03:00 PM ET 10.16 | Patrick Cote discusses his experience of facing UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. He was knocked out by Silva in the third round at UFC 90. "You have to stay on your game plan," Cote said when asked what to do when Silva starts playing in the cage. "It's very, very hard. I remember [against] me, he was playing with his hands. He was doing some crazy footwork, like the new Bruce Lee or something like that, but I would stay on my game plan, but that was very, very hard for me because I like to go forward. I like to push the pace, but at the time, I knew that was exactly what he wanted."

Swanky Jones, you must not have even seen that fight. It was a terrible fight ending in injury with no beating taking place.
