Robbie Lawler is a top 3 MW

Solid wins over Frank Trigg, Scott Smith, Murilo Rua, and Niko Vitale, combined with being undefeated since 2006 put him ahead of every MW that isn't named Anderson Silva or Rich Franklin.

Those wins aren't solid enough to rank him that high. Most of those fighters are beyond their prime or washouts from other organizations.

No. Filho has a stronger list of wins while also being undefeated.

I don't put Lawler that high because he's that good, but the MW division is that bad.

Who has Filho beaten recently to deserve a top 3 spot?

I personally have him at #4, behind the two guys you mentioned and Filho. You can definitely make a case for him at #3 or even 2 (since Franklin seems like he's going to be sticking around LHW for a while too), I just see him sitting in behind those three guys.

The level of Filho's dominance over Sonnen this time around will really determine who I put at 3 and 4.

Eh. He's good but not enough fights against top 10 opponents to accurately rank him.

I'm not sure, even though I am a Lawler fan I don't know if he is top 3 yet but I do think he is definately top 5.

Didn't he almost lose to Scott Smith not that long ago?

I think Robbies a great fighter, but not quite top three right now. I need to see him fight more top ten fighters to really get a true ranking right now.

Would he beat Okami? Would he beat Marquardt? There are too many questions to just throw him that high up. Top 10, absolutely! Top 5, very good chance! Top 3, I just don't see it yet.

I'm not saying he could beat every middleweight, he just has a win streak noone can really match right now.

I think Cung, and Okami are in front of him right now.

I'd say he's about #5
