Hector Lombard vs. Nate Marquardt at 170 in Houston on Oct 19


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.

I really don't want either guy to lose.

Hard to disagree. He should have been fighting 170 a long time ago if this will work out for him.

Going to be a rough cut for Mr. Lombard.

He doesn't have the gas tank for 185 lbs, no way can he make the cut to 170 & fight faster guys, especially in that division which is pretty much dominated by very high level wrestlers & well-rounded cardio machines. This isn't going to work out well for Lombard.

I like Lombard so I hope the loss to Okami pissed him off. No more tentative striking, go out and swing like a a crackhead with a 9 iron. Hopefully his cut goes well and he feels that sense of urgency from the bell in rd 1. I wouldn't mind seeing him fight Diaz either.

I think Nate will use more wrestling in this fight, due to his job most likely depending on it.   But I think Lombard will get the KO in the first or second round.
