IMO, he shouldn't even be in the octagon with Silva. He's done nothing to earn it.
The fights only happening because they couldn't give Bisping a shot after losing to Vitor and there was no else who hadn't already lost Silva.
Just watched his 2 most recent fights and saw nothing that would justify the hype whatsoever. Chris is a good fighter, got some talent in some areas, but winning the belt sounds not so plausible.
