honestly, the biggest problem i had with cote, is that he was fighting to just survive and not to win. and this is coming from a guy who loves cote.

I don't understand all this talk on Cote not being proud, not doing well, not doing this and that, enough already.

Watch the fight again. Cote does very well in round 1 considering who he is fighting. If you actually watch the fight, Cote pushes on Silva quite a bit, throwing a few big bombs that miss and some leg kicks. Cote did a fantastic job fighting against Silva considering the difference in skill sets.

Should he be proud? Yes, aboslutely, he did well and made it to the third. Go ask Hendo or Franklin what it felt like when they got into the third with Silva.

Oh, wait.. nevermind.

in short, no.
Silva rarely striked and when he did he connected...
He probably trains with tougher opponents in Brazil

Making it into the 3rd with a passive aggresive opponent is nothing to be proud of. Wheres the accomplishment? You threw punches that didn't connect. Your opponent made a mockery of you by dancing about than when Silva did strike it was too easy.

Cote made it to the third round, unlike Silva's previous six UFC opponents, and let's not forget that while he technically lost that fight, Silva never really beat him. Also, during the two rounds he did take some hard knees/punches and wasn't even phased in the least, which is extremely impressive on its own.

Very good performance from Cote, who may not have won but definately opened up some eyes and showed a lot of heart and potential as a fighter.

I think this is more of a taint on Anderson's image than it is on Cote's. Silva was supposed to finish Cote in the first round. The fight wasn't supposed to go to the third. And people will always say that Silva never beat Cote.

A rematch would be great, but I've got a feeling that it won't happen. An injury like that can make a serious impact on someone's career. Hopefully he keeps his head up and takes rehab seriously.

I'll have to rewatch the fight but I got the impression that Anderson did not want to hang around in a slugfest for a prolonged amount of time. His bull rushes with 3-4 strikes seemed to be effective when he did them but he tended to bug out right after where he would usually go for the Thai Clinch and do some damage.

When you're fighting a guy with an aura like Anderson Silva you need to keep everything positive and keep all the distractions to a minimum. Whether its Anderson clowning around or the hot girl in the first row, Cote had to be thinking about getting Anderson to mix it up with him and hope for a knockdown or knockout.

Most people on here are too fickle for my liking but I guess I can be too. These guys come up with specific gameplans and the strong minded ones tend to stick to those plans. I think Cote was sticking to his gameplan to a T and should be proud of himself for sticking with it for 2 full rounds where guys like Dan Henderson, Rich Franklin, Nate Marquardt and more have miserably failed.
