Hector Lombard announces new nickname

UFC welterweight Hector Lombard has chosen a new nickname. He made the announcement via his social network.

¬†Hector “Lightning” Lombard and the brand has undergone a significant transformation. I wanted my new identity to satisfy my growth and perseverance as a professional competitive athlete.

From this moment on, I will be known as Hector “Showeather” Lombard. Through any ups and downs, through any injuries, wins or losses, I will always show up and do my best. I will always continue to fight THRU ANY WEATHER.

Thank you to everyone who has supported and has continue to show love and support. I'm feeling better and starting to train again, I can't wait till the next match.

You can buy Showeather apparel at Showeather.com.

With the change, “Showeather” now joins an elite group with a fight name containing Sho, including…

Anthony “Showtime” Pettis

Marissa “Shorty” Caldwell, and…

The Sho'nuff Shogun of Harlem
