I agree with Nog and Cro Cop (competitive against Arlovski, Barnett and Rogers at most) but you're underselling Lesnar. Lesnar's a weird one in that he's such a throwback to style vs style - his wrestling is so good and he's such a physical freak that he could defeat most of the Strikeforce guys by taking them down and mauling them. Equally the likes of Sergei, Fedor or Overeem could easily knock him out if they can keep the fight standing.

Would really like to see Silva vs. Lesnar btw - would be cool to see Lesnar be the significantly smaller fighter.
