Primo Mirko didn't need to move to LHW. He is still among TOP 5 HW all time.

I'm not sure how anyone could call that weak.
Actually much more powerful divison than today. Just imagine Cain in JDS in Pride in that divison (and they were all in their Primes)... suddenly they wouldn't be considered a stand out...

If we look at his era, HW was his best choice since they did not have the talent that LHW had back in Crocops era. LHW one of the deepest weight classes and one where he would lost some of his speed advantage he had on the HW strikers.

He lost to Randleman once, so his dominance is in the air at LHW.
He was big name in K-1, and technically he is one of the best (if not the best) striker in MMA, so I don't really see Shogun, Murilo, Wandy, Chuck, Hendo, Belfort, Rampage, Overeem (lol) and others beating Mirko if they trade shots with him, even if he has not the same sick power than he had at HW (still, he would LHK lots of guys)

The only ones as I can imagine winning against a LHW Mirko, are Arona if he outgrapples him and Rogerio Nogueira if he emulates his brother with a sub.
