Well Cote said he was about to pick up the pace in the third which means the knock out would have come hat round. A. Silva doesnt chase people with knock out power. He didn't chase the Dan or the "Sandman". He waited for them to be aggresive and then he counters and when you are on your heals he attacks. He is only the aggressor when he is not facing people with 1 punch knock out power. The reason he was playing around, I feel, was to bait Cote into exchanging so he could counter. People seem to forget that Cote was very cautious too, he didn't go in to knock Anderson out, which is the best plan agianst Silva. He won't knock you out if you wait for him to come to you but you still wont out strike him. Cote would have had to do what he did in the first two rounds for the rest of the fight and maybe he would have gone the distance and lost a decision. Cote wouldnt b able to beat Silva playing it as safe as he did, all he did was get outscored with some pretty tought shots.
