Bellator Fighting Championships middleweight title holder Hector Lombard (30-2-1 MMA, 7-0 BFC) boasts one of the most impressive winning streaks in all of mixed martial arts, but he's not exactly a household name.
Chael Sonnen fell short in his bid to unseat UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, yet he's one of the most sought-after fighters in all of the sport. That doesn't sit well with Lombard.
"Chael Sonnen talks [expletive] about everything and the guy is boring as [expletive]," Lombard said. "His style is boring as hell, and he talks [expletive] all the time – offending a lot of people. That's just not my style. I don't have to talk [expletive]. I let my actions speak in the cage."
Lombard faces Trevor Prangley in a 195-pound non-title bout at this Saturday's Bellator 58 event, which airs on MTV2. Lombard carries an incredible 24-fight unbeaten streak into the contest. By comparison, Sonnen has lost nine times in his past 24 appearances.
