    Cool fight. I will be pulling for Kim and perhaps if he's not too aggressive in the first few minutes he can do well. I like this fight a lot.

    Lombard has been very dangerous at WW. I'm torn, I really think kim has turned a corner in his fighting style. I'm gonna sit back and enjoy this one. Who ever wins I think should be in the title shot conversation. WW division is on fire!

    I think it's going to be T-Rex arms for the win here. Kim has been looking good lately but Lombard is one scary dude.

    Lombard is absolutely scary at WW. Imo he should have been pushed for a title shot or at least a #1 contender fight, but I think Rogan's negative commentary during the shields fight really hurt his standing. Lombard should be a massive favorite in this fight. I like stun gun though, so I will be rooting for him. I think his biggest shot at winning is to go balls to the wall, like he has been recently, and try to exhaust Lombard. Problem is, that style is pretty reckless and Lombard has some power in his hands. Either way, I'm pretty excited for this fight.

    Let's go with winner could get a title shot.

    There's also:
    Rory MacDonald vs Tyron Woodley
    Jake Ellenberger vs Robbie Lawler
    Matt Brown vs ?

    It really depends on who wins, how they perform, and timing. I lean towards winner of Rory and Woodley as being the most deserving of the next title shot, followed by Lawler if he wins, and then Hector Lombard if he wins.
    I also think Ellenberger, Kim, and Brown would need an additional win before getting a title shot.

    We'll see how it all plays out. I miss GSP but it's a good time for the WW division in terms of it being wide open for the taking.
