Fedor still has plenty to prove in my opinion. Not as the best heavyweight at the moment as I think that's clear. But to call him the greatest (or even P4P #1) his level of opposition must be better. Hong-man Choi, middleweight Linland and Mark Coleman just don't cut it.
He's beaten nogeira twice, that's impressive (currently the UFC HW champion, ex-Pride HW champ until fedor beat him). He can retire now and would be already considered the best MMA Heavyweight of all time. Give credit where it's due, he is THAT good.
He would mop the floor with randy couture, and beat anyone on the UFC roster. Only challenge left for him at HW is probably arlovski or barnett. Other than that, I don't see anyone with a chance in hell.
