Former Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard, arrived in the UFC last Summer with a 25 fght undefeated streak, and the highest expectations. He did not find the expected success as a middleweight in the UFC, losing to Tim Boetsch and Yushin Okami, against a single win in the league, over Rousimar Palhares.
Now Ariel Helwani says that Lombard and Nate Marquardt will fight at UFC 166 on Oct. 19 in Houston's Toyota Center.
Former King of Pancrase and Strikeforce champion Marquardt is coming off back to back losses, to Tarec Saffeidine and Jake Ellenberger.
