I think his streak in HW is unprecedented and will be for a while. I believe t's the hardest weight class to hold the belt.
It's subjective, it could easily be argued either way. But Fedor's from Russia, I'm very biased.

If this happened (and I don't think it will), Hendo then WOULD have a win on the same level as Fedor's over Nog and Crocop.

In fact, I'd probably say a better win considering the scenario is that Dan KOs Jones, rather than outpoints him. Jones has lost one round that I have seen, while beating some top fighters. For an old man with severe size disadvantages to take the crown and turn the MMA world on its head would be something very, very special indeed.

And that's just the cherry on top of a cake that already includes wins over Fedor, Shogun, Wanderlei, Belfort and Nog.

It would also add a UFC title to the titles won in Pride and Strikeforce, and the tournaments won in the UFC and Rings.


At least would make him a legit contender for the GOAT position, no?

I have him 5th right now. Could easily see him being 2nd with a KO over Jones. It would be an interesting debate how people ranked Fedor, Hendo, Anderson, GSP and Big Nog from 1 to 5 if that happened.

Jones has only lost a handful of rounds against the most stacked weightclasses' top tier. The current top guys are far more well rounded than the top guys in Fedor's prime imo. A KO would be a considered a fluke and thats the only reason I wouldn't rate up #1. If he could beat em twice he would be GOAT imo
