    might not be the best marketability wise considering both dudes are ugly af and not too popular.. but a fight between the two would be insane. Haven’t really heard it talked about too much. Two of the longest won streaks in the ufc on the line along with a belt

    Just because they look alike doesn’t make it a super fight

    Not too popular? Both guys are fighter's. They have a lot of fans. That said, Ferguson is a huge LW and Holloway an average sized FW. Something of a mismatch.

    I think we've lost sight of what an actual "super fight" is supposed to be.

    Or does being a cross-divisional fight between two title holders make it "super" now?

    Great fight absolutely, but "super-fight" means so much more to me.

    I just want to see who got the more prominent ears side by side.....

    Joking aside I actually want to see this fight. They are about the same height at least...

    Conor vs Ferg, obviously.

    Holloway vs Ferg doesn't make any sense, I don't think Holloway has ever broadcast any interest of moving up a division.

    What’s so super about this fight? Max hasn’t even defended his belt yet and Tony is still interim champ. It would be really super if champions defended their belts at least a few times before challenging other weight classes unlike Conor and TJ.

    I'd rather see Stipe vs. DC tbh and I don't even like HW.

    Ferg/Holloway is good for sure but both need to defend their belts in their own division first before you can call it a superfight

    GSP vs Silva would have been the biggest fight of all time if it would have happened about 5ish years ago

    I've said the same

    Tony with the size advantage though should get him the win

    Great fight tho

    I don't know - How 'bout Nate vs Tony.

    But more to the point how bout they fuck off with superfights/money fights and guys start defending their belts for a change.

    You're right, it would be an amazing fight, but it won't happen because the people who care about those guys would just stream it illegally and it would only sell 250k PPVs.

    They can get those numbers with those dudes fighting in their own divisions, so what's the point?

    How is the word "superfight" associated with Holloway and Fergusen? I bet that less than 10% of MMA fans, let alone the general public, can come up with their first names and what weight class they fight in.
