    Chuck over Randy, Hendo (MW/LHW) over Fedor, and Jones over DC came to mind...any other examples of LHW fighters who defeated former or future HW champions?

    Does it count if said fighter moved up, like Randy?

    Hell Roy Jones wasn't even light heavyweight and went all the way up the HW to beat John Ruiz for a title back in the day in boxing.

    Overeem was a HW champ in Strikeforce and Chuck beat him. Vitor was a HW tournament champion, and lots of LHW's beat him.

    Hendo and Bader over Fedor?
