You say Belcher can avoid Lombard's striking... do you mean he can beat him in the pocket? Because I guarantee you he can't. Outpoint him from the outside? You're looking at a repeat of the Tim fight.

Striking with Lombard is a case of get knocked out or look like a ***** trying not to. For me, Anderson is the only exception to this rule in the division.
Alexander Shlemenko is another exception to the rule.
