Cote has been off since his knee surgury and I am not sure he is coming back, he looked good against Belcher but has looked progressively worse in his UFC fights since then Sakara should have been an easy fight for him and the fact he eneded up in trouble doesn't reflect well.
Great post, completely agree.

I don't think Cote deserved to win this, but I certainly do think that Alessio deserved the loss and not a no contest.
It should be a no contest, you can't reward someone with a win because his opponent "deserved the loss", I'm convinced these decisions should be NC.

Sakkara was literally rocked less than 30 seconds earlier and likely was still shaking the cob webs. The call was the right one but people can't blame sakkkara because he likely didn't do it with malice but merely because he was in survival mode trying to finish and trying to clear his head all at once. I am usually pretty harsh on this stuff but when you consider the way the fight played out you need to realize that his head would have been far from screwed on right and add that to the fact the ref failed to react as well. The call had to made to maintain the standard but I think Sakkara deserves a little grace from the fans on this one.

It is pretty clear this should have been a disqualification. A no-contest would make no sense in this case.

The fouls caused the fight to be stopped. Cote was banged up pretty bad, probably concussed. No way he could continue.

When intentional fouls (he did the same thing over and over, that is not an accident like a kick in the groin) cause a fighter to be unable to continue, it is a DQ.

A no contest is only awarded if a fighter is unable to continue due to an accident (cut from a head butt is a good example).

If a no contest is awarded in this case it actually rewards Sakra and punishes Cote. Sakara does not get the loss on his record. Cote does not get his win bonus. So a no contest makes NO SENSE!

They were both badly rocked when the fouls occurred so I'd like to see a rematch to decide who should actually be fired.
