Ed Soares: "Anderson felt like he broke him"

Ed Soares talks about Anderson Silva's fight with Patrick Cote.

Quote:
On Anderson Silva's performance...

"I could tell you that if Patrick Coteís knee wouldnít have went out in the 3rd round, we wouldnít even be talking about this. The gameplan was to feel him out. Everyone knows that Cote has heavy hands; even we knew that. Heís got heavy hands so Anderson wasnít going to go in there and get into an exchange and try to land first. Hey, Patrick Cote has heavy hands and he could take a good shot. I donít think there is too many fighters out there that would have been able to take the shots that Patrick took from Anderson Silva and keep coming."

"Anderson felt like he broke him at the end of the 2nd round when he had him in the clinch kneeing him to the ribs. He walked into the 3rd round telling his coaches, ďI got him now. I broke him!Ē He was planning on finishing the fight in the 3rd round; thatís what they trained for. They trained to feel him out for a round or two and try to take advantage of any opportunity. Patrick Cote was pretty good at not creating any opportunity for Anderson to capitalize on so Anderson started to enforce his game."

"Heís had such dominant performances that people just think he should just walk through people and if he doesnít finish them in the first or second round, then they say what they want to say. You canít control the media."

On Silva's future plans...

"Anderson still wants to fight the best. I like Patrick Cote as a person. Heís a good dude and I like him, but him being a good person has nothing to do with...I just want to see him fight the best. Iíll just leave it as that."

His thoughts on EliteXC going out of business...

"I was sad. I was bummed out, but nothing seems to surprise me anymore. You canít really hold your breath with anything now, especially with the country being the way it is with the economy and all of these different people. I sit there and Iím still a little bamboozled how Pro Elite went through 55 million dollars in 18 months. How do you go 55 million dollars in debt in a time where MMA is accepted?"

"Iím upset that the organization went out of business. Itís a shame for all of the fighters out there and itís a shame for managers because thatís just less options that we have, but maybe some of these organizations will pay closer attention to what the UFC is doing because they're obviously running their ship pretty tight."

I doubt Anderson broke Cote. I believe Silva would have won anyways but Cote isn't the type to get broken like that. He's a mentally strong fighter and Silva would have to break him the old fashioned way.

Well clearly your insight is more accurate than someone who was in the cage with him...oh wait...

Please, regardless of what some may have heard, not everyone is afraid of Anderson Silva.
