Default Re: How would JDS beating Overeem and Cormier compare to Fedor beating Nog and CC?

The 3 wins over Barnett go a long way for me; then you have Herring, Vovchanchyn, Randleman, Coleman, and Aleks Emelianenko.

For years I've had my top 5 being Fedor, Nog, Cro Cop, Barnett, and Couture. I haven't looked over my top 5 for a while, so I'm sure JDS is now in at 5. I can see JDS passing Barnett with another fight, but do you think one more win gets him above Cro Cop? I'm not saying you can't justify it, or that it is crazy; I'm just interested in reading your reason(s).
