Also for him to claim a fractured sternum, makes the Athletic Commission look like sh*t for clearing him to fight. But surely if Lombard turned out to be healthy and just had an 'off night' the Commission could take legal action for slander. As to clear a fighter a fractured sternum would be gross negligence on their part. So I personally wouldn't run that risk.
Bet Lombard just had an 'off night'.
