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.
