Fact of the matter is he is definitely unproven as an elite MW in my eyes.
1.) It's the MW division how many "elite" fighters are out there, most move up to 205.

2.) Mousasi didn't win, the judges gave him a close decision. If that's an MMA fight under unified rules Lombard wins or draws that match.

3.) The combined record of those "cans" Taylor (20-7), Vitale (29-9), Doerkson (47-16), Shlemenko (42–7) - 138-39 that's a win percentage of 71%. That's in line with the UFC champions who are between .706 -.806

You are reaching here. Mousasi won that fight, color it however you like, but Mousasi did win. Taylor and Doerkson both got cut from the UFC because they couldnt hack it. Vitale has losses to multiple guys that also got cut from the UFC. Facts are facts and Lombard lost to the only top ten guy he fought.

This is one of those things where Lombard probably is comfortable where he is. He dominates in Bellator and more than likely is happy where he is. He's not going to move unless he has to.
