Lombard has already prepared for the cut he did a practice cut to see if he was going to feel okay. With Dolce help he can do it

Hector just happens to lack the reach and it's not a boxing ring where he can cut people off. The Octagon is huge. Having to chase people down all the time is taxing.

IE: Against Tim Boetsch. Who wins if the cage was cut in half. You know Lombard probably would have came out on top.

He certainly has the strength, but lacks the reach, fight IQ, and endurance.

He should continue fighting at MW. Moving down weight classes isn't always the answer.

I can't speak for anyone else but IMO Nate would not have a choice but to stand and fight. hector has a strong base and I don't believe that Nate is a good enough grappler to take Lombard down.

Nates only chance to win would be wrestling so I would think he would try a single or a double ,you know ?

Lombard vs Marquardt has to be one of the funniest fights ever.

Both have extremely high difficulty connecting near the center of the cage.

Lombard couldn't connect on Boetsch even though Boetsch had a broken foot. Marquardt couldn't connect on Saffiedine and let himself be leg kicked all night.

Both typically need to back their opponent into the cage and unload on them. Lombard needed it with Palhares. Marquardt needed it with Tyron Woodley.

Good matchup.

that is about as center of the cage as you can get.

That was 4-5 years ago.

Since then, the only KO's Marquardt has were backing Woodley into the cage and unloading on him. And knocking Rousimar Palhares out when he was complaining to the ref about Marquardt's slippery leg & not defending himself.

Marquardt is explosive and hits hard but is extremely inaccurate as long as the person he's fighting doesn't stand flat footed in front of him, or recklessly charge in like Demian Maia did in your gif.

Lombard is the same.
