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.
Why is Cain the gateway for the number one spot? is it because he is a Zuffa fighter? Cain has inferior standup and inferior ground game to both Overeem, and inferior ground game than Werdum.

If your arguement was somehow valid then why hasnt Tim Sylvia regained his number one spot, why hasnt Barnett regained his number one spot, howe about Alex E etc ect? All of these fighters has been on a winning streak. OR IS THE RULES SOMEHOW APPLIED DIFFERENTLY WHEN ITS A ZUFFA FIGHTER?
