My preferred mode of play in UFC Undisputed 3 is Event Mode. So I discovered this glitch that allows you to play open-weight matches (HW vs. LW, WW vs. BW, etc.). As far as I know though, it's only available to do within event mode because of the way matches can be selected. Here's how to do it:
1. Open event mode (Any name, venue, number of fights works)
2. Hit the A button on any particular match to edit the specifics of it.
3. Select the weight class of the first fighter that you want to select. Then, pick the fighter that you'd like under that particular weight class in either the red or blue corner (doesn't matter).
4. Hit confirm before selecting the second fighter. The match should show only the competitor you selected.
5. This is the part that allows you to pick ANY other fighter in the game. Hit the A button on your match again to open it up, however, make sure that you immediately hold your left analog stick to either the left or right as soon as you hit the A button. By you holding the left analog stick, the weight class for the fight will change, but the first fighter will not be removed. Normally, changing the weight class in a match within event mode will also remove the original fighter you selected, but holding the analog stick before the fight comes up ensures that your selected fighter remains there.
6. Now, you have to get lucky in holding your analog stick to land on the desired weight class for the second fighter. When you release your analog stick, it will land on the weight class that you can now pick for your second fighter. Go to the other corner and pick the fighter that you want.
The most random aspect of this process is which weight class you land on while holding the analog stick. You can somewhat control it if you have a quick eye. If you don't get the desired weight class though, you can always start the process from step 2 again. You can even set up an entire event with 8 different open weight fights! Let me know if this works for everybody or if you have any questions.

Just tested this and it works, doing Overeem vs Aldo right now.
Good to hear, enjoy. Let me know how the fight goes.

First Round was incredibly even. Aldo took two knee's when Overeem sprawled, both men took side guard and dropped a few elbows. Overeem probably won the round slightly.
Second Round Aldo quickly shoots on Overeem and gets a takedown. Back to the feet, Aldo using speed to range Overeem, landing some flashy strikes. Overeem clinches him and puts him on the fence, backs away, uppercut followed by overhand. Overeem takes the thai clinch, trys to strike, Aldo counters and takes the thai clinch. Aldo cuts Overeem. Aldo throwing combos on Overeem. Aldo trys to throw an overhand, Overeem ranges him. Aldo trys the same move again, Overeem ranges it and follows with a vicious overhand, ends the fight.
Overeem by KO 4:05 of Round 2. Solid match, played out pretty realistic. Aldo was doing a really good job of opening him open with quick combos and movement, but one mistake and Overeems power ended it all.
This is f****** fun.

The only problem that I have is that it's not realistic... The fighter ratings and stats are relative to their respective weight classes so you end up having Anthony Johnson being JUST as strong as Overeem. It's fun to see, and I just crushed Struve with Mighty Mouse, but it kinda lacks that "David vs. Goliath" feel. --- "What, we're throwing spinning **** now?" GT: Robotech2020
@ThatBoyIsAMan I agree with you. THQ obviously didn't prepare for open-weight fights. It's a glitch that I'm sure they were unaware of, so the fights don't go realistically. For instance, let's say you play as Overeem. You have to throw the same number of punches (give or take) to knock out JDS as you would Jose Aldo. The glitch doesn't give you a realistic open-weight fight. All it really does is allow you to substitute fighters outside of their normal weight division to create "dream matches".
