S'all I'm saying. There are other guys out there capable of standing with Hector and actually engaging and being successful, Vitor Belfort probably being one of them.
Yes anyone in the UFC MW division right now. And I'm sure if Lombard vs Schlemenko(SP?) happened next week, Lombard would knock him out.

We'll see how Belfort looks against Bisping, I favor Lombard over him at this point in time.

I still need to see more. An awful fight against Boetsch and out striking Palhares still isn't a great indication of where this guy is at. Glad he won though so we can see him against better opponents.

I don't know how you're so sure of that. Schlemnko has a rock solid chin, has brutal stand up and has been riding a 9 fight winning streak since his loss to Hector. I personally can't wait to see him smash Falcao.

See more what? Is he not even top ten?

Also I don't like this "out striking" Palhares, he beat the crap out of him in two minutes and knocked him. He rocked him, cut him, and knocked him out in 120 seconds.

Palhares earned a top five guy (loser of Bisping/Belfort) with that win and his career a title shot.

Hector would certainly be favorite in this hypothetical fight.

Obviously, but I don't see the KO coming.

Now we're matching up the guy who was supposed to come in and fight Anderson with Shlemenko?

No doubt, Lombard can get 10 KOs in a row if we give him easy fights.

He's getting paid to fight top guys. And he'll lost to all of them.

Do you kinda understand my point and why people are reacting negatively to your comments? Why not make your predictions for TUF finale now so people can look back at you in hindsight?

And honestly if your that good at predicting bet some money, I make decent money overall betting on fights and I really only win a little over 50% but usually only bet on guys that are heavy underdogs who I think are stylistically bad match ups or are greatly undervalued or opponents overvalued. I did lose a pile on Penn/Rory though and lost a bit on G-Sot as well without realizing there was bad blood, once I saw that I kinda had a feeling he would fight retarded and lose me my money.

He's dealt with much sturdier fighters in the past. The only variable in this could be the travel/home arena advantage.

Benson is more off a rangy fighter that has poor hands and throws a lot of kicks, against a guy like Frankie who is even quicker and has good leap amateur boxing skills, it's a tough matchup.

But Nate isn't that type of fighter, he's a plodding combination fighter with no real foot or hand speed. Not to mention he has nowhere near the defensive wrestling chops of Benson.


Hell, Nate struggles against the same type of fighter. Benson will muck it up on the feet with three thousand feints and an occasional leg or body kick and grab a clinch and get some takedowns while surviving some submissions.

The only way I can really see Nate winning this fight is if he sweeps and gets Benson's back and instead of just threatening and controlling and winning the round, he just stops him right there.

If he doesn't get the finish then, Benson will probably win.

I wouldn't bet against Ben.

The look of these two guys is kinda weird. Look at the ass of Hector Lombard and his short legs. The you look at Paul Harris the guy does simply look like a guy where somebody just attached the head on top of level of his shoulders. Hey the neck is missing...
