This, deepen the division or Lombard needs to get out and test himself in Strikeforce/UFC.

When I was down in Cuba last month... I asked around about Hector. Everyone wants to get into MMA and watch events because of him.

That has to be a good feeling

Wait, MMA is popular in Cuba? I guess that means Fidel and Raul have to start looking at allowing MMA in Cuba. Either that or making Cuban MMA fighters national heroes.

Ok, well I shouldn't have said 'everyone'

I meant mostly guys between 18-35ish whom looked to be in good shape and followed sports.

I'm sure it's on Youtube somewhere. Then there is also the websites out there. But anyways that demographic you just mentioned in Cuba is the major demographic in Cube just like everywhere else.

I talked to a guy who knows Lombard (not too well, but met him quite a lot of times) and according to him, he cannot work out why Lombard is still with Bellator. Apparently Lombard said ages ago he was off to the UFC, perhaps Bellator and CFC combined net him more money than he would in the UFC?

Is it just me or does that Vitale look like that Renato Laranja from the Master the system videos by Eddie Bravo?

Lombard needs to move his ass in another promotion.
There is nothing for him in Bellator.

If he relly wants to test himself, he really really must leave Bellator!!

BELIEVE!

Well question number one, how is he supposed to get out of his champion's clause in his contract? Second, should he go to Strikeforce or skip straight to the UFC? This is something that is a dispute.

You guys need to know he can't just leave Bellator. He has a champions clause in his contract and I doubt he is willing to throw a fight just to switch promotions.
