    Cote is on a roll, it sucks that he has to bow out this late. But I've had knee injuries and they are no joke so its understandable.

    Cocky maybe, but in all honesty Cote didnt want the fight, He feared it would take a little more than another lucky wild left hook.. that would be my guess. But that does suck about his knee i wanted to see belcher destroy him

    I doubt Belcher would have destroyed Cote…. He couldn't handle Kendal Grove… and Cote knocked Grove out…

    It woulda' been a good fight though!

    Alan Belcher would destroy Patrick Cote, Belcher is gonna own day, cote just doesnt have it against alan belcher, who will be a middle weight stand-out this year.
