Cote Preparing To Train

Patrick CoteHard-hitting Canadian Patrick Cote has been on the shelf for a while now, though he won’t be for much longer.

Set to begin training as soon as three weeks from now, ‘The Predator’ is already thinking about his next fight. Cote recently spoke with The Fight Network about his plans to return.

“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.”

I’m a big fan of Cote, and excited to see him get back to action. While I think he should be able to step right into some big matches in the near future, I don’t know that taking on a Franklin or Silva is the best idea in his first fight back. Now that his knee won’t be giving him anymore problems, maybe Cote should start off slow.

You’ve got all the time in the world Patrick. No need to rush it.
