    Cro cop vs Couture when Couture was champ. UFC blew it by feeding cro cop unknowns in an attempt to create a UFC highlight reel. The guy just won an open weight tournament in pride and was ranked number two at the time and he fights Eddie Sanchez in his debut and then relatively unknown at the time Gabriel Gonzaga? This is Mma not wwe anything can happen and it did and we got robbed of a super fight.

    Having super fights late doesn't make them super anymore.

    Anderson/GSP means squat now if Georgie even has the balls to fight old man Silva.

    Liddell/Wandy was too late also.

    Well Aldo is a 2nd rate boxer now so theres no point with the legs kicks that would have been a cool kick orientated fight.


    Id like to see Hendo vs Silva the immediate rematch that should have happened like with Fedor and Nog

    I agree that it was a great fight but it was booked before Pettis fought for the LW belt. Although he already had the WEC belt and beat the reigning UFC champ to get it.

    I agree.

    Not trying to make excuses because Gonzaga really came to fight that day but I think Mirko was really overlooking him as his friend Werdum had already TKO'ed Gonzaga in Brazil and was probably telling Mirko how easy it would be for him to do the same.

    I just feel like the term "superfight" is over used.

    Back in the day a "superfight" between GSP and The Spider was a mythical battle for the ages that would probably never happen.

    Now people seem to think any fight with guys in 2 different weight classes is a superfight. Or any champ vs champ. Anderson and GSP were unstoppable "perfect" fighters in their own weight classes. Now people call for a "superfight" the instant someone wins a belt and barely has it for a week.

    Agree 100%.

    I have no desire to see any FORMER Super Fights today.

    Wouldn't be a Super Fight.

    Nice sentiment but stupid thread.

    Saku vs Rickson no longer super nor desired but back in early 2000's one I wanted.

    Kid vs Faber could still be fun . But not a super fight more a masters classic.

    I am ok with some classic matchups but can't think of any where fighters still reasonably capable of fighting competitively. Even Wand vs Sonnen kind of overdue losing some luster .

    P.S. Kron begin a title run somewhere preferably Bellator or UFC, but can imagine their reluctance to be tied down in an org thus doing one event at a time like RIZEN for freedom/ flexibility.
