    DC is superior to Fedor in all of those categories except off of his back. And Fedor sure gets a lot of credit for submitting guys with zero submission defense

    Based just on HW accomplishments, DC is fringe top 5.

    Fedor,
    Werdum
    JDS
    Stipe
    Nog/DC

    Of course, add in his LHW resume and he’s more accomplished than all of them besides Fedor which is damn close.

    1)Fedor
    2)Big Nog
    3)Werdum
    4)Cain
    5)Miocic
    6)Filipovic
    7)Dos Santos
    8)Cormier

    I have Cormier as the 2nd GLHWOAT and way higher (top 10) on the all-time greats list than Miocic and most of the HWs above him.

    DC's HW resume is better than his LHW resume and LHW has produced as much ATG champions in its history as HW. DC has to be higher on your list at HW, at the very least.

    Accomplishment wise stipe is probably top 5 and dc is probably lower top 10 (7-10 range)

    Skillwise dc is top 3 imo

    It depends on whether we're talking about best (i.e., highest peak) or greatest (i.e., most accomplished). I'll assume we're talking about greatest:

    Fedor
    Big Nog
    JDS
    Werdum
    Stipe

    And I'd probably put a few more guys ahead of DC. The reality is that DC simply doesn't have enough of a resume at HW. In his first run at HW, he had some quality wins, but he left the division before facing the top guys. As it stands, he only has 2 top 5 wins at HW (Stipe and Lewis).

    It's tough. If we are talking talentwise I think DC is #1. Accomplishment-wise he doesn't have the resume, although he's undefeated and completely dominant.

    Top 5 for me in no particular order:

    • Fedor
    • Nog
    • Werdum
    • Stipe
    • DC
    Just missing out are JDS and Cain. Stipe had a better title run than either, and DC was way more dominant than both and has a better chin.

    DC beat the shit out of special sauce Bigfoot right after he destroyed Fedor.

    Cormier loves eating head kicks, body shots, knees, leg kicks, etc. He's a far easier target than Fedor, who could block Cro-cop's body/head shots during his heyday.

    And it doesn't take great armbars to catch Jon the way Vitor did. Vitor himself wasn't known for having great armbars, nor he was as slick as Fedor.

    All in all, Fedor matches a lot better vs. Jones than DC.

    DC's first 7 fight were against, who the fuck is that guy. Then he fought Monson who people at least know. He fought some Dion dude who I will probably have to google at some point after the Monson fight around when he fought Barnett. And yes, I had to look it up because, who the fuck are those guys again?

    He spent a bunch of time cutting down to beat up lhw's and is just recently back fighting in his own weight class, lol. Point is, everyone has a few cans here and there.
