Wanderlei would tool Silva, Silva has never faced a striker that is stronger and faster than he is, who also has 20 pounds on him.
I think Cote will put up a great fight, and get the TKO/KO win in the 2nd. Many people are making this fight out to be much more mismatched than it is. Cote is a great counterpuncher with alot of power and has similar combos to Anderson, many straights and power punches.
Also, Cote tends to step to the side of strikes and use boxing techniques like the traditional punch slip, which none of Anderson's past opponents have used against him and instead have simply held their arms up to their head hoping that Anderson will not punch them. Bad idea. Cote will slip, dodge, and counter and drop Anderson with a hard right in the second, then finish him on the ground. IMO.
