Right off of the faceoff they drop the gloves and square off near the blueline. They grab ahold of each other and immediately start going toe-to-toe with lefts. Asham goes down to a knee, but gets back up after a moment. They start going toe-to-toe with lefts once more until Asham finally lands one that sends Cote down to the ice. Asham falls on top of Cote and the linesmen jump in as well.
Asham's throwin with his head down, and Riley's facin Asham and wearin his punches like an animal. Gotta give it to Cote for ill intent and being a badass
I watched this fight 853 times and after further review.......Cote, winner, with malicious intent!!!!! ok, i watched it 1 more time and it's asham, i think?
There's Cote serving up another beauty. Great fight!
Nice fight, both guys believe the best defense is a good offense though eh?
who doesn't love watching asham fight? he always trades shots, and he's only 5'11 but brawls like a biker. cote is a very tough kid, he took a wicked shot to the jaw and kept swinging. called it a draw, can't wait to see more this year from these two.
Draw. Good scrap. Both landed some good shots.
Great old school fight. I got to see Riley when he played for the Dayton Bombers it's good to see him scrapping in the big time.
Cote, Asham, Cote, Asham.....a draw if I ever saw one...great fight
Both land big shots. It looks like there skates get tied up, and they go down. They were both still throwing as they went down. Cote jumped up unphased. Hard fight to call.
Early candidate for fight of the year... great bout. I'm surprised nobody was busted open. Call it a draw.
Great fight! At least Chico and Emerick are fair when they announce a fight. Great to see guys JUST THROW PUNCHES! Guys used to try to land and throw like crazy. Now guys are worried that they're going to catch one on the chin and be embarrassed. Go back and look at some of the fights with Probert and Craig Coxe and Crowder, and many many others. They threw bombs, they didn't wrestle. Anyway, this reminds me of those days. MUCH CREDIT TO BOTH GUYS. Way to go. I scored it a draw, but I gotta say I'm with AA as a Devs fan. He's standing up for his team, and not playing too bad, either.
Great fight! But i can`t decide, who wins it.
Exchanging shot for shot! BOOM! Great Fight!
Draw. Good exciting fight. Both guys are gamers.
the flyers feed showed the reverse and asham landed about 3 punches to cotes 10. ill call it a draw since asham sent cote down
Great bout. Calling it a draw, though giving Asham the edge is not unreasonable.
I know you all think Asham won this, and it was close for sure, but....I vote draw. Its a bad angle for Cote, you cant see how many of his punches land, but as a boxer, it looked to me like a asham was getting his bell rung at the same rate that cote was. Cote actually took the punches better- hes tougher. Still, Asham was surprisingly tough, and faster than I had thought. Draw, but a great fight.
close battle. Asham on points and the takedown.
Asham cranked it up and sent Cote sprawling.
Asham gave him some real nice shots to the face. Watch closely he looses his balance from gettin bashed in the head. great fight tons of punches Winner: ASHAM
Great Tilt! Many landed many thrown by both combatants but the tough native from Manitoba prevails. Asham in a close decision
Asham with the final punch takes it.
Cote smoked him! Asham just got in a lucky one there at the end!
Cote wins. The last punch by Asham is not enough!!
i go cote because at the beginning of the fight when he drops him to a knee cote is about to throw another punch but holds up because he doesnt expect asham to get back up which to his credit he does but that slight hesitation gives asham a chance to get some shots in and make it a very close fight but i give it to riley
Draw,,even though Asham got the last punch in.Good fight!
Maybe the greatest fight by Asham ? Nice good slugfest between this two tough guys!
looked like a draw to me. Great fight!! Both guys landing shots.
No TKO, but if thats not a KD i dont know what is.
I think he got caught at the end. No not a knock out but a knock down.
Good scrap....Asham by a hair
Asham with the clear win. Although cote landed a few good shot, Asham landed a bomb that snapped cote's head back about midway through, then the last 2 shots clearly put down Cote! Win Asham
Best fight I have seen from Cote. Perhaps he is getting better, which is good news for a Flyers fan like myself. The edge however goes to Asham who I think is the best pound for pounder in the league.
Asham does himself proud
you flyers fans are so bias you shouldn't be allowed to vote on this site. the punches were even but who went down first and who landed on top. asham takes the win on this one.
Knockdown win - Asham
Off the face off Asham and Cote drop them and go into a long square off until Asham grabs on. Asham gets his right free while Cote goes with his left. Cote seems to get the better of the toe to toe, but once Asham gets his bearings he throws a few rights that put Cote down.
Some serious fist flying there. Great stuff. Gotta give it to Asham as he looked to do the most damage, what with Cote falling backwards. But Cote looked to land a few good shots early himself.
great fight.both fight good but what a punches by asham.wooau.i give it to asham for sure.
NOT SURE WHO LANDED MORE BUT I KNOW WHO LANDED THE LAST ONES, ASHAM IN A CLOSE DECISION,GREAT FIGHT
Great fight. That last hook by Asham caught Cote flush on the jaw and buckled his legs. Asham gets the better of Cote in this slugfest
Bashem Asham doesn't go much. Can't say much about Cote. Being Flyer enforcer ,for a Heavyweight he should be able to handle AA.
Good fight both got in some decent shots. Cote landed more but Asham caused a cut and had the takedown. Asham wins due to damage inflicted.
KD-win to Asham from great toe to toe fight. Punches were thrown many in quite short time.
Asham took it at the end....however it was a good scrap
Nice punches exchanged, but in the end Asham gets the knockdown so he gets the win
Love it rockem sockem robots. Always get a good effort from Asham for a middleweight
Good fight, dead even until one final blow for Asham
good old time fight
Asham with the big right !!!!!!!!!!
close but asham dropped em at the end
Great Fight. Tough too call but I give it to Asham for the knock down.....although Cote looked more in control and landed the more hurtful shots.
big isles fan here- was very sorry to see aa go to the friggin' devils- aa is one tough nut -never backs down and wins more than he loses- love ya ash and miss ya- aa winner here!
Saw it in slow-mo, that second to last right sent Cote on his arse!
Excellent slug-fest with many bombs being thrown. This was very close, but those last couple of shots Asham threw as Cote went down gave him the very close decision...how tough is Cote, taking a couple of point blank shots of the snout and bouncing right back up off the ice as if nothing happened...YGBSM!!!!
The Cote nuthugging on this site is embarrassing....dude got dropped by the Alaskan Assasin. That's a clear victory in one of the best scraps of the season...
knockdown at the end of a close fight. cote bigger, but asham better. one of cote's better showings, he will definitely improve, because he doesnt check the name on the sweater first before dropping gloves like some others.
Asham was the clear winner. Sure, Cote threw way more punches. But Asham landed the more devastating shots. Asham gets the "W" here.
That was a knock down, but not a KO. Great fight. Definitely FOTY candidate.
Great fight. Asham with the slight advantage, but props to both guys.
a very good fight ! a nose Asham
Asham got the best ones that landed. Fast fast fast. Great scrap by both. Asham by a nose.
Arron whooped him....easy call on this bout
Wow, rock em sock em baby. Almost a domination by Asham. The only thing Cote won was a trip down to the ice. Asham must have landed about five solid punches to the facial region and Cote probably landed 2 or 3 but Cote goes down like a sack of potatoes.
one of the best fightsof the year.. asham with the win
Toe-Toe Asham Win
cote is a tough sob ..But i think asham had a slight more quality punches..off balcance..whatever he got rocked!!
down goes cote go DEVIL
one of the best fights of the season...so far.
I call it Asham cause Cote needed stitches.
WOW - what a PHENOMENAL fight! Arron Asham BY FAR won that fight. I hate the Devils and Phillies but I speak ONLY the truth when I rate. Whoever says Cote won obviously knows nothing about Hockey or fighting......get a life you Philly losers and except defeat. Did you see those amazing 3 shots around the 30 mark and then the final one that rings Cote's stupid bell???!!!! WOW - even though Asham sucks balls, he was awesome. Go Rangers!
Great Fight. Cote only looked ok in this one because he was throwing little jabs at the same time as Asham was landing bombs. And The last shot did drop Cote. "GO TO YOUTUBE.COM... SOMEONE POSTED A SUPER SLOW-MOTION OF THIS FIGHT." (if u think im bullsitting.) Asham's punches are snapping Cote's neck & head backwards. IT LOOKS INSANE ! I'm suprised only 50% voted Asham winner here. But I definately say Cote was shaken up after this one. ASHAM GETS TKO HERE. PERIOD.
That was a great fight...Asham took a beating and then came back with some nice bombs to put him down....Win Asham
Wow, Cote dropped by a middle weight.
No holding, just all out brawl! Great fight. Asham the winner
Asham threw a lot of punches, but did he hit anything?
Not sure who the idiots were that voted for Asham, when he had his ass habded to him in this fight. Cote by unanimous decision, easily!
Asham got hammered, the Devils are in last place, life is good.
cote wtih the win......most of his punches landed, but with asham only 2 landed clean.......asham sucks
If you watch the replay, it is plain to see that Asham connected on about 2 or 3 of his punches. Cote connected on at least twice as many, if not 3 times as many. I really don't see how you can say Asham won that. I could see a draw maybe, but not a win for Asham. Also, it didn't look so much like Asham went down on top of Cote as it did that Asham and Cote both fell down and Asham landed with his head in Cote's lap. It looked that wrestling move that the Razor Ramon guy (??) used to do.
i would love to see cote and josh gratton go
I agree Cote by an edge...he had landed some blows earlier
I dont know what you guys have been watching! Asham? yeah right he was just swinging trying to stay alive. COTE ALL THE WAY HE IS A BAD MAN!
cote got the betteer punches in gotta give it to him
Cote was the winner of this one. If you watch closely, he buckles the kneess of Asham, not once but twice. Asham got in some good ones but Cote buckling his knees twice makes him the winner in my eyes...
Is it just me or does it seem like all of Cote's fights are slugfests? I would give this to Cote for absorbing all of Asham's hits and throwing a lot of nice ones.
What fight did you guys watch? Cote can throw with anyone and in this scrap landed more effective shots. Asham landed one good punch then started to look for the ice!!! Asham's head was down the whole time begging for it to be over!!!
most of ashams punches wernt landing he only landed maybe 3 or 4 and cotes puches kept hitting asham in the helmet.
Cote landed a bunch, helluva a bout.
I think Cote gets the win, he lost his balance, but had to have landed more and close to 90%. Asham definately got his in too, but I give it to Cote with the combo work.
Cote landed hell of alot more
Im a Canadiens Fan and I see alot of people hate the flyers and have biased opinions....Riley Cote controlled this fight landed the better more effective shots..Because at the end Asham gets 1 that connects and Cote loses an Edge Everyone gives this to Asham....This is about as bad as a boxing match Noone knows how to score a fight anymore..
They both landed some good punches, Cote seemed to land better ones, then was knocked off balance.
another "fight of the year" quality scrap for cote. i love his old school style of fighting, head down and throwing punches. one of the most entertaining fighters the flyers have had in a long time.
good scrap i must say cote looks like the replacement for fedoruk i would lioke to se how i would fare against the champ Laraque
riley cote clearly won this fight, asham landed a couple at the end , but cote landed most of the punches. thats why asham went off the ice so quick and grabbed atowel from the trainer , he was cut. go flyers
These boys could give one of the Contender fighters on ESPN a run for their money...Nice bout!
Great fight slight edge to Cote but it could have gone either way, Just because you get the knock down dosnt always mean you get the win.
great fight. idk who to give that too, they both threw great punches and i think cote looks as though he lost his balance at the end. Id give it a draw.
The quality of Asham's punches were not as good as cote and cote landed more. The last punch shouldn't be the only one thats judged. win cote
cote with the win,asham is a gamer ,but cote lands more and harder punches.Asham with 2 nice shots at the end,but the rest was all cote ,including a kd early on.GREAT SCRAP,
How the hell can anyone call this a KD? Cote clearly lost his balance, he was still throwing punches as he was falling.
They looked like Rockin Sockin Robots. Cote early on but Asham won this spirited bout and the end. Winner Asham
I can't give that as a win to Asham despite the one good punch he landed. Cote landed about 8 to his 1 or 2. I gave it a draw. Asham sucks and so do the Devils.
Pushed off balanced and finished with a punch. Not a knockdown.
nice fight!!! edge to Asham
Good Tussle! Was leaning towards Cote until Asham jerked Cote's brain. I say a draw.
Asham beat the crap out of Cote. Cote's head was rockin back and forth on some of those blows.
Cote clearly won, give me a break. Just because he lost his balance, doesn't mean he was knocked down or that Asham gets the take down. 99% of Asham's punches missed.
Asham the winner for landing more punches and knocking him down.
Good toe to toe srap until Asham connect one right on the button
Asham won this fight. Cote landed some good short punches at the start of the fight, but the shots Asham landed in the beginning were better. The knockdown was fairly legit because Cote got rocked with a right a second before falling back on his ass. Or maybe I just see it this way because I hate the Flyers.... Cote sucks.
asham dropped Cote he wins. Although looks like cote was delivering more wood.
I'm a Devils fan and I give this one to Cote. Throwing them with your head down and putting your helmet forward isn't a great fight. Also just because Asham fell on top doesn't mean he won.
