Hector Lombard to fight Jake Shields
Brett Okamoto [ARCHIVE]

ESPN.com | December 8, 2013

A welterweight bout between Hector Lombard and Jake Shields has been booked for UFC 171 on March 15.

UFC officials confirmed the 170-pound contest to ESPN.com on Sunday. The UFC 171 pay-per-view event will take place at American Airlines Center in Dallas.

Lombard (33-4-1) made a phenomenal welterweight debut in October, when he knocked out former title contender Nate Marquardt in less than two minutes.

A former middleweight champion in Bellator Fighting Championships, Lombard is 2-2 since signing with the UFC last year. Both wins have come via first-round knockout.

Shields (29-6-1) is coming off a split decision win over Demian Maia in the main event of UFC Fight Night 29.

The former Strikeforce middleweight champion is the No. 6 ranked welterweight in the world according to ESPN.com and hasn't suffered a loss since September 2011.

A light heavyweight title fight between champion Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira is scheduled to headline UFC 171.

Kind of hoping Jake finds a way to win this.

I think this is a horrible fight for Jake. His techniques for getting the fight to the mat will get him knocked out. Hector's hands are too good and he has the defensive grappling to back them up.

Add in his physical advantages, much quicker and stronger... I think Lombard is too much for Shields, and gets himself another stoppage win at WW.

Lombard hasn't proven to me yet that he is able to beat a good strong grappler. I know Nate Marquardt has a great grappling background, however I believe at this point in his career, Jake Shields is a much better fighter than Nate Marquardt. On paper, this is Lombards fight to lose, but Jake just has that ability to find a way to win fights.

So if I HAD to give the edge to somebody, I'd give it to Jake. But if the same Hector Lombard shows up that fought Shlemenko, nothing can stop him IMO.

I'm BEGGING that Lombard manages to KO him. Jake Shields imo is the most boring guy in the UFC right now. Lombard is a bit of an ass, but if he stretches him, I don't have to see Shields anywhere near a main event for a while.

I think Lombard has got this... and quite easily.
