e off against Yushin Okami but Okami broke his hand in training and Cote has been moved up into his spot

Silva, however, represents a significant step up in class. The Brazilian is 7-0 in the UFC, with only three of those fights reaching the second round. Anderson Silva is seen by many UFC fans, as the bestpound-for-pound MMA fighter on the planet, a reputation he enhanced July 19 by dispatching light-heavyweight James (The Sandman) Irvin in 61 seconds in a bout contested at 205 pounds.

Anderson Silva

Cote, (14-4) fighting out of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, is on a four fight win streak in the Octagon™, beginning his string of excellence back in February of 2007 with a decision win over Scott Smith at UFC 67. Six months later, he TKO’d Kendall Grove in the first round at UFC 74, and followed that up with a first round TKO over and

Drew McFedries at UFC Fight Night in January 2008. But it was his most recent victory, a pivotal win over Ricardo Almeida at UFC 86 on July 5th that propelled him to number one contender status. Now Cote has the opportunity to join countryman Georges St-Pierre as a current Canadian UFC titleholder by taking out reigning champion Silva at UFC 90.

Diego Sanchez vs. Thiago Alves

Thiago Alves plans to show Diego Sanchez a thing or two when the pair lock horns during their 170-pound clash at UFC 90.

Thiago Alves (15-3) and Diego Sanchez (19-2) will throw leather, setting the stage for a blockbuster welterweight showdown that will more than likely determine the next number one title contender in the

stacked division.

Alves is fresh of ridiculous performance against Matt Hughes, taking out the former champion in the second round of their main event tilt at UFC 85: “Bedlam” just last month. Prior to that, “The Pitbull” wiped out another perennial powerhouse, Karo Parisyan, at UFC Fight Night 13.

The 24-year-old Brazilian was already on the fast track to an eventual title shot. And a win over Sanchez would certainly put him over the top.

Rich Clementi vs. Gray Maynard

Lightweights Rich Clementi and Gray Maynard are likely to meet at UFC 90 on October 25th in Chicago.

Clementi (32-12-1), a long-rumored UFC 90 participant, has won six-straight bouts including four-straight UFC victories over Anthony Johnson, Melvin Guillard, Sam Stout, and Terry Etim.

Maynard (5-0), who advanced to the semifinals on The Ultimate Fighter 5, fought Rob Emerson to a no contest in his UFC debut but has since won three-straight bouts inside the octagon over Joe Veres, Dennis Siver, and Frank Edgar.

UFC 90 would be the highest-grossing event in the arena’s history, edging out Wrestlemania for that honor. It’s safe to say the UFC will be returning to Chicago frequently from now on. The 20,000-capacity Allstate Arena, which is located just outside Chicago in Rosemont, Ill.
