So the UFC have chucked the phrase "super-fight" around a bit too liberally in my opinion.  But what do you think? What is a "super-fight"?  

 

 

Do we have one lined up for UFC 181 or is that just a great fight?

 

 

Multiple choices allowed...

Interesting thread. I personally think GSP vs BJ was the only real super fight that we have seen in the UFC. However, due to popularity of the fighters, and the sheer intrigue of Silva vs Diaz, I'd probably class that as a super fight too. Two good members of the division fighting doesn't suddenly make a fight a super fight.

There are two definitions.

 

Super-fight: a fight between two current champions

Super fight: a fight that is ****ing huge. Super is still an adjective for ****ing sake

 

Weidman vs Belfort isn't a super-fight nor a super fight.

no, it's entirely coincidental.

Well if no one cares, no one will vote or comment so nobody gets hurt.

 

I'm just interested to see what people think. I like the idea that in 20 years time we can look back on a handful of super-fights; we're fortunate to be living in a golden era of mma.

If Diaz loses he will be a .500 fighter in the UFC. If you want to label something a superfight then it should at least be two elite fighters. If we are going by just popularity and intrigue then Brock vs Couture was a superfight.

I see your point about his UFC record not being great, and lets be honest, Diaz is always going to be a guy that causes a split of opinion; but honestly this fight is HUGE. For me it definitely qualifies as a super fight.

A 7-6 ufc fighter vs a guy who is past his prime, is 0-2 in his last 2, and is coming off of a long layoff due to a nasty injury. Combined record of their last 4 fights is 0-4. Anderson will be over 2 years removed from his last win and Diaz will be over 3.

Well these are all facts, and talking from a rational stand-point. I will not pretend that I'm thinking rationally, I'm just allowing myself to get excited for a fight I (and a lot of people) never thought I would see, and one that is extremely exciting for me. It will likely draw super fight numbers in terms of viewings, and is without a doubt one of the most exciting fights in recent years. I fully understand your stand-point; I'm just allowing myself to buy into the hype that very, very few fights these days allow.

Hmm, i'm on the fence on this one.  Instinctively would have said no, but it fits my own criteria. Just have to overcome my dislike of Frankie to let it count.

Surely you'd accept BJ v GSP II as a s-f as well though?

A superfight is when both people come to finish a fight. 

 

The last UFC on FOX was headlined by a superfight. You might die before you see another fight where both guys wanted a finish as badly as Brown vs. Lawler.

A super fight cannot be as simple as two champions because a champion could be a one time deal or a champion could even have a losing record or a very mediocre record.

 

A super fight would be between two fighters considered near unbeatable and having proven their longevity not just unbeaten over a few fights.Then you have to consider the fights they won,are they legit fights or gimme fights.

 

An example would be Silva he is the exception here because he did prove a long unbeaten streak but the argument one i have always used was he was given easy tailor made opponents.It would be like giving GSP fights with guys who have zero take down defense,they would be easy fights.

 

Weidman is on his way to proving himself a super fighter but not quite yet,he has to face a few more versatile fighters.Then if he was to face someone of equal status it would be a super fight.

 

Barao was before losing considered a super fight prospect because he looked unbeatable.I cannot say the same for Aldo because like Silva he never really fought anyone who would try to take him down.That one exception happened when Hominick took him down and imo and many others would have defeated Aldo that night if not for the bell.

 

Jones is another in the same line as Silva and Aldo,he also looked to be that untouchable fighter until he was matched with equal size ,then he looked like a mere mortal.I can even go back to the days of Matt Hughes,he was simply bigger than everyone else at 170,then when GSP decided to put on added size he made Hughes look bad.

 

Point being there has been VERY few fighters anyone could give the status of super fight potential.

I'm talking SuperFights though. Not superfights...

And i'm not sure they did want it so badly that particular fight, hence the outcome.

A super fight must include two fellow top 15 BBC fighters going at it.

Trujillo vs Green would have been a superfight.

Geromi vs The Black Beast qualifies as well.

BJ vs GSP is probably the only SuperFight in UFC history. I agree that it takes more than champion vs champion to make a SuperFight. What possible future matchups would qualify?

 

Aldo vs Pettis

Weidman vs Jones

Jones vs Velasquez

 

There were also several past matchups that might not qualify, but who cares? Silva vs Diaz won't qualify, but it's still an incredible matchup. Lawler vs Brown was a great matchup. One of my all time favorites was Crocop vs Wandy in pride.

List of old UFC "Superfights" (these fights were officially given the title of "Superfight")

 

Royce Gracie (tournament champion) vs. Ken Shamrock ("elite" fighter) - 4/7/1995

Ken Shamrock ("elite" fighter) vs. Dan Severn (tournament champion) - 7/14/1995

Ken Shamrock (superfight champion) vs. Oleg Taktarov (tournament champion) - 9/8/1995

Ken Shamrock (superfight champion) vs. Kimo Leopoldo ("elite" fighter) - 2/16/1996

Dan Severn (tournament champion) vs. Ken Shamrock (superfight champion) - 5/17/1996

Mark Coleman (tournament champion) vs. Dan Severn (tournament/superfight champion) - 2/7/1997

Randy Couture ("elite" fighter) vs. Vitor Belfort ("elite" fighter) - 10/17/1997

 

To me, a Superfight is match up of current or past champions, hall of famers, or otherwise marquee fighters one might consider to be "elite."
