Do we need another super fight? No. It's honestly now or never though. Once one of them loses, the stock of this fight goes down tremendously. Weidman and Hendricks will be there. Just do this stupid fight now or be done with it. If it doesn't happen next, I don't want to hear about it anymore.
If it causes a delay in title defenses I have a problem with it. If it doesn't happen before August 2013, they should both vacate their belts to make it happen. If they do that, I have no problem with it, particularly since Georges has said he'd want to stay at MW if he gains weight, and since Anderson would either retire with a loss or start looking at Jones with a win.

That would be the saddest thing I've ever heard of, if it's true.
I don't have a problem with the superfight, in and of itself. I'm not a fan of them--particularly when there is such a disparity in size between the fighters, and that's also true for Silva/Jones--but I don't hate them.
I do have a problem with 1 title defense in a two year stretch for both weight classes, if everything goes on hold to make this happen.
I don't know that it matters, anyway. I'm pretty sure that even if the superfight doesn't happen, and Anderson defends in 2013 [instead of making yet another crap mma-fighter-in-a-movie movie with segal] he is going to bypass the winner of Boetsch/Weidman for a shot at Bisping, provided Bisping gets past Belfort.
But ultimately, I don't think anyone's opinion on this board matters, certainly not mine.
There is only one opinion out there that actually makes a difference, and that's Georges. Time will tell.
