Not really! Not when Anderson has 5 more fights left on his contract. Since half of those fights will be in LHW that leaves at least 2 more fights in MW division. One will probably go to Okami (if he beats Dean Lister) and possibly Robbie Lawler (if the UFC can acquire him).
Also, since Patrick Cote will be coming off an injury the UFC will probably be cautious of giving him a title shot. He could comeback looking like Frank Mir( when he came back from his injury).
Not only that Silva vs. Cote 1 was not that interesting. All people will remember from that fight is Anderson Silva thinking he was on an episode of "Do You Think You Can Dance" and Patrick Cote not mounting much of an offense. So I really can't see too many people spending $40.00 for it.
As for Fitch, he'll probably have two maybe three victories in during the time Cote is gone. So I think it will be more likely he'll get a title shot before Cote.
