The odds have been much worse for actual title fights on numerous occasions.
Im just saying that before fighting the number fucking 1 behind the champion you should have beat at least one top 10-15 fighter in the world. Just this

What was Silva ranked before Brown finished him?

You have a case to face a top guy with a 7 fight win streak. Pyle and Silva were both top 15 when Brown beat them.

He's beaten top 15 guys from what I understand.

They were? Who they beat to get the spot?
The point is he should have already fought a top ten fighter with that winning streak. But he didn't, because UFC prefers to feed him the Silvas of the world to entertain the casuals...

Not bashing on Brown, I just think he should/deserved have fought a top ten fighter before fight the n1 contender.

He definitely hasn't proven himself against meaningful opponents but this is his shot. Beating Robbie would justify him as a #1 contender.

It's hard to blame the guy because he was booked with Carlos Condit and the bout fell apart from injury. He's been looking for a big fight, he just didn't get any.

Right now, according to the promo and the UFC website, Brown is ranked 5 currently... If rankings are so important to you, he obviously deserves to fight in a contender fight on that basis alone. You don't have to beat guys above you to move up the rankings, especially if you are finishing people left and right. Brown has been getting stoppages, so there is that as well.
