Shouldhavebeen - I agree, it was. Forrest was a huge star at the time. It sucks he had two concussions in his camp which ultimately led to him being tkod with a jab.
Also zanax the night before the fight Phone Post

Could be debated. I guess any fight with two former champs is a superfight no? Phone Post

Technically so was the Hendo fight. At the time Hendo was guy who had just won the barely dead Pride's championship belts in 2 divisions. Hendo was coming down in weight from a superfight with Rampage in a fight that a lot of people thought Hendo won.

It was basically title vs title.

Andys legacy is cemented already.

edgar vs aldo was a superfight and it wasn't nearly as entertaining as forrest vs silva. Superfights arent real.

Very good point. That was the peak of Dan Henderson career also so its not like he was fighting an over the hill Hendo Phone Post

For real, I expected more entertainment value out of that Frankie Aldo fight. Phone Post

Fighting a hall of famer warrants the superfight tag IMO. Phone Post

No, that was the fight that put Andy on the map. It was Mach that was the sole super star going in that fight.

I just knew that Mach was considered the greatest fighter ever back then (read: P4P#1) but I wasn't actually a fan then.

I figured it was his KO of Newton that put him on the map. Phone Post 3.0
