Cote you lost, dude. You basically did nothing except avoid being knocked out. You need to be happy your knee blew out because you were moments away from being brutally KO. If there is some satisfaction that you made it to the third round and Franklin, Hendo, Lutter, Nate and Irvin didn't, and this makes you feel better than them, well...then I guess more power to you.

You need to face the fact that all those guys, including and especially Silva, would beat you.

rounds mean nothing if you are losing the fight.

Should he be proud? Hell yes! Life gave him an opportunity to fight for the 185 UFC title and he walked in the cage and looked his opponent in the eye. Winning or losing he looked competent and was willing to fight; anyone who disrespects that should spend more time sparring and less time commenting on forums so they can calibrate their priorites a bit.

I guess he could be a bit proud but as I've said millions of times in the past few days, they both did jack shit and it was a boring fight that proved nothing.

Just like he was moments from being KO'd in the first and second round right.

Who knows maybe Anderson would decide to do more of his kalib starnes dance routine and run some more laps. Cote may have not done much to Silva but Silva wasnt exactly setting the world on fire with his performance and I am pretty sure the boos directed to the fight were more towards the performance Anderson Silva was giving than to Cote.

Cote gave all he could less im going to dive right in and throw wildly technique of Chris Leben. Cote was by far the aggressor although you cant really inflict much damage to someone not interested in fighting (see Kalib Starnes).

I wish my favourite fighter Dan Henderson came in with a more reserved approach and maybe then could have snuck out a decision against Silva but thats another topic.

Dont blame Cote for the performance of your god Anderson Silva. Cote did not get submitted or KO'd and aside from the fluke injury, nothing else you could ask from him so he should be happy with his performance.

Yeah, he should be proud.

Considering that he didnt play Silva's game.

Each fighter wants to dictate the pace and direction of the fight.

Silva loves it when a fighter squares up to him and moves forward... so he can slip and slide laterally and counter.

Cote didnt have any of that... and people might bitch and moan about it, but Franklin learned the hard way that it was the wrong way to approach Silva after getting his nose relocated to the back of his head....twice.

Silva was trying to force Cote to chase him so that he could catch him reaching in... and totally Leben his head...
...But Cote had none of it.

I give props to Cote for using his brains... coming up with an effective game plan and sticking with it...

He forced Silva out of his game plan... made Silva come to him instead.

Getting Silva into the 3rd was a big win mentally for Cote... its been unfamiliar territory for Anderson for so long... and thats where you want your opponent mentally.

So yeah... he should be proud.

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.
Exactly!!!

He threw quite a few punches but Silva kept him at bay, Anderson did not want to be engaged at close quarters for too long

I guess he should have credit for not getting Ko'd before that, but offensively, he didn't do much in rounds 1 and 2.

Had he mounted a serious attack like Hendo did, and then lasted till round 3, I would be impressed.

Cote was letting Anderson attack and he was answering him every time Silva came at him, his plan was simple he was gonna knock Silva the f*** out but he didnt want to attack, Anderson never attacks in any of his fights he waits for his opponent to attack but when Cote flips that around and plays that game on Silva its cause Cote had nothing, bullshit.

Im also sick of people saying it was set it stone and only a matter of time before Anderson knocked Cote out because, Cote can knock Silva out just as fast as Silva can knock out Cote, and personally I like Cote's odds.
