    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.

    Seems like us two canadian assholes are the only people working today. :o

    It's slower than a Diaz takedown in here.

    I hope Cote is gonna win but I am going to be realistic and he is probably going to get submitted

    Im interested in seeing Almedia's hands. His hands were solid in Pride but he did take quite the layoff so Im interested in seeing him bang a little.

    :bowdown: to alliteration.

    Bring your chequebook if you do, shit is expensive out here. :wtc:

    Only ballers like ITR06 can afford two apartments.

    I like Cote's chances for this very reason. Almeida's last fight was :eek3: good but it wasn't enough to shake off the ring rust imo.

    Truft. 5% market correction in DT, and 15% correction elsewhere called for 09 by the big boys at TD. Not that it makes anything any more affordable.

    Perhaps but at this point in the game, I think Cote could put Sakuraba in a coma before getting submitted

    Different subject and I don't disagree but Almeida > Cote still.

    Koreans > Chinese

    Are those Korean or Chinese smilies?

    Cote winning would be better for the fans because then we would be guaranteed a standup fight between him and A.Silva.

    It would be Leben-Silva redux, hopefully a few minutes longer. As much as I love Cote a blood sacrifice to the war god must be made.

    It'll be great for the MMA noobs who only care about stand up. A stand up between sloppy vs technical is not great, it'll be one sided. It'll be Chris Leben #2, I'll rather see how Anderson Silva copes with a world class BJJ guy.

    Cote has relatively technical standup, especially compared to Leben.

    People who enjoy standup are MMA noobs now?

    I said it'll be great for people who only enjoy standup. :hsugh:

    Yes, it'll be one sided, yeah it'll be entertaining but I'll rather see an all out MMA match rather just a one sided brawl.
