Chael Doesn't Qualify for MW Championship Fight Much Less LHW

Chael lost twice now to MW champion Anderson Silva. He doesn't qualify to fight the MW champion, much less the LHW champion.

I really like Chael, but lets start looking past the hype and look at reality here.

The reality is that Chael fought his way through the top of the division, minus Vitor, and earned his MW title shot - twice. He lost both times, but that hardly means he wasn't qualified. What an utterly pointless and, frankly, stupid thread.

He was completley qualified for his MW title challenges. He was in no way qualified for the potential LHW title shot. At the same time, I think he poses the biggest threat at LHW for Jones. His style is literally designed as a loop hole for the unbeatable opponents.

Too bad I think he loses to Forrest.

And Vitor doesnt fight top ten contenders, its a rule....he only fights catchweights and people on losing streaks...oh and the occasional p4p king.

That doesnt create a pattern of randomness at all. Vitor hand picked those guys by turning down everyone else.
