    Since buying Pride in 2006 and having a monopoly on the market and nearly every fighter available under one roof, list the superfights that Dana claims the ufc makes. And dont bother with Liddell Wanderlai, it was too late.

    Well off the top of my head...

    Hendo vs Rampage/Anderson
    GSP/Penn 2
    Reem/Lesnar
    Cormier/Jones

    Couture/Big Nog is a big one since you specifically mentioned Pride

    Couture big nog is not one I ever thought about at the time but it did turn out to be a good fight. Too bad randys chin was gone by then, he got dropped at will!

    Not really a superfight, it was justa rematch of a normal fight.

    The UFC never put on the superfights they claimed they would.

    The last one they did was Alvarez vs Cerrone...lol the balls theyhad to claim that was a superfight

    If only Frankie had beaten Benson in the 2nd fight.

    Then we'd have Aldo FW Champ vs Edgar LW Champ

    Definitely a super fight.

    They don't really do "superfights". Mostly it's been a very meritocratic system with people fighting according to rankings, though there are exceptions and some marketable fighters have been given easier roads to the title shot.

    The problem with your mode of thinking is that once a fighter joins the UFC you don't think of it as a super fight anymore.

    Chuck/Wand was a super fight

    With champs constantly fighting the best fighters, it's hard for their to be a superfight today. How about naming the superfights they missed out on not involving Fedor

    Depends on how one defines a super fight.

    Nog vs Couture and Wand vs Chuck could be considered super fights or just really big fights that happened too late.

    Wand vs Crocop I could be labeled a super fight because you had one of the best in MMA vs one of the best in K1.

    All depends on the criteria of a super fight.

    GSP vs Penn II might be the only one.
    Silva vs GSP/Jones would have been another.

    OK I think it's pretty clear now that the TS has an agenda

    The only 'super' fight I remember was Aldo/Pettis, but too bad it got scratched.

    EDIT: Forgot GSP/BJ 2.
