I think they actually wanted him because of his athleticism, not because he was the best fighter.
I was disappointed in his performance but he showed great resolve in the 3rd. Normally, contestants are gassed by the end of the 2nd, but he was somehow able to turn it up. Weather it was because of Tyson (I doubt it as I'm sure that's just for the drama) or GSP lit a fire in his ass, he sure turned it up and finished the fight.
