He used movement to completely thwart Lombard's whole style and get the win. Didn`t walk into his punches like all Lombard`s opponents have up until this point.

There`s a reason they gave him Palhares. Because Palhares is the one guy in the UFC MW division who doesn`t have the movement or reach to nullify Lombards' UFC 3 era striking attack.

Bisping would absolutely maul him.

Everyone in the UFC MW division knows exactly how to beat Lombard now. Boetsch is a pure brawler and even he was able to shut Lombard's attack down.

Also, I just got an infraction for inferring that a poster here didn't watch a fight... So yeah, have fun with that... I'm not going to go crying about it to a mod though, so perhaps you'll escape unscathed.
