Great fight, and I'd pick Lombard. Is Munoz available right now? If so, they should make this fight straight away.

I think Lombard earns a title shot with two wins, one win in the right circumstances. I think he's one of the few guys looking at Anderson Silva and genuinely thinking he can beat him. That alone makes him a lethal addition to the division.

Nope they're matching Weidman/Munoz on UFC on Fuel 4 four days after Sonnen/Silva.

I was always a critic of his record, but I am really excited to see him test his skills against the best.

I could see Munoz, Franklin or Stann being a good fight. Munoz is booked to fight Weidman and Franklin is booked to fight Cung Le so Stann is the only likely one of the bunch to get the fight.

Give him a real top ten fighter in Stann, if he passes that then consider him for a title shot, but beating the winner of Belcher/Palhares won't do much for him.
In my eyes, Lombards record is worse then Harris or Belchers.

I'm sure both of them ( and many others ) would have gone unbeaten if they faced the same competition as Lombard.

I'm keen to see him tested and hope he turns out to be the real deal. But to suggest either Paul or Alan are not a good enough test for him is ridiculous.

Lombard is exciting, happy to see him in the UFC at last. Looks like Stann is available for him which should be a great fight.

He's one of the guys I'd be interested to see against Silva just cos of his aggression. Lombard, Palhares and Munoz are the only guys I wanna see face Silva at middleweight.

Same here. Now it's time to prove himself.

I'm hoping Stann.

I want to see him fight Paul Harris personally. (As was said in page one) I think it'd be the ultimate test for him before challenging for the title.

But, as for first fights, I want to see him fight Leben.
