The problem is that many of the contenders keep getting knocked off by the "old" guys.

Ufc needs to get better scouting, or even have more tufs for lhw and hw. Seems every single tuf is for the lower weight divisions. Ufc definitely needs more talent In these divisions. They should also stop encouraging every single guy to drop down to the lowest weight possible.

Joe Silva should be blamed.
He has signed no LHWs recently.

some of the past top fighters are now past their prime or moved to a different division

I don't think it's weak.

I would have no problem with Gus, Glover, Rashad, or Davis fighting for the title right now.

Its a natural cycle. Remember when LHW was basically a murderer's row of talent?

That talent got old or dropped weight. Hard to build up that many huge fighters in a time period of a couple years.
