Belegorn has just left Hobbiton.
When Hurin left Doriath and died "as the mightiest of warriors of mortal Men" [Silmarillion ch. 22] I do not think this included the High Men who would arise later on. There are several instances in the 3rd Age where other descendants of the people whom the Edain came from are compared to the Dúnedain and are like children next to them. For example, Faramir is seen by Eowen as basically untouchable by any warrior of Rohan.

There is an instance when the Dúnedain make their first return to M-E and even though they appeared as Elf-lords in bearing to the Edain they met, the Edain themselves would not look out of place had they gone to Númenor.
