I'm pretty sure that he is as well. It's hard to say with certainty, because he hasn't showcased his abilities against a top competitor in so long. But if asked to pick the best fighter at HW, then I'd probably go with Fedor.I guess the question about Fedor really boils down to two things.
Do you think he's the best heavyweight in the world?
Personally, I do.
I agree with what you're saying to a point, but I personally have dropped him in my rankings.Do you think he deserves the World #1 ranking?
This is debatable, and its something that I can see the other side of the argument to, to a point.
Even if you were to drop Fedor from the #1 slot, I think you're going to be really hard pressed to find a guy based on credentials to put there though.
