Pure Judo I'd say he was at an extraordinary level. Fedor is the worlds best Sambo practitioner. Sambo mixes traditional Asian wrestling, Greco Roman wrestling and striking. Thats probably why he has such a freakish advantage and ridiculous record as a HW. He was able to use his skills to win in any position in any circumstance. I see an argument for best HW Judoka player in mma. But if he went to the Olympics he might have a harder time copmpared to KDH, or Akiyama.
