Patrick Cote is heading down to Brazil this weekend in an attempt to bring his post-UFC streak up to 4 in a row. And while he’s probably pretty close to getting a call back up to the UFC, you won’t hear him trying to drum up support for an Octagon return before he’s earned it. He’s got a problem with people who do that, as evidenced by his tweet towards Tim Sylvia:

@patrick_cote: Dear Tim Sylvia, shut the hell up, win fights and stop begging, its f*cking anoying !!!

Big Tim replied with a somewhat hurt sounding “I thought we got along” tweet (why do his friends keep doing this to him??) that led Cote to rephrase things in a slightly less dickish manner:

Maybe that was a little bit out of control because that wasn’t a personal attack to Tim Sylvia, but that was just begging to have a chance to go back to the UFC, for me, it’s just a shame. You can’t beg the big organizations like that.

The only thing you have to do is shut your mouth, win fights, and prove you deserve to be back in the big show by winning fights and by your performance.

You’ve been a champion in this organization; you know how things work. You’re not going to go anywhere by begging like that. I was just annoyed about begging, a lot of the begging, and I said loud what a lot of people was thinking. I have nothing against Sylvia. He’s been a great champion. He did a lot in the sport. He did a lot in the UFC. I hope he’s going to be back in the UFC. That’s not the point. The point was just about the begging thing.

Speaking of fighting the big fights – and continuing the trend of fighters beating up talk show hosts – we’ve got that footage of Patrick Cote beating me up in the ring from our Fightlinker pilot. Check it out after the jump and enjoy my brain trauma!
