My top 3 UFC fighters of all time per weight class:

HW: Velasquez, dos Santos, Couture
LHW: Jones, Liddell, Evans(I would've put Tito for the early part of his career but he's tarnished his all time standing with his later career)
MW: Silva, Franklin, Belfort
WW: GSP, Hughes, Condit
LW: Penn, Edgar, Bendo
FW: Aldo, Mendes, multiple tie with 3-5 fighters for the last spot
BW: Cruz, Barao, Faber
FLW: Johnson, Benavidez, Dodson

Who would you put in there over Franklin? Weidman will probably surpass him eventually but not quite there yet. Henderson's had limited success in the UFC at both LHW and MW, but I can't put him in the top 3 of all time just for KO'ing Bisping and decisioning Paul Harris.

Almost every fighter on this list is currently active ... not exactly "all time".

To be honest, you're right.It's crazy because how dominate Anderson has been, and the fashion he destroyed Franklin, you kind of forget how good Franklin was at one point. He defintely deserves to be on that list... If Frank Shamrock stuck around a bit loner, I'm surewe'd be talking about him at MW as well..
