Nogueria(2004)-decision win

There are exactly none guys that he has beaten in the top ten currently. Well, Nog might be scratching it... but barely.

Between Fedors two best conquests, A.A and Timmy, they are a combined 6-4 in their last ten bouts with notable wins over, Vince Lucero, Buentello, Pudz, Jason Riley, Big Country(2008), and Rothwell. And losses to Ray Mercer, Bigfoot, and Rogers
i'm not a fan of Fedor, but you can't deny Arlovski and Sylvia were both ranked top 10 when they fought.

If i remember right Arlovski was ranked top 3.

It's not Fedor's fault that the guys fell of the rankings, he fought them when they were supposed to be elite, can't blame him for that.
