Lombard: I don't see Shields being any problem


UFC welterweight Hector Lombard appeared on MMA Junkie Radion ahead of his fight with Jake Shields on the main card of UFC 171 in Dallas, Texas on March 15. UFC 171 will be headlined by Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawle, fighting to see who is the first new welterweight champ since 2008.

“As long as I go to the fight healthy and make my weight right, I don’t see him being any problem,” Lombard told MMAjunkie Radio. “I see myself knocking Jake Shields out to be honest.

“I have to show it, I have to prove it and I have to do it to be able to win.”

"One of the things that I’m the happiest about - you’re fighting where all the welterweights, the best welterweights are fighting. I’m just fighting on a big card, big event, big arena. It’s amazing.”

“I don’t care what anyone says, he’s a very difficult fighter to fight. He doesn’t look like he’s dangerous, but you take a look at his record and you take a look at his fights, he always proves people wrong.

“With that said, I still believe I’m going to knock him out. I will take out anyone, just Jake Shields is next.”

I'd like to see Jake pull off the upset, but honestly I think he'll get Ellenberg'd.

Shields already shut down an atheltic and explosive fighter from American Top Team, he'll do it again.

I'm one of the few and far between. I have been following Shields since his day in EliteXC. He has submitted and beaten who's who in MMA, including many present UFC fighters. It's really too bad current UFC fans don't get to see Shields' better performance.

And when Shields got clocked by Ellenberger, his father passed away several days ago.
