What is wrong with a gifted athlete going to the top fast? GSP got his shot at the belt against Hughes around the same time, with less fights in the UFC at the time.
Sure the LHW division is more stacked right now than the WW division was when GSP got his first shot but I don't really see a big difference.
A lot of the top fighters at LHW are either on a one win streak or on a losing streak, so giving an opportunity to a young star who has been terrorizing whoever he has fought is nothing wrong. If JBJ wins, then he still has to face many good fighters.
Just look what BJ Penn did in BJJ and only training in 3 years, he went into the tournament destroying world class black belts who have been doing this their whole lives.
