That's true, which is why I always put a disclaimer with these things. But I prefer to list them like this because nowadays a 'name' fighter might be someone who was rated in the past. If WALDO, for instance, beat up a comebacking Hasim Rahman now, it'd probably be seen as significant. So I make sure to list all the oldies' 'name' fighters too, just to make it fair if anyone were to compare.
