He's 9-0 for him to get close to that he would have 22-3 over the next 6 years, that's more than four fights a year. He have to have no injuries in that time and fight every three months. Fedor's record is like Marciano's in boxing, it will probably never be matched. Will there be fighters of different generations that you can argue would be able to beat him in his prime, but that's part of the fun of combat sports, comparing guys of different eras.
I would be surprised if Cain even has over 30 fights in his career, with been limited to only been able to fight for the UFC he wont ever get the chance to fight much.

Cain is much like Fedor. They both come from a wrestling background and I think Cain is thew next Fedor. Cain is 6'0 240 and Fedor is 5'11" 230. They are both fast as hell on their feet and can both take u down at will. Fedor is the G.O.A.T. though. Emelianenko Fedor.

Fedor Emelianenko!!!!

I do believe that Cain could be the next Fedor... but that would depend on a lot of things. Will he match the long unbeated streak? Probably not. IF Cain is to be considered up there, the UFC title cannot be passed around like a lollipop.

I agree as well that Cain is similar in stature to Fedor, both are small for heavy weights (size and weight wise). It's that extra abilities they posses that make them stand above the competition.

Also, Cain said on many occassions that he believe Fedor is the greatest fighter on the planet.... I wonder how Dana reacts to hearing the truth from hiw #1 fighter

Being in the UFC has nothing to do with how many fights he will have. If he told the UFC he was willing to fight every 3 months he would. He is a huge draw right now. I think injuries will play a much bigger fight. Honestly Fedor must do something right in training to be able to go so long without serious injury.
