Awesome, I'm really excited to see how Lombard fares in the UFC. I think they should start him off with the winner of Belcher/Paulhares for a title shot.

Belcher's a fringe top ten fighter and Palhares hasn't beat anyone good, ever. He shouldn't even be considered a contender.

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.

Lombard vs Okami would be nifty.

I'd go Lombard/Franklin or Lombard/Markes, the way I see it Okami has taken a beating and if he beats Okami people will have excuses. Brian Stann I think that's a dog of a fight for him, Lombard will likely just ragdoll and submit him. I would hate to see Brian Stann get knocked out of the top ten because of a stylistically horrible matchup for him.

My picks would be Rich Franklin or Ronny Markes. Markes/Lombard is a win/win as the winner of that fight moves into the top ten and title contention. Rich Franklin is both a big name that Lombard needs and Franklin is more durable than Stann and could go five rounds. Lombard's cardio is a question and giving him Franklin could lead to a MOTY or CBOTY.

I'd prefer to see him against a wrestler. I want to know if he's really as good as some people make him out to be.
