Hector Lombard to UFC Done Deal Its Official

Postby Jbruck420 » Apr 24. 2012, 16:04

Via Mike Chiappetta http://www.mmafighting.com/ufc/2012/4/24/2972492/bjorn-rebney-confirms-hector-lombard-is-ufc-bound

World-ranked middleweight Hector Lombard will leave his longtime home at Bellator and sign with the UFC.

Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney confirmed the move to MMA Fighting on Tuesday afternoon.

Bellator had a right to match the UFC's offer, but Rebney cited differences between the two organizational models as the obstacle that could not be overcome when it came to matching the UFC's deal.

well we cant call him a ducker anymore. He earned a shitload in Bellator and hes probably taking a pay cut to get in the UFC

In extreme situations the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacy it is necessary to act outside the law to pursue natural justice. This is not vengeance revenge is not a valid motive it's an emotional response No not vengeance Punishment

Bellator is like UFCs little brother, finding alot of talent. I think we will see alot more devastating fighters coming from Bellator into the UFC. I enjoy bellator just as much as the UFC, they have an awesome tournament where the best fighter gets the title shot, not the one who everyone thinks deserves the shot which I think is great for finding talent.

I really cant see Lombard taking a pay cut for too long if he has some good ones straight up

They'll probably give him a very tough fight right off the bat - just to discredit Bellator.

This is awesome, there will be no pay cut, he got some awesome deal and a percentage of ppv as well, what only the top boys get, they wanted hector big time, lombard palhares, lombard hendo, lombard silva, lombard sonnen, lombard bisping, I'd watch them all :D

'UFC president Dana White had expressed interest in the Cuban-Australian fighter, who recently fulfilled the terms of his Bellator contract after an 8-0 stint in the organization that's part of an overall 24-0-1 run in his past 25 outings.

Lombard didn't disclosed a debut date or opponent, and UFC officials haven't formally announced his signing. However, Bellator was in a matching period with the fighter, and according to MMAFighting.com, Bellator CEO and Chairman declined to match a lucrative UFC deal that includes pay-per-view bonuses for Lombard. (Only the UFC's top talent gets such PPV deals.)'

I'm still not sure about Hector. Alexander Schlemenko put him through 5 rounds. Hector practically tried to lnp that fight. If they put him against someone will solid striking and a relatively decent ground game then he may be in trouble.
