Re: How would JDS beating Overeem and Cormier compare to Fedor beating Nog and CC?
I dont think so. Unless Velasquez was to rip through everybody but JDS he cant be seen as huge a scalp as Nogueira.
Nogueira beat everbody available to him and avenged both his SD losses (debatable decisions) via sub and a UD.
He beat a lot of guys before Fedor got his hands on them (Herring, Coleman, Filipovic, Werdum, Sylvia) or perhaps didn't even face (Rodriguez, Kharitonov, Barnett).
I also see an average resume in regards to Overeem.
In short it comes down to how good Velasquez can make his resume ; )
