Barnett's an interesting one. I mean Spike could make him an offer to come compete for both Bellator and TNA lol.

10-0 in the UFC against Werdum, Struve, Cro-Cop, Yvel, Gonzaga, Nelson, Carwin, Velasquez, Overeem and either Barnett or Cormier.

Undefeated in five years if he fights them both in 2012.

Fedor has three recent stoppage losses in a row.

The argument could certainly be made.

Even if he does he's still a moron anyway
He's basically working for Dana now.

He'd still lack a win as impressive as Fedor's over Nogueira.

Inherited contract though. Plus with Strikeforce he's still allowed to moonlight and do pro-wrestling. Now the money on offer for going to the UFC would be far greater so he'd be a moron to turn down an offer but it wouldn't surprise to me see the deal run into difficulties.

So who would that be? Who would give JDS a win that is comparable to Fedor's win over Nog.

If JDS never has a fight like Fedor versus Nog, how long does he have to continue to win by beating the likes of Carwin, Cain, Overeem, Cormier, until he's considered the GOAT?

It depends on what happens in the future. Velasquez could become that win if Velasquez goes on to defeat everyone he faces outside of Dos Santos.

Carwin could go on to be that type of win if he can steam roll the contenders the way he has most of the people on his resume.

Then, there could be someone else. Barnett is a little old, but he may still be a major force to be reckoned with. There's also Cormier.

Don't see what relevance this has with what I said. Fedor beat the second best heavyweight the world has ever seen. He did it not once but twice. And it wasn't like Nogueira entered one of the fights barely able to walk like Velasquez did in what was JDS's best win.

I'm not saying I couldn't see JDS overtake him Fedor in due course but I think he's more than two victories away.

I am really not sure at all who wins between Cormier and Barnett. I have always liked Barnett as a fighter and I think he could do some real damage in the UFC, but stylistically I think Cormier is a bad matchup for him, what with his excellent wrestling pedigree and really good boxing for MMA. Reluctantly, I feel I have to go with a Cormier win.

Then I think Cigano beats Cormier.

JDS is the #1 heavyweight in the world.

Cormier is the truth and the future, but this will be Overeem's year on top.
