The reason GSP/Silva is a "superfight" isn't that they are both champions of their respective divisions- that's just part
of the cachet- it's that they are the alpha-dog dominant champions of their divisions, who haven't lost (in MMA terms) in forever.
It's that rarity.
Diaz is a good fighter, and if he gets by GSP, his stock will rise.
However, he would have to go on one helluva
tear afterwards for a fight between AS and him to be rationally dubbed "superfight".
