I think the Guy is getting a bit overrated.
This guy has come nowhere near proving himself. He is one of the biggest can crushers in MMA. I mean his record is full of nobodies and a few somewhat decent wins. I mean seriously, the biggest name on his record is Mousasi who beat him.
He has literally defended his title against people who would never make it to the UFC period.
I will say with confidence, that if Lombard came to the UFC he could do well, but he would never tough gold again.
