There a several superfights within the realm of possibility, including GSP vs. Anderson Silva, and Anderson Silva vs. JDS. One fight seeminly outside the realm of possibility is Fedor Emelianenko vs. Brock Lesnar.
For that to happen, a couple of unlikely things have to happen:
1. Brock has to re sign with the UFC.
2. Fedor has to sign with the UFC.
Given the recent meeting between Brock and UFC management, there appears to be interest on both sides, so #1 could happen.
In order for Fedor to sign with the UFC, two things, at least, have to happen:
1. The UFC has to want to sign Fedor.
2. Fedor has to want to sign with the UFC.
Inside MMA is reporting that the UFC remains interested in signing Fedor.

Now Fedor is saying it is not impossible.
Fedor was asked if the constant questions about his retirement had any bearing on his decision. Not according to ex-PRIDE champion. According to Fedor, it was just time.
No, I'm not tired of the questions," said Fedor. "There are actually going to be more of the questions. People will accept my decision. They gotta understand that it's my decision and I've got to go. You shouldn't be disappointed that I'm leaving. Life is going on. I want to thank everyone who has supported me. Eventually the time to go was coming. My time has come. We'll try to make some new MMA stars."
Even though M-1's hacked website got some fans' hopes up for no reason, a fight between Emelianenko and Brock Lesnar is not happening.
Fedor was asked if that fight or any other fights with a big name opponent could possibly lure him out of retirement. Fedor was non-committal, but he did leave the door open, if even but ever so slightly.
"I'm not promising, but anything is possible," said Fedor.
