Maybe, did they market it as one? Phone Post
I don't know, Champ vs Champ is a super fight though, right? Phone Post 3.0

Purgey - Wasn't his fight with Mach kind of a super fight?

Also: Xanax. Phone Post 3.0

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

Silva Hendo was a Pride/UFC unification bout with both guys also being established stars so would agree. BJ/GSP 2 had the hype but BJ was fighting up.

Frankie/Aldo was a super fight imo.

Silva vs Hendo was a legit superfight IMO. IIRC, most people expected Silva to lose.

Barely - I think something like -150.

I think the general consensus was that Andy was fighting sub-standard competition and that Dan's wrestling and decent stand-up would be too much for Silva. I could be wrong about that though.

It's kind of a moot point though, as the fight was pretty one-sided.

Werent Penn and GSP the #4 and #3 p4p at the time? With people arguing over Fedor and Anderson? So that sounds like a superfight also with it being champ vs champ Phone Post 3.0

Yeah he was fighting up, and was a champion. I consider that a superfight just like if Andy/gsp or Andy/bones would have happened. :-)

Edgar wasn't a champ but pretty fucking close vs Aldo. Phone Post

If said "thuperfights" actually exist... Forrest, Hendo, Vitor, and maaaaybe even Bonnar were thuper.

A superfight - to me - is either one for pure entertainment, not for pursuing or defending a belt. Just, "Lets see what happens if..." Or, it's a fight tween legends / huge names. These fit my bill. Phone Post 3.0

I agree with others, the Dan Henderson fight was also a super fight. I don't know about Forrest Griffin (I've always hated him) but I guess in terms of popularity it may have been.. Phone Post 3.0

Anderson vs Dan Henderson was sort of a superfght.  Dan was the Pride Champ and Anderson was the UFC Champ.

Shouldhavebeen - People hate on Stephan but he is a true fighter and has a heart of steel. I always got pumped to see him fight. I knew he was gonna go balls out no matter what.

What you mean to say is that you damn well know he wasn't going to KO or submit anybody no matter what.


LOL @ getting "pumped" to see Bonnar fight. Good grief
