    Werdum
    Overeem
    Hunt
    Shogun

    Okay. I mean guys like Lawler having 1 fight in pride doesn't normally define them as pride fighters, but if that's your definition.

    To me, this just illustrates how thin light heavyweight and heavyweight are.

    kind of this...
    If those guys are still active (and they are), then they should be out of their prime by now (which they are).
    The fact they are still top contenders merely exposes how thin those divisions really are...
