    Disagree. Two legends in their primes, and champs of their divisions. Super fights are all about context and that was definitely a super fight

    Superfight doesn't specifically mean champs in different weight classes fighting each other. And that's all you're naming.

    Melendez was considered the best lightweight outside the UFC, some even considered him the best. So the UFC signed him and had him fight LW champ Bendo. How is that not a super fight?

    The fighters have to be willing to do it as well. And most super fights need a guy willing to move up a weight class. Not very many are willing to do so.

    Youre being a twat. Im not just naming different weight classes. Iisted lesnar vs nog, lombard vs silva, alvarez vs edgar etc etc. Do you have difficulty reading?

    GSP/Penn 2 was a super fight. Maybe you weren't around then and don't understand, you're trawling, I don't know.

    Anyway, Liddell/Silva. Although late, it was still a killer fight.

    GSP vs Penn 2 was a super fight

    Champion vs Champion

    Pretty much the definition of a super fight

    Depends on your definition of a superfight. Henderson/Melendez, Jones/Cormier, GSP/Shields, Aldo/Edgar, Silva/Diaz, Hendo/A.Silva, Hendo/Rampage, GSP/Penn 2, Overeem/Lesnar, GSP/Diaz, Big Nog/Sylvia, A.Silva/Griffin

    If the current champion of the LW division (and former WW champion) fights the current WW champion and isn't the definition of a Superfight then what the hell is a Superfight?

    The only Superfights in Zuffa UFC history are:

    GSP UFC WW champion vs BJ Penn UFC LW champion
    Dan Henderson Pride MW (aka LHW) vs Rampage Jackson UFC LHW champion
    Dan Henderson Pride WW (aka MW) vs Anderson Silva UFC MW champion

    There have been no others that I can recall. I don't believe any SF champions fought immediately for any UFC titles.

    Edit: Giblert Melendes SF LW champion got an immediate title shot vs Benson Henderson UFC LW champion
