Why does the “Tanks for Ukraine” discussion focus on the Leopard 2?

It may simply be my media bubble but it seems that the discussion on providing main battle tanks to the Ukraine focuses strongly, almost entirely, on the German Leopard 2. Why is that?

Now I understand that the Leo 2 is likely the best tank out of all the options, being well-regarded, produced for export, etc. However, it seems odd to me that there is seemingly no discussion around e.g. the British Challenger 2 (or mothballed predecessors). Seeing how the UK is otherwise not shy in providing equipment, this seems an odd omission.
