This should be a good matchup. Both fighters have very obvious strengths. Almeida is a beast on the ground and Cote has some of the heaviest hands at 185. Cote's last loss was by submission against a very motivated and prepared Lutter. Cote is a purple belt in BJJ and I feel he should be able to hold off Almeida's sub attempts. It will be interesting to see if Cote can get the fight standing up if it goes to the ground. Almeida will try and get this to the ground as quick as possible. Once it gets there he will be like Jacare in his fight vs Miller, sub attempt after sub attempt. Almeida might catch Cote in something, however I feel this fight will go to a decision if it stays on the ground. The only real question mark in this fight is Almeida's standup, and if he is foolish enough to bang with Cote. This fight is too close to call, either way the victor will prove to be an interesting sacrifice to the Spider.
