    I really want to see Lombard vs Jacare. That would be an awesome fight.

    I'd like to hear Dana's take on the injury situation.

    But then again it's Dana and he dislikes boring fights so much that maybe he would just stay silent about it even if it were true, especially with how much Lombard gets paid...or he'll just say "shoulda pulled out" with an upset look on his face...lol

    It's not like it was some undercard fighter that isn't as signifigant to the promotion yet...it was somebody they were billing as a title contender, and I'm sure Dana would have rather had him pull out of the fight but I'll bet if a title fight happens we will be hearing the excuses on the primetime show.

    Hector Lombard discloses serious injury pre-UFC debut

    Posted by J. Yayo Hernandez on Aug 9, 2012 in MMA, UFC



    UFC middleweight Hector Lombard who lost in his promotional debut at UFC 148 against Tim Boetsch has released some new information about the circumstances surrounding his loss. Initially heard on The Roman Show and then followed up by Lombard’s Facebook, the fighter has stated he suffered a fractured sternum during training which he was unaware of until after the bout took place.



    On The Roman Show, Lombard sounding as though he is catching his breath, explained it thusly:



    “After the fight, I told myself something is not right here,” he said in the interview. “The next day, I told my fiancée to set an appointment cause something wasn’t right especially after my terrible performance.” He said during training, he had constant cough, but thought he had the flu. At one point he felt he was going to have a heart attack.



    “After the fight I thought my career was over because I thought I had heart problems,” he said. The injury then was news to him. “I never knew about that. The sternum stops the breathing,” he said. “Doctors told me ‘I don’t know how you get around cause people don’t walk’.”He went to doctors in Canada and Tampa, Fl, where he had x-rays and an MRI, where doctors told him he needed to rest before he started training again. “It’s going to take like six weeks until I start training,” he said. “I am going to rest.”



    Lombard went on to say that if he would have known of the injury, he would not have fought Boetsch.



    Lombard then took to Facebook and posted the following message to his fans:



    “I want to let all my fans know. I fought mu last fight injured. i wasnt 100% sure but i when 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.”
    Take it for what it's worth, but I don't think Hector is the type to get "jitters", he didn't look right in that fight and I don't think we'll likely see him perform that badly again. So I'm kinda inclined to believe he's telling the truth....still he could KO'd Boetch and it would have been all academic....

    Why would Anderson love this fight? because it would be easy? Would a fight against Bisping or Weidman not also be easy?

    I dont think those are big ifs at all... I think Bisping is more likely to lose and I dont think Lombard beating Okami is out of this world I see that fight as pretty even, a 50/50.

    Who would Lombard be leapfrogging? who are these others you are referring to? And I give up on the Weidman thing, if no one else agrees with me thats fine, but he needs at least one more fight before people should even talk about a title shot for him.

    Lombard is in an awkward spot where he was being groomed but he lost in a boring fashion. Was it jitters? Who knows.
    Don't tell me what to do.

    I get what you are saying.

    Actually Lombard seems like someone the UFC would really want to fight for the title... If he had beaten Boetch, who knows what they would have done... I had him winning that fight, regardless of how unimpressive it was. If he had finished Boetch impressively, I could have seen the UFC giving him a title shot right then.

    He is a more known fighter... Getting recognition in another big organization, where he was a champion. His aggressive, fast pace style with plenty of finishes under his record would help them market him as well. His record is impressive any way you look at it. He would also bring in some international attention(Australia, Cuba, and even Japan to a lesser extent.)

I want people to say that no one deserves the title more than him. I just don't want to fight guys that they say, 'Oh that was a easy match-up for him.' I want to fight the hardest match-up. I wish they (the UFC) could go now and make a pool of the toughest guys at 84kg that no one wants to fight and I want to fight that guy. I want to fight who the UFC and the people believe is the toughest guy out there. Not many people want to fight Palhares. Before we had the fight people were saying: 'Hector is gone, Palhares is taking Hector's leg back to Brazil.' I would like to fight Chris Weidman, he's a big name. I've been asking for (Yushin) Okami, I've been asking for Okami but they (UFC) won't give him to me because of his chin. Okami has no chin, he can't cop the punches. And where's Jake Shields? He's been around forever, he beat Dan Henderson. Those are the guys I want to fight.''
