The CP is reporting that Patrick Cote’s split decision win is going to earn him a middleweight title shot versus Anderson Silva. Silva does have two fights planned already though: James Irvin in a light heavyweight bout, and a middleweight title defense against Yushin Okama. If all goes well for Silva, Cote will get his fight around November.
It’s unknown what Cote’s schedule will be, but his manager Stephane Patry said that due to the length of time in between now and the possible title challenge, Cote may fight again.
