That's basically what I was saying. I just meant that no matter who Fedor beats now anyway, the detractors will always find a way to discredit his win. Let's say Fedor beat an Overeem (which as Fedor fan I find that doubtful even now), people would say Overeem was an overrated HW who never beat a legit top 10 guy, latter part of which is true. I think even if he could beat Lesnar people would gripe. I see on Sherdog people's attitudes drastically changed after his beatdown at the hands of Cain.
When all is said and done, I guess all that matters for both guys at this stage of their careers is to get paid well. Both are legends of the sport and it should be a good fight.
