JDS is the only one that comes to mind.
Couture? Arlovsky kind of?
well couture in the sense he won a belt so many times. you could say the same for bj after losing the WW belt.
frankie's still going strong.
bendo's definitely still in his prime
machida dropped a weight class and still seems very prime
franklin took big fights and remained relevant at least as an entertaining fighter
cain retook the belt
(lesnar definitely faded)
(hughes seemed sort of irrelevant after losing to GSP but still had some big fights)
