Default hector lombard!

like the way he's talking! has he gota fight lined up next or not?

Letís cut the bullshit, letís be honest, they wonít give me Anderson Silva. We have to be realistic and talk about things that might happen. Iíve got to take one fight at a time and one-by-one I can take them out and by the end of the year people are going to say he deserves the title shot. I want it to just be my hard work. I want people to say that no one deserves the title more than him. I just donít want to fight guys that they say, ĎOh that was a easy match-up for him.í I want to fight the hardest match-up. I wish they (the UFC) could go now and make a pool of the toughest guys at 84kg that no one wants to fight and I want to fight that guy. I want to fight who the UFC and the people believe is the toughest guy out there. Not many people want to fight Palhares. Before we had the fight people were saying: ĎHector is gone, Palhares is taking Hectorís leg back to Brazil.í I would like to fight Chris Weidman, heís a big name. Iíve been asking for (Yushin) Okami, Iíve been asking for Okami but they (UFC) wonít give him to me because of his chin. Okami has no chin, he canít cop the punches. And whereís Jake Shields? Heís been around forever, he beat Dan Henderson. Those are the guys I want to fight.Ē

UFC did end up giving him Okami, despite his chin, believe it or not.

There's a thread about that fight halfway down the first page.

I believe most saw it as a even fight with two possible outcomes one is paul harris dives at his leg and tear it off or Hector getting the KO

Middleweight division is weak as .. A lot of weak chins in it to so Lombard should atleast work his way to a title shot .

This. But thats what happens when you've made a career out of beating B class fighters in Bellator.
