In an interview from his hotel room with MMACanada.net following his bout with Anderson Silva that ended when Cote's blew out, the tough Canadian gives his thoughts on the fight:
I was in the best shape of my life, I was ready to go and I think that I proved to everybody that this guy’s not unbeatable. I think I f***ed him up really bad. My game plan was good and I think he was scared to exchange with me. I received all his best punches and all his best knees and I was still there.
Cote did walk right through all of Silva's best shots but Silva wasn't the same Silva everyone was used to seeing and Cote really had nothing to offer the champ. Also keep in mind that Cote is looking a little under the influence during the interview.
