Wait a second....let me throw something out there....
If Anderson Silva...right now, asked to fight for the 205 title, should he get the shot? I believe yes. I think it would be better if he fought some of the other top names, but if he said he was vacating MW title, or was going to try to hold both belts, sure, give him whoever the current champ is. I think he deserves the shot more than JBJ! (and I am, to be perfectly clear, a believer in the Jones hype, but believe this shot to be too early for him). If Spider is fighting at 205, and challenging the champ (whoever that may be) I don't want to call it a "superfight," it's "just" the p4p king fighting for another belt. The GSP superfight is because it's the two most dominant champs fighting. JBJ v spider wouldn't be a superfight.
If you believe no, AS shouldn't get a shot at the LHW champ, then I could see why you would't want this fight to happen, but it's because SILVA doesn't deserve an immediate shot (which I don't agree with) not because JBJ (who, in this hypothetical IS the champ) doesn't "deserve" the shot at Silva. Silva would be the challenger (though I can't imagine he wouldn't be a heavy favorite.) The Champ "deserves" a shot at any challenger the UFC gives him. Should it be against any of the LHW contenders before Silva, yes....but not because JBJ doesn't "deserve" to fight Anderson Silva.
