If you're an MMA fan then you've heard of Hector Lombard.
If you've seen him fight then you know what he's capable of.
The highly decorated Judoka has some vicious punching KO power.
He's the most feared Middleweight currently not in the UFC.
He is the current Bellator, Cage, and Australian Fighting Championship Middleweight champ.
Now the Bellator champ is rallying for a super fight against UFC veteran Renato "Babalu" Sobral. Hector feels that Babalu is dodging him and not backing up his talk. Sobral has gone on to say that during practice he's gotten the better of Hector and isn't afraid to fight him, that the issue is monetary. Sobral's management says that Bellator is sending mixed signals.
Hector just wants to make this fight to happen. If you recall this has happened to Hector before with another UFC vet, Nate Mardquart, who talked a big talk about going after his critics, of which Hector was one of them.
Hector welcomed the fight, but conveniently an agreement between Bellator and Nate couldn't be reached. Now it seems that Sobral is going down the same path leaving Hector frustrated and without a big name fight.
Many of Hector's critics say he hasn't fought enough big names to warrant his position in the top ten and a fight with Sobral or Nate would definitely help cement his place. The only problem is having them step up and put their money where their mouth is.
I for one would love to see this fight happen to give Hector a chance to prove his position as a top ten fighter. That and I love watching Hector knock people out.
As a fight fan I can only hope this fight goes down and anticipate a future match up between two dangerous fighter.
