My point is, in 2005 Fedor was 28-29, he fought Cro Cop, and since then through the rest of what should have been his prime, has fought no one. He is still only 34, M-1 has helped him dodge the UFC all together. He wouldn't fight Randy Couture, Randy even left the UFC to open up the possibility of the fight. Brock became champion three years ago, he dodged a contract to fight Brock then at the age of 31. Since joining strikeforce he has avoided at all costs fighting Alistair Overeem, and in doing so has now lost to two Heavyweights who according to the fanboys weren't even on his level. Any of the current UFC heavyweights would beat Fedor. It's like trying to say Jaromir Jagr is the best hockey player in the world.. well, he is excellent, did well at the World Champions, but he plays in the KHL now.. how can you compare to the real big leagues over here in North America?
One of those losses was to Fabricio Werdum a two-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion and two-time ADCC world heavyweight champion. Those fanboys over at Sherdog ranked Werdum the #3 heavyweight in the world. (wfs).

Werdum defeated Alistair Overeem by submission on May 5, 2006. (wfs)
