Hector Lombard calls out Michael Bisping
Former Bellator middleweight ruler Hector Lombard called out Michael Bisping in an interview with Fox Sports following Lombard’s first-round stoppage of Rousimar Palhares at UFC on FX 6 in Gold Coast, Australia.
“Bisping, please. I want a piece of him. I don’t want to talk. Let’s talk in the cage. He bothers me,” said Lombard. “If I can’t fight Bisping, Mark Munoz, you’re next in line. I hope the UFC gives me the opportunity. I want to fight in the next couple of months, right away. I’m healthy. I don’t have any injuries, and I’m ready.”
A Cuban-born Australian fighting out of Coconut Creek, Fla., Lombard made his long-awaited UFC debut in July, only to suffer a lackluster split decision loss to Tim Boetsch at UFC 149.
