    Default Anderson Silva v. Patrick Cote: UFC 88 or UFC 89

    http://mmajunkie.com/news/4868/ufc-a...d-be-added.mma

    Its been mentioned as a possibility for UFC 88, which very well may make that card the most stacked UFC card of all time.

    This article also has it as a possibility for the free card in London.

    Its a shame that Yushin broke his hand, because while thats a mismatch (most fights with Anderson nowadays are) it has some history behind it, and it isn't near the mismatch that this one would be.

    Edit

    And this article has Dana stating pretty definitively that it'll be at 88 making the main card look as such. It also mentions that Anderson may fight again at 205 on the New Year's Eve card.

    Anderson Silva v. Patrick Cote
    Chuck Liddell v. Rashad Evans
    Rich Franklin v. Matt Hammil
    Dan Henderson v. Rousimar Palhares
    Karo Parisyan v. Yoshiyuki Yoshida

    Best card of all time? I think the two main fights have too heavy of a favorite for that distinction.

    I'd have to go through all the UFCs to call my favorite, but UFC 51 had a lot of great matchups and on NYE, I thought it was exceptional to have GSP-Hughes and Wand-Chuck on the same card.

    I agree this would be a very solid card with some big named but there would not be that one fight that I would be dying to see.

    Anderson and Chuck both get to viciously KO guys and showcase themselves against decently "name" opponents. Much like nearly every name guy got to do this weekend on the bestest card EVAR.

    Then Franklin v. Hammil, Henderson v. Palhares, and Karo v. Yoshida are all solid style match ups.

    I agree. Not that this card is the best ever, I know you were being facetious, but the two main events are relative squash matches, and the other three are very intriguing. Palhares is very promising, so I think this might be a little early to be throwing him in there with Henderson, but I'm looking forward to it. Hammil-Franklin is interesting and Karo-Yoshida could be fireworks.

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...

    I think that Cote might be pooping his pants after watch last weekends fights???
    Anderson sure does like to fight. He is not the typical UFC fighter that waits many months between fights, he likes to fight all the time. I really like that about him and his training camp, especially since he is willing to fight up a weight class just to get fights in, not too many still at 185 that he feels deserves a shot.

    I do think Franklin-Hammil is one of the most suprising matchups the UFC has given us in years. No one ever expected that matchup and both are very good.

    Henderson could lose, so its a real test, but not sure it will be a great fight. Card is above average I would say

    I actually wasn't being facetious, in terms of just on paper if Silva v. Cote gets put on the card I think you'd be hard pressed to find many UFC cards that match up like that in terms of just number of name guys.

    Of course, what actually happens during the fights will matter in any "best ever" discussion. If all the fights are blow outs or boring decisions like they were during some recent "best card evers" then some luster will obviously be taken off it.
