I picked Fedor.

If Anderson beats GSP AND Jon Jones than I think there can be no argument that it is definitely Anderson.

Frankly, no single victory that Fedor has could match an Anderson win over Jon Jones. Beating GSP is all well and good, and I think many people who have Fedor p4p #1 all time might switch if Anderson beats GSP. That said, moving up in weight and fighting a dominant champion (Jones has already defended the title 4 times which places him in a 3 way tie for 2nd most defenses with Chuck Lidell and Frank Shamrock and only behind Tito Ortiz with 5 defenses **Thanks Wikipedia**).

Moving up in weight to defeat a huge dominant champion will clearly make Anderson the GOAT.
