Yeah, Goldberg said it multiple times, but I mean his true skills of defending himself against a BJJ practitioner... Just never saw his Bellator fights

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

He's a 4th Dan Judoka and former member of the Cuban Olympic Judo team. That's sort of as high as you can get in competitive Judo. BUT that doesn't tell that much about his ground skills. In Judo you don't do that much ground fighting. There are submissions, but in competition it's mostly mat holds (as you can win if you pin someone down on his back for a certain amount of time). In particular in upper weight classes.

Lombard has BJJ black belt though. So he won't be like a fish out of water when it hits the ground.

He has a black belt in BJJ as mentioned above.

Belcher released a webinar of how he defended Palhares' leg locks so I'm guessing Lombard might have taken a look at that, it's no secret what he's going to do, and for all the crap Lombard gets for being a can crusher not one of Palhares victories still fight in the UFC Middleweight division, and only Dan Miller remains employed.

Palhares is the most mentally weak fighter I've ever seen and just gives up if his one trick doesn't work, not to mention he's a dirty fighter so hopefully he gets what's coming to him and Lombard blasts him.

Lombards base should be too strong for Palhares to ever get a take down. Palhares' striking is wild but powerful. That wildness will probably lead him right into a Lombard KO hook.

If Lombard KOs him in the first, he'll get a title shot.

Would love to see Alan Belcher tear Lombard to shreds.

Frankly I'm shocked they didn't let him fight Silva after he lost to Tim. Why not? You've got 3 other divisions where you gave a guy coming off a loss (or two!) a title shot. Why should Lombard be punished for losing to Boetsch? So unfair.

Palhares has sub'd blackbelts before.

On paper Lombard's skills look great. Olympian, although means a lot less when it was over a decade ago. No one would call Hendo an elite Greco guy now that can toss guys around.

Has a BJJ BB, not sure from who...but he is probably at least solid.

He has power, but I think his striking is very overrated

Well, ya see, it is really very simple. Lombard was a Bellator fighter, no casual fans knew of him. And I doubt many more did after that fight. Lombard wouldn't be a draw. So the UFC has no need to give him a title shot.

I try a few ways to embed a youtube video. But I never remember how. Perhaps I refuse to learn. If a Mod would be so kind to do this for me.


Palhares is a humble dude. Always root for him.
