I don't really believe that Joe Silva forced him to move down to 170. I suspect there was a suggestion there and Lombard sorta went with it because yea, he is a small MW within the UFC. For him to say Silva forced him down...I just can't buy it.
Anyway I'll be pulling for Nate for sure in this fight. Will Lombard take Nate down? I won't be surprised.
Related note: Please Joe Silva work with Bellator so I can watch a rematch of Lombard vs Schlemenko!

classic - "this is the dumbest thing Ive ever heard. thats like me having a picture of Hitler posted, and saying "I dont believe in his politics, but I like to hear him talk" W.Silva>C.Norris
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.
