You are saying that Chael.... a middleweight who lost his last fight is being offered a shot at the light heavyweight belt because of how good of a fighter he is? I must respectfully disagree. Chael is where he is because of his talking - he is a good (not great) fighter and a GREAT talker.
I get what you are saying but I think you missed what Garduna meant. The reason Chael was offered this fight was to bring up the TUF ratings, not because he talked his way into it. Now you can argue the reason Chael will bring up the TUF rating is due to his talking but you get the point.
If TUF ratings were still what they were on Spike, then there is nothing Chael could say to get this fight
