Ghaffarri  was the second best wrestler on the planet  at 130 kg from 1995-1998.  He owned Mureiko and was more consistent than Hector. Not to mention he kept Rulon out whenever he competed.  

Rulon's career was interesting. Won gold on a technicality. Took advantage of the vacuum post Karelin in 2001.  Never won gold again and ended career with bronze. He was losing to Lopez by this point and Baroev beat him as well at worlds.  Rulon was never Mr. Unbeatable. From Ghaffarri on to his later losses. 

Bryers has the world win and a win against Lopez.
