Brock also beat 2 UFC champs, does that not matter? The 2 champs Fedor beat left the UFC because they were losing in the UFC. You make it sound like they left at the top of there game (seriously, does Tim Silvia even have a top game?).
Sylvia lost to Nogueira and left. It's not like Dana was completely disinterested in re-signing him, it's just newer, more exciting fighters were coming in. Arlovski was on a 3 fight win streak when left the UFC and had won 5 straight before facing off against Fedor. I'm not here to argue whihc former champs were better, but when Fedor was at his prime in Pride the whole argument was Pride (Fedor) vs. UFC (Sylvia).
But your point is valid, except for Min-Soo Kim, Brock has only fought top competition. I'm not looking for an argument whether Herring istop competition, but he's been around for a while and is a main card fighter.
It comes down to this: everyone is comparing a veteran to a new fighter. Brock has dominated pretty much everyone he's faced, but after only 4 opponents, how much can we really assume?
Honestly, if they ever fight it will do nothing to calm this shitstorm. Brock winning would never stop the Fedor love, like mentioned before, he'll have been "past his prime".
I am really looking forward to Brock facing Carwin, Cain and Dos Santos. If he walks through all three of these guys (best up and commers imo), i'll be the first to give the man his due.
