haha, I love how when Okami said he'd like to fight Bisping next, Chael shut him down and told him "no, who you want to fight next is the winner of Phillipou vs. Jacare." Then shortly after, he's like "that's going to happen.. because I said so." Awesome stuff.

I second that, in Bellator. Lombard looks like a builded up Francisco Trinaldo. Not fight wise, of course.

I always had to argue with those peolple saying Lombard was unproved and overhyped.

Decent fight, happy for Okami but would have enjoyed Lombard winning more so that there's more contenders in the mix.

Lombard shows that he can finish fights, but he hasn't learned that he now has to game plan as the competition is significantly stronger.

He hurt Boetsch, but didn't capitalize. He stormed and beat Toquinho which is a solid win in my books.

Okami is a very well rounded fighter and two time contender. He never hurt Lombard, but Lombard did hurt him. At the end of the day it's about control, positioning, takedowns, damage and ultimately points. If Lombard exploded earlier maybe he could have taken the first, lost the 2nd and won the third. Who knows.

I don't think Lombard is super over rated, but maybe a bit overly hyped because it's obvious he does have the KO power and skills. Over rated is when you're losing BADLY or getting koed or submitted left and right.

In order for Lombard to stick around he should face Belcher or get a pay cut. His value has dropped significantly. That third round "may" have saved em for one last fight in the org.

Overall I really enjoyed the fight because Okami fought a sound and intelligent game plan against a formidable Judoka player and knockout artist.

I agree with everything you said here. Lombard lacks fighter IQ. He did decent tonight. Okami is a tough guy to beat.

I'd like to see Lombard crush a guy like Tim Kennedy.

I was really impressed with Okami tonight, he didn't back down, he fought well, he was throwing that jab in lombards face, got some nice takdowns, and showed he's still a contender

Lombard to get cut and shipped back to Bellator with his tail between his legs.

Not good enough for the money the UFC are paying him to keep imo.

Business sense you get rid.
