Hector Lombard latest addition to American Top Team roster


Cuban Judoka and former Australian resident Hector Lombard (17-2-1) has relocated to the U.S. and joined the growing roster of American Top Team.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was able to confirm Lombard's switch with American Top Team general manger Richie Guerrero.

A former Olympic competitor, Lombard will join the all-star cast of the Florida-based academy that includes new WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown as well as Thiago Alves, Marcus Aurelio, Jorge Santiago, Denis Kang, Gesias "JZ" Calvancante, Antonio Silva, Cole Miller, Alessio Sakara and Wilson Gouveia among others.

A four-year veteran of MMA, Lombard has fought in some of the world's biggest organizations -- including PRIDE, DEEP and Spirit MC -- but has not yet competed in the U.S.

Lombard has suffered just two defeats in his 20-bout career. Both were decision losses to world-class competition in Gegard Mousasi and Akihiro Gono. His wins include seven knockouts or TKO's as well as five submissions.

Lombard was set to make his U.S. debut against Scott Smith at EliteXC on Nov. 8. Financial struggles for the organization forced the cancellation of that show.

Now represented by First Round Management -- a Florida-based firm that also represents Brown, Alves, Aurelio, Silva, Sakara, Thiago Silva, Bobby Lashley and Yves Edwards, as well as several boxers and NFL veterans -- Lombard has been recently linked with the still-in-development Bellator Fighting Championships.

No official announcement have been made regarding Lombard's next bout.
Hopefully ATT can help get him signed with a nice organisation.
