Cote's best shot is not "moving forward". Andersons stand-up is levels ahead of Cotes, including his defense. If Patty "moves forward" it's going to end quickly, maybe more quickly then Silva/Leben.
His best shot is some how, some way cut Silva off and press him against the cage and use his cute little foot stomps for 25 minutes. That said, he'll then have to hope for a miracle that Silva doesn't over power him and unleash Muay Tai fury on his arrogant ass while inside the clinch, which would happen. Like I said, hope for a miracle.
Bring on Maia, someone that DOES have tools to beat Silva.
You're just a cook...
