UFC's Hector Lombard officially headed to welterweight, wants Nate Marquardt

After his much-anticipated arrival in the UFC middleweight division provided mixed results, Hector Lombard is officially dropping a
weight class.

Lombard (32-4-1 MMA, 1-2 UFC) today confirmed the move to welterweight via Twitter. Additionally, FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight" confirmed the move on Tuesday, with reporter Ariel Helwani reporting Lombard is interested in a fight with Nate Marquardt (32-12-2 MMA, 10-5 UFC).

UFC officials haven't confirmed a date or an opponent for the former Bellator champion's next bout.

Lombard, who's ranked No. 12 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com MMA middleweight rankings, joined the UFC in 2012 on the strength of a 25-fight unbeaten streak (24-0-1). The run saw the Olympic judoka win Bellator's inaugural middleweight tournament and make a lone title defense over Alexander Shlemenko.

However, in his UFC debut, Lombard looked flat in suffering a split-decision defeat to Tim Boetsch
(though most media outlets scored the fight for Lombard). He rebounded with a first-round knockout of Rousimar Palhares, but in his most recent bout, Lombard dropped a split decision to perennial contender Yushin Okami at UFC on FUEL TV 8 back in March.

Marquardt, who's also a former middleweight, is a former Strikeforce champion who returned to the organization in March. However, he suffered a knockout loss to Jake Ellenberger at UFC 158, which
marked the first back-to-back losses of his career.

I think this is a good move for Lombard. I think he will do much better at WW

I'm interested in seeing what he looks like at 170. He's pretty thick at middleweight and looks ripped even during the fight. He's almost guarentee'd to lose muscle and strength. Hopefully he can find some consistant success at 170.

His drop doesn't make much sense if you ask me, but I guess he should do better in the WW division than the MW division. Reason I say it doesn't make sense is cuz even though he lost they were very close fights and he clearly could hang with the best in the division. Pretty humble of him to ask to fight Nate, I say they give him a top 10 guy.

Probably just the creatine and horse meat, dude is wayy too stocky for his height.

Good move by Lombard I think. Won't beat GSP but I can see him being top 5 in this div.

he's too short for the weight class and he had issues there. there are huge enormous guys at 185 like okami, weidman, etc. and some guys can just overpower them, now he's going to be a huge monster at 170 and he'll be able to outmuscle about everyone which is part of his style.

Would like to see that fight.

Don't know who the hell would win but if Lombard doesn't start performing he's gonna be in WSOF.
