'No contest' and 'win' are mutually exclusive. 'Technical knock out' means the referee determined the other fighter couldn't continue. Where's the problem with the call?

I'm gonna get tired of explaining this but, Cote was unable to continue the fight therefore Anderson gets declared the winner. The injury was not due to an accidental illegal strike which would have caused the fight to be ruled a NC nor did the injury occur on an illegal strike which would of resulted in a DQ.

A ref can stop a fight and declare a winner if a fighter appears to have developed significant injuries in the referee's view, such as a broken bone.

That was an entertaining fight! And one of the strangest MMA fights I've seen in years. Some of the oddities:

1. Silva stares into space with his eyes closed at the start of the fight.

2. at the beginning of the second round, Silva again, seems spaced out, unfocused, looking behind and around him, instead of straight ahead. Herb Dean calls out to him repeatedly to begin fighting.

3. was Silva channeling Michael Jackson? Or, the Temptations? I couldn't help but laugh throughout.


Silva is clearly bored. But, he is not human. Neo-like. Please find Anderson Silva some real competition. Like Fedor. Or Lesnar. That's all.

That was an entertaining match. It was a different kind of match up. Anderson showed his phenomenal foot work and defense. Watched the replay several times now. Cote couldn't get him except for the couple of elbows while he was on the ground. Silva was able to dodge em like the "matrix." I dunno if people see it, but Silva was setting up the entire match. He laid so many bait and traps for Cote, but most he didn't fall for. The shit that he does confuses 99% of his opponents.

It could have very well been over in the first round for most fighters after the kick and knee to the head. The rest of the fight Silva was essentially playing mind games which is pretty awesome; helping hand, "Wing Chun" motion, Capoeria foot work then launches an attack out of nowhere with the lead left clocking Cote, letting his guard down etc. Basically he showed that Cote couldn't touch him. Third round Silva was in strike mode and ready to take him out. It's too bad...we may never know.

The Spencer Fisher fight was really good. I love Fisher. He really is a great fighter.

Did anyone see the Franca/Aurelio fight? Beautiful leg kick onsalught from Hermes.

It sucks how only the main card gets attention.

Damn, I still haven't seen that Spencer Fisher fight. And what a letdown, finally seeing Silva in a good fight and Cote unfortunately gets hurt.

silva carried cote

I find it funny that patrick couldnt do much and that silva danced, it seems obvious that they where not in the same league.

Patrick did say he felt his knee go out in the second round but tried to come out, he also made it a point of holding up three fingers to show the crowd that he did it, So now he is only fighter to go 3 rounds. Maybe the UFC can find some one to actually fight with Silva.

Who would that fighter be

Good question. Silva is at the top of his game right now, I can't even imagine anybody beating this guy.

Cool

Silva could have ended that fight in the first round if he wanted to. He clearly felt sorry for him and wanted to give fans a show. He did! It sucks that Cote had to get hurt but there's no way that if the fight would have kept going, he would have won. I'm sorry but he doesn't compare to Silva in any way, shape or form! Silva is a great fighter! He gave Cote a little confidence (what with Cote saying he's the first to take Silva to the 3rd round).. that was cute. lol
