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.
The only thing wrong with him in the Boetsch fight is that he stepped into a cage with a barbarian on some high level ****ery.

Tim Boetsch always wins....even when he loses, Anderson would KO him and probably end up getting DQ'ed.

Palhares may have the worst striking defence in the entire UFC.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

Pretty hard to defend when you have a bull charging at you who has a low center of gravity with Olympic caliber Judo.

Tim effectively used his teep to keep em at bay + Lombard seemed pretty nervous. He just didn't get off with his punches even when he hurt em. Lombard reminds me of Falcao. That would be a funny match up.

head movement, some decent foot movement, faints, better reactions?

are you telling me that even Anderson Silva couldn't defend against Lombard's punches? Palhares ran straight back into the cage every time Hector threw something at him.

Give Lombard Bisping, in the future sometime, and I guarantee that Mike would put a striking clinic on Hector.

Poor defensive movement. His hands were up but Lombard's hands don't care for that. Hector is just a nasty puncher, very explosive and very skilled.

Also, does anyone know why Paul Harris is now called Paul Yaris? Is he sponsored by Toyota?

Tim Boetch put a clinic on Lombard. Bisping would beat the piss out of him. And I despise Bisping.

Have you?

He used movement to completely thwart Lombard's whole style and get the win. Didn`t walk into his punches like all Lombard`s opponents have up until this point.

There`s a reason they gave him Palhares. Because Palhares is the one guy in the UFC MW division who doesn`t have the movement or reach to nullify Lombards' UFC 3 era striking attack.

Bisping would absolutely maul him.

Everyone in the UFC MW division knows exactly how to beat Lombard now. Boetsch is a pure brawler and even he was able to shut Lombard's attack down.

Also, I just got an infraction for inferring that a poster here didn't watch a fight... So yeah, have fun with that... I'm not going to go crying about it to a mod though, so perhaps you'll escape unscathed.

I saw Lombard drop him with a toe kick to the liver and take him down twice and saw Boetsch throw a lot of kicks while looking like he was scared to death.

Hardly a "clinic"
