"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."
-- Confident Cote strikes again -- this time in the Edmonton Sun via Fight Network radio. The Canadian has been talking quite a good game leading up to his fight against 185-pound demon Anderson Silva at UFC 90: "Silva vs. Cote" at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Ill., on October 25. However, the "Spider" has demolished virtually ever fighter who has adopted the "in your face" strategy inside the Octagon. See James Irvin, Rich Franklin (twice), Nate Marquardt and Chris Leben.
