Cote: “I F*cked Him Up Really Bad” (!)

Wow…the delusions you suffer when Anderson Silva allows you to reach round three. As you can see in this video from MMACanada, Patrick Cote has a rather inflated sense of his own toughness following Saturday night’s debacle. After explaining that his knee was actually toast by the end of the second round, the Predator launches into the money quote:

“I proved to everybody that this guy’s not unbeatable. I think I fucked him up really bad ['you fucked him up' and 'oh, big time' his friends shout, possibly sarcastically]. My gameplan was good and I think he was scared to exchange with me. I received all his best punch and all his best knee and I was still there.”

Well, that’s a matter of opinion. It’s still unclear what was going through Silva’s head during those first two rounds, but I wouldn’t assume that he was scared of Cote (who never gave Silva reason to be), and the small handful of bored strikes he threw certainly did not represent “his best punch and his best knee.” Far from it. What we saw at UFC 90 was Anderson Silva at his most ineffective. Though hey, maybe he was going to make something happen in the championship rounds. Cote would also like you to know that he didn’t fake the knee injury, and he thought it was a little bit rude when Silva offered his hand to help him during the fight. Okay? Now let’s all forget that this ever happened.

Dana White, it should be noted, was understandably disappointed with Silva’s performance, and didn’t think it had anything to do with fear of Cote.

As he told MMA Weekly:

“I’ve seen guys who get thrown out of their rhythm, or can’t find their range, or just can’t seem to get off, and maybe that’s what happened…Anderson Silva’s the nicest guy in the world — [but] he doesn’t help people up in the Octagon. He’s a killer when that bell rings…It was weird. Anderson Silva was in a different place tonight.”

White added this on ESPNRadio1100:

“What else am I supposed to believe? Am I supposed to believe that he came out to not throw one punch or not do anything for three rounds? I don’t believe that. All I know is I wanted to put my head through the table I was sitting at. You ever watch Star Trek? I wanted to transport myself back to Vegas in my bed.”

So what did you make of Silva’s bizarre performance? Was it a public protest at not being given tougher competition? A failed attempt to make the fight interesting by stretching it out? Or has success officially changed Anderson Silva from a humble killer to a disinterested, douchey show-off?

silva didnt know what to do. i think he was trying to frustrate cote and get him to rush in for a few shots and then counter but cote was being smart and standing back picking spots to take a few shots and was not getting frustrated, which may have in turn ended up frustrating silva. also cote took some heavy shots from silva and was still standing and did not seemed fazed one bit, usually when silva hits with these shots the challenger crumples to the ground and when cote did not maybe he was worried he would get caught and not be able to KO cote himself. as for the guy that says thiago alves is going to be the champ and sorry gsp its a done deal i must say did you not watch gsp's last fight where he completely dominated fitch. alves is a good young fighter but i believe gsp is more well rounded and will dominate that fight as well. remember fitch is the last fighter to beat alves and they have both improved since that fight but gsp has improved and he will dominate.

silva's a fag and was scared of cotes ko power thats why he was running like a bitch. he hit cote with 3 of his best shots and they did fuck all to cote mean while those same shots ko irvin, leben, and franklin. cote did he good he was trying to push the pace but silva was running like a bitch. also in the interview cote is fucking drunk as fuck and maybe even a bit high with some bc pot lol
plainandsimple- October 26, 2008 at 8:49 pm
silva was worried he'd get tagged with a lucky shot. it's the only logical answer, let's be honest no matter how good your tech is how, fast you maybe eventually youre going to get cracked and crumble. cote took shots that would have dropped Anyone else he took a full force kick to the grill and was still out there.and i'm not a fan of cote at all i think he's a douche. he was standing the whole time with him trading and silva back peddled the whole time distracting us with his flashyness to disguise from all his confusion with cote.

@ PotatoHead

Hey how cool was it that I just posted as your name? I love fanticizing about being another man who slurps on my 2.5" member.

There is something that turns my flacid foreskin into a raging Twizzler straw when I think of the warm touch of a man, and the creamy texture of human microbia on my lips.

The closest thing I have ever experienced is when I tied a human scrotum from a cadaver onto my barbell, and everytime I bench pressed my 9,000lbs it would T-bag me. The downright stench of morbidly decomposed human genitalia combined with 3 week old duckbutter turns me on.

I am off to work where I embalm dead cadavers, and vicously rape the underaged pregnant ones.
PotatoHead- October 26, 2008 at 7:33 pm
@ KG,
you wanna meet up sometime? I think we would be a perfect fit, we can slurpee each other and pretend it's TUF Guy... yesszz? Let me knooo xoxo

@ PotatoHead,

super-gay.
PotatoHead- October 26, 2008 at 4:33 pm
Ahhh, what the heck... I might as well add my 2-cents:

Hey, TUF Guy, "Tae-Bo" is not considered a true martial art. If you're as tough as you say... I need a guy like you to spot me while I bounce 12 reps w/475, off my Herculean 52" chest... and if you're not too much of a pain in my 21" neck, I'll let you feel my 22" guns. Puto.
MJS- October 26, 2008 at 4:19 pm
Silva will lose sooner rather then later. When your ego starts to outweigh your talent...your in trouble. Hughes, Liddel, Jackson...they all fell not because they werent great anymore...they fell because they were more interested in the money...or the chicks...or the after parties.

And Cote is a drunken retard. Talking shit(or should I say slurring) after your weak ass knee gave out during the fight of a lifetime. Jerkoff! I hate French Canadians anyway!

I think TUF Guy is Phil Baroni.

GSP will destroy BJ Penn and anyone who thinks that Penn is the only one who has improved has not watched GSP fight/own lately. Penn gained a little cardio, in 155 mind you, while GSP went to a whole new level.

Silva was drawing it out to give the people their money's worth. Cote had 1 too many before that interview, but showed that he can take a shot or two during the "fight".
TUF Guy- October 26, 2008 at 3:59 pm
I remember a time when even you keyboard warriors used to be funny. Anyways, you guys are the probably the guys who said they'll meet me at the event. PATHETIC. So keep beating your keyboard monkeys and keep entertaining me. I gotta give you guys props though, because only 80% of the responses include homoerotica... you guys are growing up
KG- October 26, 2008 at 3:59 pm
TUF Guy- werent you the 125lb guy with the massive nose and tribal armband sitting with your mom and your girlfriend (your mom's daughter from another marriage)? I did come up to your row, but immediately was discussed by the smell of hot trash and latex.

Were you seriously wearing a plain white Hanes T-Shirt with the ironed on letters "Afliction" ? I know your cheap, but if you are going to make an Affliction knock off shirt, at least spell it right.

It pisses me off when people post shit on this site like they have soooo much knowledge of the MMA game, and it's obvious that they don't. Furthermore, there should be someone (from this site......BEN) that lets these stupid mutha fuckas know that what they're saying it WRONG. Examples: (C=comments R=response)
1C. "Silva wanted to end the fight as he always does at the last rounds."
1R. Saturday was Silvas first time in the 3rd round in the UFC dumbass.
2C. "Second, the show boating he did with moving and his hands around was something we haven’t seen him do before."
2R. He did it with Rich Franklin, and in fights before the UFC fuckstick.
3C. "Silva was visibly bored and was really trying to draw some attention to the fight. Cote would not engage him. Cote may have a tough chin, but Silva didn’t throw his best by any stretch of the imagination."
3R. What fight was this fag watching????
4C. " Please NO REMATCH… 1 of 2 things will happen… He’ll be bored and do the same shit, or he’ll go off and murder him in 10 seconds like he did James Irvin. The latter is the most exciting but I kind of want to see somebody challenge him. Bisping and then some super fights and let him go."
4R. Bisping..............against Silva. ANYONE, does this pole smuggler sound anything like a true MMA fan??????
5C. "I have proven that you guys are ALL keyboard warriors. I made my point. I am greater than anyone on here point blank period!"
5R. Ok, so you can beat us all up. How does that make you greater than us? Also, why aren't you fighting in an organization somewhere Tuffy Tuffington, is it because you yourself would be considered a keyboard warrior to a real fighter. That's not what "The Arts" is about asshole!!!!
6C. "Silva was high or something. Looked completly retarded out there. He didn’t do ANYTHING besides one knee strike which didn’t phase Cote at all. Cote would have won if his knee didn’t give out."
6R. (Posted by same asshole as comment #5) This proves my point about some of the stupid MF's that post here.
7C. "Silva sucks.
He’s had some good knock out against chump opponents, but all in all, he’s nothing special. I could be the pound for pound best fighter in the world if you served me up washed up fighter after noob fighter for two years."
7R. Do I even have to say anything about this one. No MMA knowledge what-so-ever!!!
8C. "I THINK THAT IT SHOWED HE WAS SCARED TO EXCHANGE…REMATCH…"
8R. Idiot..........

Will the real MMA fans please stand up and get my back against these fuckin posers.
lickmyfart- October 26, 2008 at 3:35 pm
Nobody else notices that Cote is drunk off his ass during this interview?? Too much wine frenchy? I would also drink heavily after that kind of bad luck.
Anonymous- October 26, 2008 at 3:23 pm
so being a pure counter-striker, which is what anderson is, i.e. he refuses to throw a punch until one is thrown at him. Is being more of a "man" than Cote was. Some fucked up logic there. Cote, while I don't believe he had a snowball's chance in hell of winning, was nonetheless fighting silva just as he needs to be fought, just out of arms reach, just as silva himself fights. At any rate, silva should stop being a wuss and fight at his real weight class (at least 205). Imagine Kendall Grove with skill and muscles, it's just not fair against midgets like Rich Franklin.
Jeepman- October 26, 2008 at 3:20 pm
TUF Guy isn't a 'tough guy' and he knows it......

he's an arrogant,little man that talks s**t in the cyber world because he knows he can...he is the true 'keyboard warrior'...being anonymous gives the lad a set of beans that he wish he had in real life...poor kid...typical though.

anyway...
mayhem420- October 26, 2008 at 3:16 pm
@Vrax
I would love to see those 2 fight (Anderson vs GSP)
I just dont understand how it seems most people are looking past GSP/Penn 2
If GSP loses to Penn than that fight would lose some of its luster.
I think that Anderson has more options at LHW right now than to wait for GSP...
Jeeves- October 26, 2008 at 3:12 pm
Here is my problem. . . If Cote blew his knee in the second, and finished the round as he claimed - What was he doing bouncing around like an idiot on the one foot? I mean, he took 2 or 3 steps on the one leg right before it went out.

What was he thinking? I know I would be thinking, 'Maybe I shouldn't put too much weight on it'
Jeff- October 26, 2008 at 3:07 pm
Please Dana, don't waste our time and money with a rematch.

Put Cote up against Leben, that's a fight that wouldn't suck.

If the Anderson Silva we saw saturday night was fighting Dan Henderson, we'd have a new champion. Hendo is gonna take that belt if he gets another chance.

Also, how about the UFC sign Cung Le!?!?!??! Isn't he a free agent, or did strikeforce manage to stay in business? If Silva retires without fighting Cung Le, I'll be let down.

And lastly..... HELPING ANOTHER FIGHTER UP? Are you fucking serious Anderson? How about diving in and punching him in the face? DId you forget that was allowed? You are not even close to my top 20 favorites anymore, in fact you're on the fast track to becoming despised.

Alves is the next Champ. Love ya Georges, but it's a done deal.

TUF Guy Says:
October 27th, 2008 at 8:14 am

The best fight of the night was me kicking the crap out of two drunk dudes at a club after the fight. I pretty much dozed off during the event, wishing that the douchebags from this and other forums who promised to come to my section and row (which I posted numerous times) to beat my ass. It didn’t happen. They probably saw me sitting there with 2 girls at each side and just turned around, cause who wants to get knocked silly like a schoolgirl in front of a bunch of ladies?

Either way, I wish the guys that ‘promised’ me that they’ll kick my ass would explain themselves now. I would love to hear the excuses. Pathetic.

I have proven that you guys are ALL keyboard warriors. I made my point. I am greater than anyone on here point blank period.

http://www.cagepotato.com/2008/10/27/cote-i-fcked-him-up-really-bad/#more-3005

· All I can say is what a “Hero”…………more like, what an a$$clown. A martial artist does not need to show his expertise by vowing to kick everyone’s ass, true understanding of martial arts is just the knowledge of one’s own abilities.

TUF Guy, it is people like you that give martial arts in general a bad name.
Jay- October 26, 2008 at 2:51 pm
Anderson went Genki Sudo on Cote. I think if anything, Anderson Silva beat himself and so did Patrick Cote. Double KO in my opinion.
