I see Boetsch is getting + 325 on one site... Tough to see why Hector is such a big favorite? It does seem like there is too much hype for Hector to be favored by that much

Wasn't it rumored he slugged it out with Barnett in sparring? People seem to bring that up to say how much a cunt Lombard is, but if true... Dude is a freakin beast! 185 pound man slugging it out with a 260 pound man!
If you can take Barnetts punches then I don't see how anybody at 185 could knock you out.
I think he'll put on an exciting fight. I think he wins this one, and I'm a fan of his aggressive/ style, but wish he wasn't quite so short. Oh well, even if he loses to taller guys sometimes, it'll be exciting to watch him try to get in and knock them out. I can't see Lombard laying down for anybody... Like a lot of fighters seem to do.

I was definitely wrong. I didn't think Lombard was unbeatable (cuz he is so damn short), but I didn't think it'd be boring as hell. What's wrong with this guy

What the **** was he thinking? He looked like he could have ended the fight at any stage if he threw a big combo and backed tim up.

What a way to **** up your big debut

He lost, but he didn't really get beat. He landed the only blows that looked damaging, but Boetsch soundly out landed him in general, so I guess the decision was fair. He looked awful. I don't know what happened. He is much better than what he showed tonight.

Lombard must burn off some muscle and start fighting at welterweight. In addition to fighting people a bit closer to his own natural size, having less bulk would probably help his cardio too.

But anyway, the point is, what an epic fail. A boring, shit fight where a muscled dwarf got prodded to defeat by a B-list pro. Dismal.

Anderson Silva next? Bahahahahahahaha.

Glad the world is waking up to the farce this hype train was. Like i said and il say it again this guy is a professional can crusher. Nothing more or less. He's about 2 fights away from the Bush leagues.

Lombard got exposed much like Fedor got exposed once he moved to the big leagues.
