Awesome fight. One I didn't see coming tbh.
Same thing I was thinking when I seen this matchup. I was totally thinking Mark Munoz would be Lombard's next opponent. And for some reason I kinda wanted to see Paul Harris and Okami since that match was suppose to take place at UFC 150. And Okami ended up with Buddy Roberts, a lose, lose situation for him. Beating Buddy Roberts really didn't do much for Okami's resume. IMO. And if Roberts upset him that would've been a career changing fight as it would have whipped him completely out of the top 10.
It is kind of weird that Lombard is in the Main Event after that performance at UFC 149. But he is a Cuban born Australian mixed martial artist and I don't know for sure but it seems like the Australians wouldn't mind that too much.
