To say that they should not let him have that shot is like saying that nobody can play on a championship NFL team unless they have played on a different team in the league first. Or college track stars cant be put on the footbal team because they didnt play in high school. It is the nature of the beast, we dont always like it but thats just the way it is. BTW it aint his fault they gave him a title shot!!! What was he gonna do? Say "no, because I dont think the fans feel like I am ready"? heck no!! he took the fight because he felt like he could win. And guess what, he won.
I would agree that its not his fault that he got a title shot, but how do you justify the interim belt? how do you (the ufc) make such a mockery of the interim belt? whats the point of the interim belt if they can bypass it at will to give Mongo a title shot because its good marketing?
