Hector Lombard vs Anderson Silva thoughts.
Well, the only true test in the middleweight division that remains for Silva is maybe the hard-hitting Hector Lombard... if he wins his debut of course. Anderson has demolished everyone in that division and many think Lombard can present the only true test for the champion. I say NO to that!
Yes, Lombard possesses skills that make him the only threat to the throne when we compare him to the other fighters in that division, but after the Chael rematch i don't think there is a challenger who can match the quickness, acuraccy and KO power of The Spider. That guy can beat every middleweight on the planet without breaking a sweat. I still can't believe he has such KO power in his hands. His straight punches are like no other in the business. Lombard will have the same fate as the others... my prediction is TKO via strikes in the second if we see that fight in the future.
