I'm not a fan of the super fight idea because they all just seem so unrealistic.
I would agree by and large. I don't like most super fights. Part of the fun of P4P lists and arguments on who would win between, say, Anderson Silva and GSP, is that it's all speculation and the mystery of it all. Once we know the actual outcome of such a super fight it takes the shine and luster out of the loser and it makes us say stuff like "Well he's not as good as so-and-so, look what happened when they fought".
That said, there are some "super fights" that are realistic and may happen one day out of necessity or whatever. Examples, Benson Henderson vs Aldo when Aldo makes the move up when the weight cut becomes too much for him anymore. Jones vs Velasquez is another decent example what with the talk that Jones plans to move up sooner rather than later. There are a lot of fights for Jones at HW that I'd like to see when/if he does actually make the move. Match ups with JDS, The Reem, Big Foot, Struve, Big Country, Velasquez, Mir, etc.
