Umm no. Rich Franklin, Thiago Silva, you could even throw Stephan Bonnar in if you wanted. and 4 out of his 6 fights leading up to Machida Rashad KO'd or TKO'd his opponent. Rashad is the greatest striker but he is evolving.
But for sure Shogun(which i think he lost but either way), Rich Franklin, Thiago Silva.
