newton fan, and he ran through Carlos Newton in that fight as well. I knew he was very good. I knew that we hadn’t seen just how good he was yet.”

On being in the clinch with Silva: “The first thing that came to my mind when I locked up with him was his strength. He doesn’t look nearly as strong as he is. He’s very, very strong. He’s a genius. He knows how to find good leverage. He has a way of making you feel every 185 pounds of him in there. You’re going to feel his body weight.”

On Silva’s ability to dodge and absorb punches: “Maybe it’s the ability to read the body well, and it’s also his ability to take a good punch. He’s got a good-size head. He’s got a good, strong neck. He can take a good punch, but it may just be his natural God-given ability to read the human body well, to understand how it’s all connected and to be able to, with the eye, dissect it and know when it’s coming just by reading the shoulders and the hips and everything else.”

On Silva dropping his hands and playing with opponents: “For me personally, that’s psychologically just demoralizing. You start to second-guess yourself. You’re looking at the guy and you’re wondering, what does he have? What does he know that’s allowing him to do this? What’s he going to come at me with? Every single move that you have, you’re wondering whether it’s going to be the right move, and then if you get caught, it compounds the situation. It makes it even worse. Now not only are you second-guessing yourself, you’re paying for it. It’s a tough, tough situation.”

On actually hitting Silva: “I hit him with four right hands. They were grazing his left arm, but I gave him four pretty good shots to the face. The guy turned around and winked at me. Turned around and winked at me, literally winked at me.”

Full radio interview.

If you get a chance listen to the whole radio interview. It's pretty long, just tune in while doing work and you'll hear Patrick and Jorge talk in detail about the man.

I want to hear what James Irvin has to say. The only comment I remember him saying was that, "he's a scary dude."

Lee Murray said his high kicks were the most powerful he'd felt.
