Default Hector Lombard

Why dont the UFC have him? They have everyone else

Do any of you give him a chance against Mr Anderson?

We will never know how got he really is if he doesnīt sign with the ufc but age isnīt on hsi side if he wants to prove that he is a legit fighter he has to do it now. but why should he he fights bums which he destroys in less than 1 round and make probably pretty much money since he is bellators best fighter

Maybe he has a contract with Bellator and cant sign over to UFC until it expires?
Or maybe he just enjoys fighting bums

Like in the case of Aoki and Mousasi, he represents a threat to the current convenient ufc establishment

Hes the champ and hes stuck in his contract.


See Eddie Alvarez.. who is no longer champ and the UFC is now trying to sign.


LOL at the ufc thinking Aoki and Mousasi are threats. They tried to sign Mousasi before.
UFC wants the best fighters.. period. They've shown it over and over again.

This honestly wouldn't surprise me. He's supposedly a bit of a douchebag in the gym as well.

I want to see Lombard on the big stage. Lorenzo said the UFC are interested in him. The power and the grappling skills make him interesting. Plus he is a unit and we always need to try and find a challenge for Anderson.

I think he has the ability to go far in the UFC, he certainly has the skills on paper and he's shown serious skills against lesser competition. It remains to be seen if he can do it in the big time if he does end up in the UFC.

I vaguely remember hearing Joe Rogan mentioning it for some reason and I had a look and found a couple of blogs/articles and interviews saying pretty much the same thing as Erik Paulson does in that video. He loves to dish it out but he cracks the shits when people give it back.

Well, whatever people say about Lombard, if he stood there trading punches for 32 ****ing minutes with Josh Barnet as Paulson said, he must be a ****ing monster.
