I was a bit on the Lombard hype train ONLY because he called out "The Spider" and wanted to see the match up very badly. I think Lombard could give anybody in the MW a run for their money. He's like the Cuban version of what's his face...Falcao.

What I'm trying to say is fighting in other organizations can be a bit deceiving even to the fighters themselves. I truly believe Lombard believed his own hype, Fedor (legitimate GOAT HW), all Pride/Dream/SF/IFL champs had a very tough transition into the UFC.

IE: Read a two time NCAA tennis champ get slaughtered by a lower ranked pro player on the ATP tour. That's kind of the level when you compare other orgs to the UFC. It's simply that much better.

So while I think Larkin showcased a great fight it's merely marketing.
