Lombard isn't very good at cutting the cage off. He's a counter striker. Most of his KO's come from when his opponent attacks him and he finds an opening on the inside to land a brutal short counter. Guys that like to stand and bang infront of him are tailor made for Lombard.

Okami isn't the type to rush in and engage on the feet. He's a very conservative fighter and will look to pump out the jab en route to a UD victory. I don't think Okami has any thing for Hector in the grappling department. Lombards base is absolutely ridiculous, he shouldn't have a problem stuffing any TD attempts from Okami and that's when he should look to land the KO. When he's seperating from the clinch, activate berserker mode and put Okami down with a flurry of punches against the cage.

Tough fight to call. Okamis conservative, boring style will cause Hector problems to land his killer shots. Grappling will be neutralised. Okami is ridiculously slow how ever, so Hector should be able to find the KO at some point within three.
