Which org for 'Nate the Great' and do we see Hector Lombard tested?
Now Zuffa owns Strikeforce, what is left? Bellator is probably the next best thing at the moment unless he heads to Dream but can't see him going to Japan and losing some relevence to the major Western MMA markets.
Now, the choice is to go back to MW or try again at WW? Personally, if Lombard is not going to move to the UFC, I would like to see some of the better UFC guys (Nate the Great the perfect case in point) go and test him in his own cage. It will really show us where Hector stands amongst the best.
The other option is to challenge Ben Askren, and given the size, wrestling, stand-up and BJJ of Nate, I imagine unless he is severely weight drained, he would probably handle Askren with ease at this point in Bens career.
