    Alvarez vs. Edgar? What are you smoking? There was never a time when that fight made sense.

    How about instead of listing arbitrary fights that were never made you list the ones that were? Instead of fighting a 3-1 fighter, Nog fought Mir, the guy who beat Brock. Instead of fighting Lombard, Silva fought a much bigger fight in the rematch with Sonnen. Lombard was given a guy he was supposed to run through and let everyone down. That's all on him. The UFC made the right decision in both of those matchups.

    Missed Couture vs Cro Cop, Sylvia vs Cro Cop,
    GSP/Silva is the huge blown opportunity.
    Not truly a superfight, but Swick vs Leben was a missed opportunity when they were both on runs after the buildup on TUF.
    Pettis should have fought for the belt as soon as he moved to the UFC. Was BJ still champ, or was it Edgar then?

    Ronda vs Kevin Nash/Scott Hall.

    Tough for UFC to make the super fights when divs are 10-20 pounds apart and fighters/champs arent willing to move up to fight each other.

    UFC tried to get Fedor, he wouldnt sign.

    They pushed for GSP to move up to fight Silva, he wouldnt.

    They wanted Silva/Jones but Silva didnt seem into it.

    I never saw any concrete evidence of that, and Dana never seemed too convincing in his assertions that he wanted to make the fight.

    They couldn't make that fight. Edgar vs. Maynard ended in an amazing fight and draw remember?

    My memory's a little fuzzy about those days... looking back at Fight Finder, I had a lot of shit going on in my life then that clouded my memory (other than smoking crack).
    Pettis in a champ vs champ fight could've been pushed big time. In the long run, I think the Guida loss probably made him a better fighter, but champ against champ would've been cool.
    Pettis would've had to wait awhile looking at the dates, though.

    It was his call and he would've had to sit out a long time. Edgar vs. Maynard III was the fight that had to happen.

    In the long run it set up Bendo as the champ and Pettis as the title contender. Which imo was the more compelling fight.

    And I don't count Penn versus Hughes because Penn made that fight. They did nothing.

    The Chris vs Lyoto. I consider it a superfight if it's between a champion and a former champion if they're both in their prime.

    The only true super fight the UFC has ever made was ruined because the "champion" from the heavier division allowed his corner to lube his back and shoulders with Vaseline.

    What makes a superfight a superfight?
