That's a sick free card. I'm glad I got FUEL. I also love how quickly they are moving Lombard along, if he is able to win this then he should be put in a contender fight. Maybe if Vitor beats Mike and Lombard wins we could see Lombard vs Vitor for #1 contender? That would be a fun fight to watch.
I'm thinking Hector eventually puts Okami down but you can never count out Okami and he could very well win this fight.
But for the sake of new blood and exciting matchups, I'm rooting for Hector.

This is a great card I hope that it stays as is... I am with LL in that as a fan I would like Okami to win.

Lombard isn't very good at cutting the cage off. He's a counter striker. Most of his KO's come from when his opponent attacks him and he finds an opening on the inside to land a brutal short counter. Guys that like to stand and bang infront of him are tailor made for Lombard.

Okami isn't the type to rush in and engage on the feet. He's a very conservative fighter and will look to pump out the jab en route to a UD victory. I don't think Okami has any thing for Hector in the grappling department. Lombards base is absolutely ridiculous, he shouldn't have a problem stuffing any TD attempts from Okami and that's when he should look to land the KO. When he's seperating from the clinch, activate berserker mode and put Okami down with a flurry of punches against the cage.

Tough fight to call. Okamis conservative, boring style will cause Hector problems to land his killer shots. Grappling will be neutralised. Okami is ridiculously slow how ever, so Hector should be able to find the KO at some point within three.

Hmm... my first reaction is "Okami should be able to win this" but you never know with Lombard. If Yushin has learned from the Boetsch fight he will take this one via UD in my opinion. Especially if he survives the first round.

Two guys with pretty good takedown defense, this is probably going to be a stand-up fight. Yushin is a very conservative fighter with improved striking, but I think Lombard has the power to KO him on the feet.

Hopefully the Lombard that fought Palhares shows up and not the one that fought Boetsch.

Okami's taking this after a few rocky moments. I can see him getting tagged a few times but finding ways to just derail Lombards offences. Okami doesn't get the credit he deserves.

My knee jerk is Okami grinds a gassed Lombard to a decision. If Lombard doesn't KO Okami/avoid all TD attempts in the first, I see a decision win for Okami, but I'll be pulling for Lombard.

I think that Lombard takes this easily..okami is going to have to dive on lombard and get him to the ground or lean against him, I think he will get caught on the way in, Lombard is strong with the judo base I doubt he gets taken down easily. Also, Okami is scared of getting hit..he will jab and run until he gets cornered and covers up

Lombard destroys Okami. Hector is too strong.

Okami doesn't take hits too well and he doesn't recover well once he's been flustered. Couple this with Lombard's unbelievable strength in both grappling and striking exchanges on top of his reflexes means that this is a horrifying matchup for Yushin.

I see Lombard getting a second round TKO after clipping Okami late in the first round. Okami will be broken mentally and from there it'll be easy for Hector to finish.
