I would make a poll, but I can't

I heard Dana reference the upcoming superfight, and I was confused. This fight did not come to mind when I was trying to figure out which fight he meant. Do you consider it to be a superfight?

No. If Edgar was currently holding a belt, I'd say it would be. Like BJ Penn vs. GSP 2 was a total superfight.

Having said that, the Aldo-Edgar fight is as close as you can get to a superfight nowadays in the UFC.

Fuck yes. People have wanted to see it for a long time. It's Aldo's first test against a top lightweight. Both guys are p4p greats.

When I think of superfights I think of fighters from different weight classes or rival promotions. Its a great fight but its not superfight in my opinion. Phone Post

Yes, IMO it is the Jon Jones vs Anderson Silva of the lighter weights. Phone Post

About as close as possible! The belt is only limiting factor. Phone Post

I'd say yes, but it technically depends on who you think won edgar vs bendo 2.

Former LW champ dropping to fight the current FW champ has the makings of a super fight; though perhaps not a superfight.

Yes. It just doesn't seem that way because Edgar had plenty of challengers at 155 lined up. Usually we only talk about 'superfights' when a champ has been dominating his weight class for a long time and we've run out of ideas.

For sure, Edgar and Aldo are two of the best fighters in the world from two different weight classes going at it! Most def a superfight.

there's nothing technical about a super fight, so that actually doesn't matter at all. what people think technically isn't technical.

What would we call two #1/top contenders from different weight classes fighting each other at a catchweight?

Didn't Rich Franklin have a couple fights at 195? Were those superfights?

No way.

Edgar has lost 2 in a row.

No way a super fight.

That said it should be a lot of fun. Phone Post

Hell yea. It's a fight between 2 elite P4P guys. Not too often you get to see that.
