Hector Lombard: Rousimar Palhares ‘is a shame for the sport’

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Hector Lombard responds bitterly to Rousimar Palhares testing positive for PEDs following a loss at UFC on FX 6 in December.

“Well, my response is like he needs to be a better person on the inside,’ said Lombard. “You know? I think that the guy, something really wrong happened to him. You know? He needs to be a better person, inside and out.

“I say stuff about him, because he made the comment that he was going to break my leg regardless if I would have tapped or not. I don’t know what’s wrong with that guy. And now that happened to him. I mean, he’s a cheater. What else can I say?

“I never had respect for him from the beginning anyway. How can I have respect for a guy that intentionally breaks peoples’ legs. I cannot have respect for that guy.

“I think that he is a shame for the sport. The sport needs to clean up from people like him. I think that he needs to go and fight people in the street or something. This is a professional sport where you need discipline and you need to be a professional. Guys like that are bad for the UFC. They are bad for the sport. Shame on him.”
