Hector Lombard Fought Tim Boetsch with Fractured Sternum and Torn CartilageWritten by Tom Ngo |

Hector Lombard was less than spectacular in his big league debut, and now we might know why. According to the former Bellator middleweight champion, he entered last month’s UFC 149 shootout against Tim Boetsch with significant wounds.
“I want to let all my fans know I fought [my] last fight injured,” Lombard wrote on his Facebook page. “i wasnt 100% sure but i [went] to the doctors… I have a fracture sternum with a torn cartilage, i got this injure in training for my fight with Tim Boetsch.
“I have to be out of training for 6weeks i should never have fought like that, but i didnt want to let my fans and the UFC down, love you all.”
Lombard’s post can be taken one of two ways; Fans will either show sympathy towards the 34-year-old, or they’ll bash the slugger for airing his excuses. In the fight business, it’s usually the latter of the two options.
“Lightning” had rattled off 24 consecutive victories en route to capturing Bellator’s 185-pound crown prior to his split decision loss to Boetsch. It was Lombard’s first blemish since dropping a unanimous decision to Gegard Mousasi in November of 2006.

I agree with having more respect if he had pulled out of the fight. At least he was injured and could have made a better debut once he was healed. Now, after that showing, it sounds like an excuse injury or not.
