Hector Lombard Has Faith UFC Will Pair Him With Right Foe

Hector Lombard

Hector Lombard is being patient as other welterweight contenders secure fights for the summer.

Lombard, who bested Jake Shields this past March via decision to improve to 3-2 inside the Octagon, was rumored for a potential fight with Nick Diaz, according to UFC president Dana White.

White, though, has yet to hear back from Diaz, and Lombard isn’t sweating it one bit.

“Everybody’s got a fight but me but I trust the UFC,” he posted on Instagram. “They always make the big fights happen.”

Lombard is a former Bellator champion who signed with the UFC while still holding the belt. He debuted in 2012 and lost a split decision to Tim Boetsch. After knocking out Rousimar Palhares, he was defeated – via split decision – to Yushin Okami.

A return in late 2013 saw “Lightning” knock Nate Marquardt out in just under two minutes.

The UFC’s welterweight division is at a stand-still as champion Johny Hendricks recovers from surgery. Tyron Woodley and Rory MacDonald have signed to meet, as have Robbie Lawler and Jake Ellenberger, and Matt Brown and Erick Silva.
