The answer is simple...money.
Your correct if they fight one of them has to lose.
You say..then what?
I say...so what?
Jones almost lost to Belfort via armbar, Silva got his a$$ handed to him for 4-1/2 rounds and GSP was in deep waters after the HK from Condit.
The perception that these fighters are unbeatable is simply that...a perception.
The reality is any of them could lose any fight they are in; it's merely a matter of probability.
And if that happens the massive payday from the superfight is gone as is any perception that Silva, GSP or Jones is unbeatable.
