Cote speaking to the Edmonton Sun:
"We know how to beat Anderson Silva. The only way to beat him is to push the pace. Go forward all the time…. You can’t let him get confident and comfortable in the centre of the Octagon. You have to push the pace for five minutes every round. If I do that, I can catch him. I’ll take care of him."
I'm pretty sure that I watched Chris Leben use the same tactic and got KTFO in just under a minute. Now I understand hyping the fight and all, but James Irvin pretty much said the same shit before Silva's last fight and we know how that turned out. Just a couple of notes...Leben has a much better chin than Cote, and Anderson Silva has never been knocked out...do the math.
