Patrick Cote Continues to Deceive Himself About Anderson Silva Fight


(Cote enjoying the hell out of his alternate reality.)

When I saw the video of Patrick Cote looking inebriated in a hotel room and talking about how bad he had “fucked up” Anderson Silva in their fight at UFC 90, I assumed this was something he needed to tell himself in order to enjoy his post-fight party. We all have our own pleasant fictions, and I can’t begrudge a man with a blown out knee and a cut forehead from getting all hopped up on, well, whatever he was hopped up on, and telling himself a palatable story about what had happened that night.

The fact that he still believes it is a little more disconcerting. Speaking about the fight on MMA Rated Radio, Cote seems to have decided that Silva‘s antics weren’t a show of disrespect, but rather a sign that the champ was so utterly confused in the fight that he didn’t know what to do:

“I don’t think it was a lack of respect. I just think my game plan was perfect. I was moving a lot, going forward but not running after him and I don’t think he was expecting a lot of leg kicks like I did. He gave me a very good shot and I was still there…He didn’t want to exchange, I think, with me.”

That is one possible interpretation. Granted, it’s the interpretation that’s most generous to Cote, and the interpretation that only Cote seems to subscribe to, but it’s an interpretation nonetheless. As for Silva offering his hand to help him up, Cote has an explanation for that one too:

“I didn’t take that like (it was) a lack of respect. I took that more like he tried to hide (because) he was a little bit lost because when I was on the ground I gave him two very, very good elbows on his head and he wasn’t able to do anything on the ground.”

Let me see if I understand this. Silva was so discouraged by the two “very, very good elbows” from Cote that he “tried to hide” by extending his hand to help Cote up? And the fact that Silva engaged only sparingly, though effectively, this was also a sign of how lost he was?

It’s hard for me to accept that Patrick Cote might actually believe this. You can’t underestimate the power of willful self-deception, but hasn’t he watched the tape? Has he heard what anyone is saying about the fight, or does he only listen to the dudes in his entourage who shout things like “You fucked him up big time!” whenever the conversation turns to this bout?

If Cote genuinely thinks that he had Silva so confused and so lost that he couldn’t mount an offense, then by all means, give that man a rematch once his knee is healed up. If nothing else, it ought to be a useful learning experience for all parties.

ever seen anderson silva fight mad? regardless if cote believes that he fuckedup silva's gameplan or physically fucked him up..he did very well in that fight. silva blasted him a couple times and didnt go in for the kill. not cotes fault. i dont even like cote really, but he did the best against silva aside from ryo chonan and dan henderson. if they have a rematch i think cote will do even better, if he is at 100%. may not win but really...who does?

rematch with henderson..henderson wins
lutter rematch without the illegal elbows...lutter would lose by decision.

silvas awesome, but the blueprint is prettymuch written..avoid the counters (dont chase). greco clinch to nuetralize the knees..frustrate him when hes on the bottom...hard to get submitted from closed guard. im not saying i can do it..but i can see it..

I think Silva would have beat Cote! And I’m Canadian, I am just saying im tired of Silva being portrayed as some MMA GOD that is "untouchable" because of how fast he destroys middle of the road fighters...its sickening ..hes NOT Lb for Lb fighter in the world..not even close, and i think he knows that, and is why he wants to retire now with his "ALMIGHTY" reputation. Who knows maybe I’m wrong but would someone PLEASE give him a top 5 opponent ..please...then will see.

Hahaha, thats funny!!
we got some silva's haters!!!
Hahaha- November 10, 2008 at 9:42 am
You sadsack.... I totally agree with you.

Time to be grown ups and stop acting like WWE fans.
You sadsack- November 10, 2008 at 9:37 am
If you're so in love with a fighter that you can't man up and admit he lost, you need to question just why it is you like MMA. Is it the sweaty men rolling around or no holds barred combat? Cote lost. Silva landed the only significant shots of the bout. Just because you are Canadian doesn't mean you have to turn retarded when analyzing any fight with a Canadian in it. I'm what you call "not a bitch" so I can admit that Forrest beat Rampage, the fighter I was rooting for. Try acting like an adult sometime.
Hahaha- November 10, 2008 at 9:28 am
Wow.. This is exactly the place where cowards can be "TUF" guys. They can say whatever they want and not mind the haters... Coz He THINKS he's "TUF".

Anyway.. I hope someday you bumped into someone who will literally give you a beat down. Like break your nose, smash your jaw into 3 parts then leave you crying like a baby on the floor.

But for now.... Go be the Champion of your own world...

Welcome to loserville.. Population: 1

That's why you're number one in all you do!

I don't know what event you were watching, the one everyone else saw he lost!!!!
Cote Won!!!

Cote was the only one at the fight, the other guy Silva ran away like a little bug or should I say a "spider".

He choose not to fight because knew he couldn't. Just like a bug he knew when to run. Funny no one saw those dangerous elbows everyone talks about. Do you know why, he would have to go threw Cote's Fist to have to land anything. Not a chance without waking up wondering who the hell he was. Not chance he was willing to take, he Lost!!!

Cote probably hurt his leg after having to chase the fool around the cage. The UFC can throw him another win, but he lost. The next time he fights Cote he will beat him again along with anyone else who matters, they will take him apart. He's retiring don't you know!

Yo fags, update on that little honey I had over to my studio apartment- I had her over again to listen to all my bomb-ass Bette Middler and Whitney Houston CDs, then I made my famous hamburger helper (Chilly Cheeseburger in tha hizzouse!) Before we got busy I did find out that she was pre-op, but she'll be all woman soon, losers! Overall, I'd give my masturbation session after the date a 43 out of 10.

TUF Guy= #1 with the "ladies"

TUF Guy= #1 employee of the month at Mcdonalds

TUF Guy= #1 is what I did in my pants while watching Silva dominate Cote

this should teach silva not to fuck around during a match and just kill his opponents. i'd pay again to see him defeat cote and vice versa...
MMA WarDog- November 10, 2008 at 12:43 am
I agree Silva Sucks and he is so overrated it is sickening, he has fought nobody that matters and definitely nobody at peek and/or top condition. The fights have all been
with fighters not at the top of their game and with styles the UFC figured he could beat.

On the fight, I fully agree with Cote and I believe fully Silva he did not want to trade with Cote he was afraid of what Cote would do with one hit. He tried striking and did little, suffering as many and more strikes with any blow he did land and was really afraid to trade with him at any point. He spent the entire event running!!!!!
Move over Kalib Starnes!!!!!

Cote may not be one of the greatest fighter yet, I along with many was impressed and did not expect to be. He is a very solid well rounded fighter with a hammer for a fist. He skills are growing and he is well placed as top contender and potential future Champion. I thought this was an extremely good showing for him( Cote ) and Silva was mediocre at best and as usual, you know he is retiring, what a wimp( I was going to use another word ).

Many fighters fight very respectably into their late 30's and 40's. This is a cop out by Silva to say if I Lose I was planning on "Quitting" anyway and otherwise to make quick exit while I you are in the lead. Great move or champ or should I say Chump!!

If the guy went up vs GSP, or B.J (at a catch weight) he would get dummied!! PERIOD!!!
Calgary- November 9, 2008 at 11:43 pm
Silva sucks!!! All you Silva ball lickers have No idea about MMA...who has ever tested him??? Only henderson..and he would have beat him, if he didnt gas..for fuck sakes Lutter almost beat him..the guy is a fake...give me ONE opponent other than henderson that he has beat??????? Dont say Franklin because he is NOT a top fighter, never was.

You want real talent...GSP, B.J Penn, Chuck Liddel..all have amazing resumes..fighting real fighters..Silva is so dam overrated it drives me insane..oh because he beats up no names like leben, or Irvin give me a break!! fuck do you guys even go look at his recoerd..and read the names of the people he beat...of course not.....

Joe Says:
When he said he “fucked him up” it wasn’t in the context of actually fucking him up.. but he meant he was fucking up Anderson’s game plan and fucking him up in the head..
English is Cote’s second language too.. so sometimes he will mix up words..

This is exactly how I took it as well. It boggles my mind how butt hurt most cats are on cagepotato about this fight.
Face facts:
Your man crush Silva looked bad (relatively speaking of course) in this fight. Depending on how you interperet his actions, some might say he fought like a complete douche.
Cote is allowed to think that the reason for this is that he got in his head, as completely unlikely as this scenario is.
Cote looked good (relatively speaking) in this fight. Its entirely possible he could have went the distance or landed a lucky punch. He was fighting anderson fucking silva, a fighter with an aura of near invincibility in the middleweight division, and took a few really good shots and kept coming. If any of you lady-boys were standing across from the spider you would shit your pants, cry and get the fuck out of there as quickly as possible.
although- November 9, 2008 at 7:47 pm
cote is over his head on this, i think he is partly correct that silva didn't want to trade with him (to an extent) because he was in fact tanking silva's shots which can be discouraging
TUF Guy- November 9, 2008 at 7:47 pm
LOL at least I get hoes

Same people that made fun of my game are the same guys who were posting her on saturday night while I was "riiidin and griiindin down on the flooorr"

Crack rock is a bitch to come down from.
Dex- November 9, 2008 at 6:59 pm
Hopefully Cote is just selling himself and doesn't atcually believe all this crap. If so, maybe that one straight right Anderson hit him with was much harder than we 1st suspected.
Renzo for President- November 9, 2008 at 6:51 pm
Poor Cote he really seems to be either in another world or on some really good drugs. I am sure he has not watched the fight yet because honestly he would shut his pie hole right after he did.
