We caught up with Patrick Cote’s strength & conditioning coach Kevin Kearns as he completed a tough session with Cote and asked him how he felt about Patrick’s training, preparedness and chances against one of the best in Anderson Silva.
Don’t count this french man out! I have been fortunate to work with over a dozen pro fighters over the last few years. The past number of weeks, Patrick Cote and I have been working together alot. I have to say, not only is he bull strong and fit, but mentally, he’s a rock!
I know the odds are not in his favor. I know Anderson is one of the best. In this business however, with 5 oz gloves on anything can happen. I put Cote through some of the most grueling ‘gas in the tank’ workouts you have ever scene. He said to me the other day: “coach, I have 2 problems, I’m so in shape I want to do more and I’m so in shape don’t want to sleep. I told him good, your almost ready. We want the Cote Express to arrive right on time on October 25th. It will my friends!
Until next time, Cry in training, laugh in battle!
