You are so wrong about this I don't know where to begin.

Outside of the UFC you had Alister, Barnett, Werdum, BigFoot, Brett Rogers, Daniel Cormier probably others I'm overlooking. Again a handful of big names and some up and comers.
There where as many if not more challenges outside of the UFC as in. Fedor was not ducking anyone. In my opinion, he just didnt want to work for someone who sent much of the last several years shitting all over Fedor.
None of us will ever know exactly why a deal couldn't be worked out but suggesting The UFC had the best heavyweights and Fedor was ducking them is comical. Hell all you have to do is look at the UFC's ranking and you'll see 5 or so of the top 10 are guys that were in Strikeforce when Fedor signed.
