Fedor had more ways to beat you than to blitz you . His patience against cro cop was phenomenal . His ground work against nog and herring was fantastic . I think the best odds to beat fedor in his prime was actually to blitz him . The problem was that he was good enough to hang with people at their strengths while also being good enough to beat them at their weaknesses . I think your analysis is off but I do agree that GSP and Jones were more likely to win safely than he was .
