    So many dream fights over the years that never materialized, off the top of my head:

    1) Kid Yamamoto vs Faber
    2) Wand vs Vitor 2
    3) Sakuraba vs Hughes
    4) Sakuraba vs Frank Shamrock
    5) Fedor vs the UFC

    Any others that come to mind?

    St-Pierre vs Anderson was the fight up to about 2011 or 2012 and then most people quit caring about that fight and wanted Jones and Anderson to fight.

    It's a travesty neither of those fights ever happened.

    Saku was 185 and fought a lot of his career against 205ers. He would have embarrassed Hughes.

    Sakuraba versus Frank Shamrock would have been legendary though.

    Fedor would have torn through the UFC HW division like it was wet paper back in 2003-2005 when he was prime. By the time there was actually a chance of him coming over, he was in the twilight of his career and the next generation of HW were coming up. He would have had mixed results in the UFC and idiots would have used that as "proof" that he was never that good.

    In his 2nd fight vs Royce he weighed 176 lbs; I don't think he would of had a problem making WW. I still can't believe he fought Arona, Rampage and CroCop who were huge compared to him.

    GSP never wanted to fight Anderson. He talked about taking a year to bulk up to 185, but never expressed any real interest in the fight. And fair enough, he'd be giving up height and weight, and would have been lit up on the feet if he couldn't keep Anderson down for 25 minutes.

    Not fighter bashing, GSP is obviously the greatest WW ever. But Anderson wipes him out and GSP knew it.
