“Even with a rough start in the UFC, I’ve always believed in myself and I came back strong and right now I have a UFC title fight...And the other thing is, I’m not intimidated by Anderson Silva. I respect him a lot, but you know, he’s a man made out of flesh and bone like me, so I ain’t scared of him at all.
“I just have to execute our game plan the day of the fight. It’s going to be a very hard fight, but we’re very confident that we are going to win. I will knock him out. He’s the best fighter in the world, so it’s going to be very good to be world champion and to have a win against the best fighter in the world at the same time.”
-- Patrick Cote, sounding as confident and ready as one can be nearing a fight with UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva at UFC 90.
