Default UFC 90: Can Cote Upset Silva?

Anyone here think Canadian Pat Cote stands a good chance in upsetting Andersen Silva this weekend?

UFC fighter Matt Serra seems to think so.

Matt Serra an idiot.

Anyone can beat anyone, all it takes it one well place punch or kick.

Cote has a strong as hell chin and a strong as hell puch.(and he has been being trained by GSP)

He has as good a chance as anyone.

I'd be tickled pink if Cote won.

Huge upset if he does, but lets be realistic, Silva is very good.

Go PATRICK

I would love to see a Canadian Kid do it, but with all respect to Fedor (who hasnt fought anyone except Big Tim in the last 3 years of note), Silva is easily the best P4P in the world today. Leben has a legendary chin aswell, but he got handled easily by Silva, his KO power is unbelieveable, he is probably the hardest striker in the world and the best Muay Thai aswell as superb BJJ. I dont really see anyone in the MW Division that can go with this guy, he is motivated for his legacy and seems to want a few more big paydays then to retire as champ. He is the closest thing to a ninja i have seen in MMA, its truely a marvel to watch.

Cote is a really good fighter, but he has lost to way less skilled guys then Silva in the past and i think its asking way too much of him to expect him to do anything against a phenom like Silva. I consider Dan Henderson and Rich Franklin to be on par (well actually i consider them better :P) then Cote, and Silva has recently handled then both easily, pretty much embarrassing Franklin twice.

GL Predator, i will be rooting for you, but not betting on you.

Dan Henderson is a hell of a fighter.

Only way Silva may get beat is if GSP and him fight at a catch weight.

It would be a helluva big draw, but Silva is a big guy and losing more weight probably isnt a great option for him, he could easily move up to LHW if he wanted, and if GSP moved up to MW it wouldnt be a contest, but i love both of these guys, first let GSP dismantle BJ Penn (who i cant stand) then perhaps this will happen, but im afraid Silva is serious about retiring, he even wanted to fight Roy Jones Jr lol
