“I will be back in the gym fully training in three weeks or so…. I want to fight someone in the top-five or top-10…. I want Alan Belcher or the winner of Rich Franklin vs. Wanderlei Silva…. I would love to fight Vitor Belfort if he came to the UFC.”
Former number one middlweight contender Patrick Cote recently spoke to Thefightnetwork.com about his road to recovery and possible future opponents. Cote underwent major knee surgery in November 2008 after shredding his knee while inside the Octagon opposite reigning middleweight champion Anderson Silva at UFC 90 back in October 2008.
The UFC 90 fight with Anderson Silva resulted in a TKO loss for the Canadian, which he feels may have gone his way considering he went more than two rounds with Silva. Cote was the first man in Silva’s UFC career to go more than two rounds with the middleweight champion.
