    Jones has surpassed GSP and Anderson, but Fedor may still be slightly ahead of him in achievement.

    Fedor was undefeated for over 10 years until he suffered his first real loss. In that span he beat notable fighters

    Mark Coleman x2
    Kevin Randleman
    Mirko Cro Cop
    Minotaur Nogeiura x3
    Tim Silvia
    Andre Arlovski
    Mark Hunt
    Heath Herring

    Jones is undefeated for 7 years, and has beaten of note

    DC
    Gus
    Texeira
    Sonnen
    Belfort
    Evans
    Rampage
    Machida
    Shogun

    Jones has a slightly better resume of beaten fighters, but I think that's mainly because he fought during a more stacked period. Fedor beat most of the best HW's of his era, and the few great HW's he didn't get to fight (Couture, Barnett, Mir) didn't favor nearly as well again common fighters and its safe to say Fedor was better than them.

    There wasn't a HW during his reign that was close to accomplishing what Fedor did.

    I believe Jones will surpass him very soon, possibly within the year, but Fedor's greatness cannot be understated. Over 10 years undefeated in MMA as a HW world champion is very hard to accomplish.

    Jones > Fedor.
    Jones would also beat Fedor in a fight.

    Nog.

    If Fedor didn't exist, Nog would be the GOAT. 31-2-1 pre-Mir. Both losses avenged.

    Fedor lost to Hendo, Hendo to Cormier, Cormier to Jones, Jones 3x better than Fedor and manhandles him.

    But seriously, Fedor never fought in the UFC, Anderson GOAT.

    Jones beat a murderer's row of ex champs in Shogun, Rampage, Machida, Rashad and Belfort and made it look easy.

    I'm not going to knock Fedor because his opposition wasn't as good, but I still favor Jones.

    Both Jones and Fedor have defeated an equal amount of former champions of their weight class (5), and made it look easy.

    Thing about the 10 years is, Fedor hag done serious gimme fights. Not like he purposely took fights to remain unbeaten, the amount of time just isn't really legit.

    Ex-champs but 3 of those guys were overweight MW's when they fought Jones who has some of the most massive proportions in the UFC. Shogun I believe would be better at 185 in terms of size.
