French Canadian fighter Patrick Cote, who last fought Anderson Silva for the Middleweight title, is recovering well from a knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. He reportedly came into the Silva fight with some damage to his knee, which eventually betrayed him during the bout, giving Cote a TKO loss and prompting the surgery that has kept Cote out of action since October.

Cote recently spoke to The Fight Network telling them that he is already doing preliminary conditioning and training, and that he expects to be training at full speed in around three weeks. In talking of potential opponents for his return Cote said, “I want to fight someone in the top-five or top-10, I want Alan Belcher or the winner of Rich Franklin vs. Wanderlei Silva.” He also mentioned a desire to fight Vitor Belfort if he were to return to the UFC, however there are no rumors regarding any possibility of Belfort returning to the promotion.
