Probably because Josh Barnett, Aleksander Emelianenko, Mark Coleman, Kevin Randleman, Wanderlei Silva, Igor Vovchanchyn, Heath Herring, Kazuyuki Fujita and Kazushi Sakuraba weren't cans, and he crushed them all.

A win over a prime Josh Barnett is a serious scalp for any heavyweight. Barnett was an extremely tough and good fighter in his day. That opponent alone sets Crocop way above actual can-crushers like Lombard.
