    Anyway I'll be pulling for Nate for sure in this fight. Will Lombard take Nate down? I won't be surprised.

    I listened to Lombard's interview on The MMA Hour and he all but admitted that Zuffa gave him an ultimatum to drop weight classes. He said that Zuffa thinks he's too short for MW.

    I think this has a lot to do with the size of his contract as much as his performances in the octagon. Hector's good, but if the UFC were to release him after another MW loss, his stock would be hurting for sure. He's smart enough to stay in the good graces of the boss, especially with that contract to lose.

    thats what I was thinking. I love Kampmann, he is literally my favorite fighter; but the boy cannot stick to a gameplan and is too eager to trade strikes with heavy handed fighters.

    I'll be quite incredulous to this whole thing until I actually see Lombard make weight at 170 successfully and from that, if he can last more than a round without completely blowing out his gas tank.

    I think there are alot of really smart WWs who'll be able to decision Lombard by draining him, I don't see him getting to a title shot without a loss.

    I'd like to see him get at least 3 wins at WW before a title shot. There are some seriously interesting matchups for him though. Guys like Maia, Diaz, or Condit would make for some sick fights.

    I don't see how he could ever be an anti-GSP with those t-rex arms. It seems more likely to me that he would simply be target practice until he was so bruised up he could no longer defend himself.

    And yup.

    After Hendricks there aren't a lot of contenders left. Maybe Ellenberger if he beats MacDonald. Maybe Demian Maia. Robbie Lawler might make a good comeback story if he can string together some wins.
