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

Posted by bostonrs555 on November 12, 2007 at 09:02 PM

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?

Posted by BStreetBullies on November 09, 2007 at 11:23 AM

There's Cote serving up another beauty. Great fight!

Posted by trpaulson on November 27, 2007 at 09:54 PM

Draw. Good exciting fight. Both guys are gamers.

Posted by Philly Fan 27 on November 30, 2007 at 01:24 PM

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

Posted by hughtrain on November 18, 2007 at 02:20 AM

Nice fight, both guys believe the best defense is a good offense though eh?

Posted by The Peach on November 12, 2007 at 11:56 AM

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.

Posted by IMPEACH on November 10, 2007 at 05:28 AM

Draw. Good scrap. Both landed some good shots.

Posted by kungfuchef on November 10, 2007 at 05:03 PM

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.

Posted by averybear on April 08, 2008 at 12:35 AM

Cote, Asham, Cote, Asham.....a draw if I ever saw one...great fight

Posted by slshbleed on November 09, 2007 at 12:12 PM

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.

Posted by NoKnuckles on November 09, 2007 at 11:38 AM

Early candidate for fight of the year... great bout. I'm surprised nobody was busted open. Call it a draw.

Posted by dansal55 on November 10, 2007 at 12:52 PM

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.

Posted by Ducks_fan on November 20, 2007 at 02:00 PM

Great fight! But i can`t decide, who wins it.

Exchanging shot for shot! BOOM! Great Fight!

Posted by QUIGGS22 on November 11, 2007 at 08:35 AM

Draw,,even though Asham got the last punch in.Good fight!

Posted by PeaHarris on November 09, 2007 at 02:03 PM

Great bout. Calling it a draw, though giving Asham the edge is not unreasonable.

Posted by Wolf_eyes on November 09, 2007 at 12:09 PM

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.

Posted by Nordberg on November 09, 2007 at 01:57 PM

close battle. Asham on points and the takedown.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 05, 2015 at 02:13 AM

Asham cranked it up and sent Cote sprawling.

Posted by stanggt3 on November 09, 2007 at 05:14 PM

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

Posted by TBLightningGuru on November 11, 2007 at 09:09 AM

Posted by clipper77 on November 16, 2007 at 12:33 AM

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.

Posted by bahbeet20 on February 13, 2008 at 06:15 PM

Cote smoked him! Asham just got in a lucky one there at the end!

Posted by eggers on November 10, 2007 at 09:15 PM

Cote wins. The last punch by Asham is not enough!!

Posted by scanz30 on December 22, 2007 at 12:10 AM

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

Posted by Sen-Dog on November 09, 2007 at 04:31 PM

Maybe the greatest fight by Asham ? Nice good slugfest between this two tough guys!

Posted by AE33 on November 09, 2007 at 10:02 AM

looked like a draw to me. Great fight!! Both guys landing shots.

Posted by wylde_buzz on November 09, 2007 at 05:56 PM

Asham wins

Posted by Avlos on November 09, 2007 at 11:42 AM

No TKO, but if thats not a KD i dont know what is.

Posted by pitslam on November 09, 2007 at 10:04 AM

I think he got caught at the end. No not a knock out but a knock down.

Posted by Leafs2006 on November 17, 2007 at 11:24 AM

Good scrap....Asham by a hair

Posted by jd99gtNYR on November 17, 2007 at 12:04 AM

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

Posted by Gunslinger on November 14, 2007 at 10:14 AM

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.

Posted by Heavy Right on November 09, 2007 at 08:41 PM

Asham does himself proud

Posted by wildernessrage on March 03, 2008 at 04:38 PM

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.

Posted by rocket on November 09, 2007 at 07:08 PM

Knockdown win - Asham

Posted by keebler61 on November 09, 2007 at 12:26 PM

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.

Posted by oakley on November 12, 2007 at 08:31 AM

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.

Posted by DARCY T on November 14, 2007 at 06:33 AM

great fight.both fight good but what a punches by asham.wooau.i give it to asham for sure.

Posted by SCOTTSO on November 09, 2007 at 05:11 PM


Posted by OriginalSix on August 28, 2010 at 01:54 PM

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

Posted by john townsend on November 16, 2007 at 08:11 PM

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.

Posted by jurewicz20 on November 09, 2007 at 03:54 PM

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.

Posted by Juha82 on June 30, 2008 at 06:36 AM

KD-win to Asham from great toe to toe fight. Punches were thrown many in quite short time.

Posted by Louutah on November 10, 2007 at 10:13 AM

Asham took it at the end....however it was a good scrap

Posted by dunno on November 10, 2007 at 03:35 PM

Nice punches exchanged, but in the end Asham gets the knockdown so he gets the win

close but asham dropped em at the end

Posted by fallon on November 13, 2007 at 08:19 AM

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.

Posted by jay55 on November 10, 2007 at 06:12 AM

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!

Posted by demodogpack on November 10, 2007 at 07:39 AM

Saw it in slow-mo, that second to last right sent Cote on his arse!

Posted by cabsf15e on November 15, 2007 at 09:28 AM

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 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!!!!

Posted by jerzona21 on November 16, 2007 at 12:08 PM

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...

Posted by chl37 on November 09, 2007 at 10:54 AM

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.

Posted by DetroitIan on November 09, 2007 at 07:30 PM

Asham was the clear winner. Sure, Cote threw way more punches. But Asham landed the more devastating shots. Asham gets the "W" here.

Posted by headcharge on November 09, 2007 at 11:12 AM

That was a knock down, but not a KO. Great fight. Definitely FOTY candidate.

Posted by Bruins29 on November 10, 2007 at 05:39 PM

Asham got the best ones that landed. Fast fast fast. Great scrap by both. Asham by a nose.

Posted by njteech on November 10, 2007 at 07:24 AM

Arron whooped him....easy call on this bout

Posted by gmathiak123 on November 10, 2007 at 09:40 AM

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.

Posted by lakingsfan19 on November 12, 2007 at 01:15 PM

one of the best fightsof the year.. asham with the win

Posted by JerseyRupp on November 09, 2007 at 09:44 AM

Toe-Toe Asham Win

one of the best fights of the far.

Posted by MoonDragn on November 14, 2007 at 02:10 PM

I call it Asham cause Cote needed stitches.

Posted by mAnYsTyLeS on November 09, 2007 at 03:33 PM

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!

Posted by SirYohans on January 23, 2008 at 12:16 AM

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.

Posted by mcgillion1981 on November 09, 2007 at 12:58 PM

That was a great fight...Asham took a beating and then came back with some nice bombs to put him down....Win Asham

Posted by redwhiteblue on November 09, 2007 at 10:03 AM

Wow, Cote dropped by a middle weight.

Posted by zeus5500 on November 10, 2007 at 02:01 PM

No holding, just all out brawl! Great fight. Asham the winner

Posted by dbakes on November 11, 2007 at 08:34 PM

Asham threw a lot of punches, but did he hit anything?

Posted by Flyers85 on November 10, 2007 at 10:04 PM

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!

Posted by hockey doc on November 11, 2007 at 08:21 AM

Asham got hammered, the Devils are in last place, life is good.

Posted by Sukoshi84 on November 09, 2007 at 03:06 PM

cote wtih the win......most of his punches landed, but with asham only 2 landed clean.......asham sucks

Posted by nofx8881 on November 09, 2007 at 03:18 PM

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.

Posted by avolante0371 on November 10, 2007 at 06:53 PM

i would love to see cote and josh gratton go

Posted by tristan16 on November 09, 2007 at 07:00 PM

I agree Cote by an edge...he had landed some blows earlier

Posted by Flyers5532 on November 10, 2007 at 07:01 AM

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!

Posted by chrisuko on April 05, 2009 at 08:52 PM

cote got the betteer punches in gotta give it to him

Posted by pogo619 on November 09, 2007 at 07:51 PM

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...

Posted by Sweeney2112 on November 08, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Win Cote

Posted by flyers0607 on November 11, 2007 at 11:58 AM

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.

Posted by sahdwd2j on November 09, 2007 at 06:08 PM

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!!!

Posted by ufclover on November 09, 2007 at 11:29 AM

most of ashams punches wernt landing he only landed maybe 3 or 4 and cotes puches kept hitting asham in the helmet.

Posted by drop_the_gloves on November 09, 2007 at 07:15 PM

Cote landed a bunch, helluva a bout.

Posted by Ricer on November 09, 2007 at 05:58 PM

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.

Posted by Defmincex13 on November 10, 2007 at 03:54 AM

Cote landed hell of alot more

Posted by habsfan82 on December 07, 2008 at 12:47 PM

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..

Posted by dwood16 on November 09, 2007 at 03:52 PM

They both landed some good punches, Cote seemed to land better ones, then was knocked off balance.

Posted by youthattack on November 09, 2007 at 03:19 PM

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.

Posted by mjb4fly on November 11, 2007 at 09:52 PM

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

Posted by geoscof on November 10, 2007 at 10:42 AM

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

Posted by HAWK2EYE on November 09, 2007 at 10:38 AM

These boys could give one of the Contender fighters on ESPN a run for their money...Nice bout!

Posted by mace14 on November 12, 2007 at 12:57 PM

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.

Posted by rootbeer22 on November 30, 2007 at 04:24 PM

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.

Posted by cotefan92 on March 09, 2008 at 06:32 PM

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

Posted by merle johnson on January 01, 2008 at 11:44 AM

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,

Posted by zowert on November 09, 2007 at 11:28 AM

How the hell can anyone call this a KD? Cote clearly lost his balance, he was still throwing punches as he was falling.

Posted by Poop Jack Pappy on November 09, 2007 at 07:21 PM

They looked like Rockin Sockin Robots. Cote early on but Asham won this spirited bout and the end. Winner Asham

Posted by mikebflorida on November 09, 2007 at 02:33 PM

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.

Posted by chris_mcallister on November 09, 2007 at 09:54 AM

Pushed off balanced and finished with a punch. Not a knockdown.

Posted by mike tyson on November 09, 2007 at 01:40 PM

nice fight!!! edge to Asham

Posted by mvigs on November 09, 2007 at 11:09 PM

Good Tussle! Was leaning towards Cote until Asham jerked Cote's brain. I say a draw.

Posted by BattleAxe13 on November 10, 2007 at 06:09 PM

Asham beat the crap out of Cote. Cote's head was rockin back and forth on some of those blows.

Posted by poopies on November 09, 2007 at 01:55 PM

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.

Posted by ETR on November 09, 2007 at 10:34 AM

Asham the winner for landing more punches and knocking him down.

Posted by vrodack on November 09, 2007 at 07:44 PM

Good toe to toe srap until Asham connect one right on the button

Posted by CocoQuaker7 on December 31, 2007 at 04:37 PM

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.

Posted by bradass81 on November 09, 2007 at 11:14 AM

asham dropped Cote he wins. Although looks like cote was delivering more wood.

Posted by madsurfer on November 13, 2007 at 10:18 PM

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.
