Lesnar?... 3 times!

Hardy? beat 1 top 15 guy only.

Cote? ummm

Leites? Gets battered by Marquart and won via fouls.

It goes on...

I agree whole heartidly with your list with exception of Rua.... he's the best LHW in the world and PRIDE proved that. He didn't have a great start in UFC, but he was also injured and never did the proper path to rehabilitation to be 100% again.
