Dan Henderson has recently become the first fighter to reach the Top 50 in three divisions: Heavyweight (#46), Light Heavyweight (#8), and Middleweight (#4). There are 46 fighters (including Dan) who are on two divisional Top 50s.
Norifumi Yamamoto is his closest, active competitor as he is in three Top 55s. A good streak at Bantamweight would see him join Dan. However Yamamoto is not in any Top 25 (or 30). Evan Tanner also shares Yamamoto’s feat, but is in a Top 25 @ Middleweight (#20).
When expanding to Top 60 as the qualifier, Jeremy Horn and Akihiro Gono make the cut. Expanding to Top 75 adds four more fighters (Vitor Belfort, Jeff Curran, BJ Penn, Anderson Silva).
