Lombard focused on Bisping, not title


Hector Lombard could be close to a welterweight title with a win at UFC 171, but should teammate Robbie Lawler win that title, Lombard would rather move to middleweight than fight his friend. And at middleweight, he has an idea of who he would like to fight first:

Shields has called for a title shot if he can become the first fighter to stop Lombard. In turn, Lombard has dismissed his opponent as “boring” and predicted another KO victory. A far more enticing matchup, he said, is Michael Bisping, whom Lombard has repeatedly called out to no avail.

If the Shields fight goes as predicted, and his teammate is successful, Lombard may renew his request. Then, he just has to convince the UFC that he should be Bisping’s next opponent after the Brit faces Tim Kennedy in the headliner of next month’s TUF Nations Finale event in Canada.

Staying in one place isn’t something Lombard does well.

“I really want to fight Bisping,” Lombard says. “He’s a loudmouth, but there’s nothing personal.”

Shields will grind out a win tonight. A slow, dull, annoying, boring win. By split decision.

I think Hector is looking past Jake...Jake is going to tap Lombard out tonight.I think Bisping would box Hector up...Probably knock him out late after Hector has gassed out.

He better not sleep on Shields because Shields can definitely sleep on him
