Silva's quick UFC rise?

I was looking back over Silva's road to a title shot and it looks like he got a shot really fast. Pickings must have been slim back then.

Win Rich Franklin KO (Knee) UFC 64 - Unstoppable

Win Chris Leben KO (Knee) UFC - Ultimate Fight Night 5

Win Tony Fryklund KO (Elbow) Cage Rage 16

Loss Yushin Okami DQ (Illegal Kick) ROTR 8

Win Curtis Stout KO( Punches) Cage Rage 14

Win Jorge Rivera TKO (Knees and Punches) Cage Rage 11

Loss Ryo Chonan Submission (Flying Scissor Heel Hook) PRIDE -

he was on a 5 fight winning streak, that DQ loss vs Okami (reminds me of the Jones/Hamill fight) where Silva was just dominating Okami but slips up with an illegal kick and losses the fight. but yeah Rivera-Stout-Okami-Fryklund-Leben = Title shot hahaha pretty crazy

Clearly they gave the right guy the quick title shot... Hasn't lost since he's been in the UFC...

yeah, they were hurting for 185ers back then also. Christ, they gave Nate Quarry a title shot for whooping Pete Sell's ass
