i agree that he hasnt earned it, but a lot of us that were fans in the "old days" remember how dominant he was and hes shown a return to that form lately and it has us excited because we've seen how dangerous he can be. on top of that his losses are to saku, overeem x 2, chuck, randy x 2, tito, and hendo, that is the greatest whos who of people in your L column that maybe any fighter has ever had.
I remember his previous fights at the height of his career as well, just that his last two opponents and the victories, don't really compare.
Don't get me wrong here, I really hope Vitor can reclaim his previous form, but he has a distance to go to achieve that in a credible fashion.
