Or not throw kicks. Okami would have had a hard time getting TDs early if he wasn't catching kicks. Lombard got up easily the first few times too.
Lombard is just overrated like many thought he was back in Bellator. It is just evident now. Scary looking. Good paper skills. But his standing game is just looping haymakers. His bottom game isn't there. His Judo is good, but a strong wrestler could exploit it. His striking is the main thing, it is just scary, and can work like a charm vs. Bellator bums. But not UFC fighters. All power, very little technique.
