Just for fun sake, if the UFC had no rounds what so ever and adopted back the no round or time limit rules... i think absolutely the ruler of the lighter weight classes (LW & FW) would have to be Frankie Edgar right? Even over Aldo and Bendo just based on the fact he accelerates as a fighter and has amazing cardio over anyone in those divisons i believe. So hypothetically if he fought everyone in those divisons and they didn't stop until one man was left standing... i think edgar is the man still standing.

What about you?

GSP would be tough. It would suck to get peppered with that swift jab for and endless amount of time.

So we're assuming that Edgar is fighting with the current ruleset, no foot strikes to a downed opponent, and there is an unlimited time period.
The UFC would always have a time period with a ruleset.. or else the fight could go on for hours and the UFC normally has a time schedule to stick to.

So if we assume the UFC are saying they have a 30 minute one round rule, and if it hits the finish? How is it scored? A draw if it hits the end like Gracie/Shamrock? Or PRIDE, the judges score an overall winner?

A lot of considerations but if its a 30 minute, unified rules fight, scored as a whole fight, I think Maynard would have beaten Edgar in there first fight, and Bendo would have won theres. If we score the 25 minute fights on a whole, the only real significant things to score are Edgars face and Edgar getting dropped.

If time was unlimited yes Edgar would be the champion, if you're scoring a 1 round less than 30 minute fight, the judges would favor the guy who didn't get beaten to hell for 60 seconds.
