You might also have to take into consideration that most swarming fighters fail before or as they reach the top level. The Primary reason being that they generally run into punches while landng their own. Frank Fletcher was a prime example of this. He was able to beat alot of fringe contenders on his way up but when he reached the upper level of the middleweight division he failed.

I don't know if you remember heavyweights like Clifford Etienne and Derrek Jefferson that overwelmed heavyweights right up til when they moved up to the level where defence was necessary to compete, and that is where they failed.
