    Hector Lombard eyes the winner of Rory MacDonald-Tarec Saffiedine for next bout

    With the UFC's welterweight division teeming with contenders, it's a choose your own adventure within the top ten while Robbie Lawler-Johny Hendricks II plays out. And right now, Hector Lombard, who sits at No. 6 in the UFC's media-driven rankings, has his eyes on UFC Fight Night 54, which takes place Oct. 4.
    Lombard spoke to UFC Tonight's Ariel Helwani, and said that he fancies taking on the winner of the Tarec Saffiedine-Rory MacDonald bout, which will be the main event in Halifax, Nova Scotia. MacDonald sits at No. 2 in the UFC rankings, while Saffiedine, who last fought at TK, sits at No. 10.

    Lombard told Helwani that he suffered from a "pretty big-sized" cervical herniated disc which was pinching one of his nerves, but that he won't need surgery. The American Top Team fighter, who was the long-standing middleweight champion in Bellator, is coming off a victory over Jake Shields at UFC 171 in March, which he dominated en-route to a unanimous decision. Before then, in his welterweight debut at UFC 166 in Houston, he need less than two minutes to score a TKO victory over Nate Marquardt.

    Would love to see this fight. I think Rory has the better chance. I think Hendricks and Lawler both have the advantage over Lombard.

    I think Rory has a solid shot at tiring out Lombard from range, saffedine on the other hand I think does not match up well with Hector.

    I think Hector is capable of sending anyone's head into the nosebleed section. I like his chances against Tarec better than against Rory but I think he's more than capable of beating either of them.

    I think Rory works him over convincingly. I think Lombard beats Tarec.

    P.S. Terrible nickname.... but not as bad as Ares.

    I'd love to see Lombard KO Rory so hard that he falls stiff with all his toes curled.
    Sorry Fedor, but Dan Henderson is the G.O.A.T.
