It means if you compare two fighters from different weight classes, which one would be the best if weight wasn't a factor or if you were to magically 'equalize them' to the same weight. In other words, if you took BJ Penn and 'grew him' to Fedor's weight, with the same proportions and skills, then you would compare them to see who is better.
