And it broke my heart. Blame who you want, but it is an absolute Travesty those fights never happened. That's why I say make "Silva vs Gsp" right now and assuming Silva wins, make Silva Jon Jones immediately after that assuming Jones beats Chael.

The time to make the fights is now. "Later" never works out.

Silva v. Jones is just something that has to happen.  I need to see it.  It's like those Faces of Death videos; pretty nasty, but you can't look away.

First, I'm surprised you have a heart. Second, I agree with you. Make the fights ASAP. Everyone will make a lit if money and it will help establish either fighter's legacy. This sport needs its Ali-like icon and if Silva won against GSP and maybe Jones, we'd definitely have our icon. Phone Post

Wand vs Fedor and Wand vs Randy were THE fights to make.

Wand vs Fedor had the potential to be the most violent MMA fight if all time.

Just imagine those two going at it UNDER PRIDE RULES!!!!!!

Ugh - Sherdog. Poor dears.

I'm not being condescending - I'm too busy thinking about far more important things they wouldn't understand

theres a lot of good things about sherdog. i dont see why everybody has to bandwagon hate it. the news is usually solid with the exception of a couple writers, and the radio is pretty good too. for forum needs, you can just UG.

Easy FOTN if not FOTY potential.

Hughes vs. Silva was supposed to happen at UFC 36, but Anderson had already signed with Pride. So they brought in Sakurai.

as far as fights in recent memory that were supposed to happen but didn't

Condit/Lytle had FOTY written all over it and they tried to set this fight up twice but Chris got injured the first time, and the 2nd time Condit was injured. Would have been amazing

Another incredible fight that nearly happened was Nick Diaz vs. Eddie Alvarez. This fight was supposed to headline Elite XCs final show but the doors were closed before it could ever happen. I can't imagine how crazy this fight would have been.

Yes. Alot of talk and wanting it. Which is crazylooking back. Same thing will be said 5-8 years from now about people wanting to see GSP and Anderson. People will look back and realize just how retarded it is wanting to see that fight. Total mismatch. Phone Post

Condit/Lytle would have rocked.

 

I was still hoping for a Alves/Lytle rematch.

huh? Hughes ran through Sakurai, and he may have been able to use the same strategy on Silva. Silva hadn't yet hit his peak yet, and that was Hughes in his prime.

Chonan beat Silva in Pride, yet Hughes beating him in that same period is a total mismatch? Ok...

From Sherdog:

The Team Miletich product and “The Spider” were scheduled to lock horns at UFC 36 in Las Vegas. Hughes had captured the welterweight strap with a second-round slam KO of Carlos Newton at UFC 34 and was just beginning to establish himself as one of the most dominant 170-pound champions in the promotion’s history. Silva, who was then Shooto’s welterweight ruler, was a more slender version of the fearsome striker he is today.

Silva instead signed with Pride Fighting Championships, where he suffered the last two legitimate setbacks of his career. His UFC debut would not come until four years later.
