4) Orlin Norris (USA)
5) Arthur Williams (USA)
6) Nate Miller (USA)

Hard cruiserweight one no one really established in the current bunch. While the 93 bunch don't look the best.

1-1 ?

I'd go for todays cruisers to be slightly better then those guys. They seem more complete fighters these days.

1993-1
2010-1

Agree?
