I agree with you. I think Fedor has been the rightful #1 p4p, but now guys like GSP, BJ Penn and Anderson Silva comes up with winning formulas of their own, looking awesome in the process. More fighters than Fedor nowdays look unbeatable against top competition (and since Fedor's top competition is not as big, they get ahead of him in the p4p rankings IMO) I also think Fedor, while he looked awesome against Sylvia, still looked lackluster against Lindland, Hunt and HMC. He launched his trademark overwhelm-with-powerpunching-and-then-murder-the-shit-scared-opponent-on-the-ground tactic (see Goodridge, Zulu and Ogawa). A brilliant display of psychological warfare and punching power indeed, but the fight could easily have taken much longer and be grueling for Fedor.
My top 5 p4p are:
1. Anderson Silva
3. Fedor/BJ Penn (whoever the better one of them p4p are)
4. Fedor/BJ Penn (whoever the worse of them p4p are)
5. Aoki? Big Nog? I'm too much of an Aoki and Big Nog nuthugger to answer this. If Aoki wins the LWGP, then he's the #5 p4p fighter in my book.
