True. And thats exactly my point. The UFC with its shallow rosters needs to keep the best challengers free for the champions. So criticizing Chris for his quality of opponent is a bit silly considering. If they fed Chris all the top contenders before the title shot, then who exactly is Silva/Vitor etc supposed to fight in that time? The UFC simply doesn't have the numbers to keep the top of every division busy with quality opponents.
