Superfights are ideal when the smaller guy is hungry/ballsy and decides to call out the guy in the weight class above him. He needs to have dispatched the top contenders in his weight and be at a point where his only options left are shitty rematches of fights that weren't competitive the first time around.

It was birthed from the UFC's inability to honor an agreement with Pettis at LW.

Now...

* Weidman wants Jon Jones with 1 title defence

* Hendricks wants Weidman after 2 title defences

Courage is great, but don't superfights have more value after cleaning out your division?
yah, its only a true superfight if both champions have cleared out their divisions imo.
but pettis vs aldo is a dream fight regardless. some of the top contenders have a decent chance at beating pettis so id rather not wait for that to happen and set up that fight with aldo while its still up there.

weidman and hendricks would have to clear out their divisions imo if they wanted a superfight.

Look, Weidman is a great fighter, but he was a fucking terrible matchup for Silva. Jones is a fucking terrible matchup for Weidman. I do admire Weidman for wanting to step up in weight, but methinks he's doing it as much for the potential payday as the challenge...

I'd like to see Weidman clear our Vitor, Mousasi, Machida before he talks about Jones (who will probably be at HW before long)

Title defences doesn't mean anything. It's all about fans' excitement about the fight

I'd like to see more guys fight between divisions, not just established champions or guys who have to cut down to a lighter division to stay competitive.
well said. im dying to see aldo vs pettis.
unlike anderson vs gsp or anderson vs jon jones,
aldo vs pettis is a toss up, between 2 of the best strikers in the UFC.
