Hector Lombard and Falaniko Vitale were scheduled to fight a couple years back, according to Vitale, and he got a good sense of what he'd be going up against. The Bellator middleweight champion is still a brawler and likes to put his opponents out quickly and violently. No problem, Vitale told MMAjunkie.com Radio .

"We all have holes," he said. "Hector has a few holes, and I won't tell you guys. But I don't think he's ever fought anybody like me."

"I've been sparring with a lot of boxers similar to Hector's style, My last opponent (Kala Hose) was a striker, and he was similar to Hector. He's kind of a wild brawler, and he likes to knock out guys, so those are the kind of guys I've done well with."

"I've been around this game for a long time, so I've fought a lot of tough guys, Hector's a tough guy as well. But I just don't think he's fought anybody like me." .

"When I beat him, I really want to get back in the UFC circuit, or even Bellator."

At his peak niko was one of the best pure athletes in the entire sport. I hope a win over Lombard gets him one last chance to earn the recognition he deserves.

I'm sure this a one fight deal for Vitale. Obviously he is using this as a launching pad into the UFC. Vitale is a great athlete but he hasn't evolved over the years. I kind of question his dedication to mma.

He's dangerous for anyone but Lombard should beat him.
