Patrick Cote: 'If they offered me Anderson Silva tomorrow, I would take it'

patrick cote



"[The UFC] asked me who I want to fight next, and I told them if they offered me Anderson Silva tomorrow, I would take it. I'm not afraid of anyone in my weight class. I don't want easy fights. I can wait if it means I'll have a bigger name guy to fight on another card."

With three straight wins inside the Octagon, middleweight Patrick Cote is setting his sights on UFC Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva. "The Predator" just stopped Drew McFedries last night at UFC Fight Night 12. However, "Spider" has a huge showdown with Dan Henderson at UFC 82: "Pride of a Champion" on March 1. It's safe to say that a match up between Cote and Silva is way down the road -- Cote will more than likely need a few more wins to justify a crack at the 185-pound title. In the meantime, the Canadian will be a guest commentator at UFC 84 on April 19 in Montreal, Canada. Therefore, he will not fight on the first-ever UFC card north of the United States border as expected.
