Believe It Or Not, Patrick Cote Could Be The Favorite To Beat Anderson Silva

Now before you start getting mad at least hear me out. Everyone knows Anderson is a dangerous striker but his greatest weakness is his wrestling which just so happens to be Patrick "The Predator" Cote's biggest strength. In fact i'm gonna go out on a limb here and say he's an even better wrestler than Dan Henderson which i know a lot of people won't agree with.

You take that and also consider the fact that Anderson also has some weaknesses in his stand up (he doesnt utilize Kung Fu or Tae Kwon Do which are the 2 most underrated styles of fighting in MMA) which Cote is also very good at, and you have my reasons for why i'm betting 100K of my savings on Patrick Cote at UFC 90.

Not favorite but it is a mistake to rule Cote out most defiantly. A dangerous and strong fighter. I think Anderson takes it but Cote won't exactly be a walk in the park for him by any means.

That's right. It's my life savings over the past 3 years and at these odds i plan on getting 500K back. It's easy money when you really break the fight down and realize that Anderson doesnt have the tools to be Patrick.

If Cote is better than Hendo in wrestling, why isn't he didn't he go to Beijing this past summer? And since when did he ever use his wrestling to win fights? Last I saw, he was trying to throw that mallet around that he calls his right hand.

Can you name some top fighters that do utilize Kung Fu or Tae Kwon Do techniques in the octagon? I don't know about you, but if you see them, they leave you open to getting punched in the face a lot.

It's cool to have faith in Cote.. but don't risk 100 thousand dollars on faith of a fighter. That's.. just not smart.

I think Cote will do better then most people think. I think he can take him down, and I think he can control him once there.

BUT! I think he'll eat shots going in, take shots in Anderson's guard because I doubt he'll do better then that before getting reversed, and the ref will stand them up.

And there's always the chance that he'll rock him early, and if your rocked against Anderson, you're basically finished. I don't think Cote has the chin of Leben, and Leben was rocked with a straight from Anderson.

I predict a 1nd ref stoppage with Cote covering up towards the end of the round.

The same reason why Hendo wasnt there, because they're MMA fighters and they don't have time to train wrestling. I guess you must've missed the Almeida fight where he used his wrestling to neutrolize Ricardo's Jui Jitsu.

Machida and Gomi utilize Kung Fu and G.S.P as well as Frank Shamrock are seasoned Tae Kwon Do veterans.
