Simply because they were able to beat Anderson Silva and because Anderson Silva never beat them in a rematch?
No they shouldn't because following those encounters Anderson Silva rebuilt his rankings by winning the right fights and beating the top fighters whereas his opponents went on to lose their rankings due to their subsequent losses.

Fedor can rebuild his rankings most certainly but he just hasn't done it yet. If he stepped into the UFC tomorrow and beat Cain Velazquez he would be back on top but until he does so Cain is the man to beat at heavyweight.
