ďIíd fight him yesterday, today, it doesnít matter. I want to fight him. I donít believe he should be where he is in the division. Look at his record, who did he beat ?

ďI donít worry about the rankings, I focus on myself," said Lombard. "Iím not a cry baby like Bisping, Iím a man. Itís one fight at a time, get this win and go from there. That is what I have to do. I donít need to bitch about rankings and people and fighters and bullcrap. I donít need to do the other stuff, thatís not me. Bisping is a guy who
is a fóó- crybaby and no big wins.Ē
