As far as his fight against Lombard goes, I am of firm belief that Lombard was not himself that night and had octagon jitters. Not saying it matters, not saying it's a good excuse, but look at Lombard's fight with Boetsch versus his fight with Palhares. Two completely different fighters almost.
Nope. Palhares was a gimme fight for Lombard. A guy who wouldn`t be able to get him down and has nothing standing.
I`d like to see Bisping vs Lombard just to put an end to the hype as Boetsch beat him by implementing the `Bisping` almost perfectly.
