Yea a Bisping fight makes little sense. If he beats Vitor he should probably be right in line to get a shot. If he loses, probably by big KO, I doubt they give him Lombard off a big win. They can do that fight down the line.

Lombard vs. Belcher would be sweet, if Belcher gets past Okami.

Toquihno had virtually no chance of getting this fight to the ground I found it comical that people think Hector Lombard's Olympic level Judo meant nothing for his submission grappling ability.

He was nothing but a giant target dummy.

There's the Lombard we've been looking for. I'm now certain that it was nerves that got the better of him. A fight against Vitor would be very entertaining. He should fight against Stann instead of Wand vs Stann.

He seemed pretty content to sit in Paul Harris's guard until he was stood up though. I don't think he really wanted to get into a BJJ match with Paul Harris.

And I would like seeing Lombard vs. Stann rather than Wandy, I just don't think I could bear another vicious KO of Wandy without him hanging them up, and I think against a beast of a puncher like Stann that it would only be a matter of time.

Awesome. Hector had no respect for Palhares' leg kicks, which were hard, chased him down and knocked him out.

I don't call Lombard a Silva-killer, but IMO he is a handful for everyone in the division. Something WAS wrong in the Tim fight, supposedly more than one thing, and for me his happier demeanor before this fight proves that.

I hope Hector gets another fight signed quickly.

I am very happy the way this fight went down. I was quite let down as many were during his first fight in the UFC and am happy he was able to play his game; albeit against someone he very well should beat 9/10 times.

There are a bunch of matchups I'd like to see Lombard in. Belfort would be lots of fun, as would Wanderlei or even Cung Le. Haha, I just want him in there against brawlers.
I think Bisping could dominate him with technique and precision, but also feel that Hector could plod forward and catch him.

Either way, enjoyable fight tonight and I wish Hector continued success.

Yeah I agree something was wrong in his first fight, even
Tho I still had him winning. In my eyes he's 2-0 in
The UFC now .

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

Palhares is so scary-looking Great fight, awesome KO. Lombard-Bisping would be a good one.

- TJ Dillashaw - Gegard Mousasi - Vitor Belfort - Michael Johnson - Alistair Overeem -

I'm kind of sad Lombard messed up and performed like he did in his debut. I always love a good build up and this loss took a lot away from me, just like the Diaz-Condit fight did.

So who's next for him? Should Bisping get past Vitor, he get's the shot.
