UFC officials confirmed with The Fight Network yesterday that Hector Lombard (11-2-1, 1 NC), scheduled to face fellow Judoka Karo Parisyan at Nov. 17’s UFC 78 in Newark, N.J., has not been removed from the roster after a report surfaced yesterday that Lombard could not gain entry into the U.S. for the bout ................

He's out, he's in, he's out, he's in. Seems like a pattern to me.

Regardless Karo will judo toss him all the way back to Cuba.

There's another type of visa that he's trying for, one that allows for short visits by sports figures and entertainers.

It's cool how the news spreads so fast now that the UFC feels it has to respond and get the word out.

But if Hector competed at the olmypics i presume his judo is better than Karo's
Oh and ctually he was never in out in out etc, just out and this is the 1st in bit, but its actually not saying he is definately in, they are just saying the UFC never scratched him (which we know cos he is still there on the site) cos they are hopefull he will get this short term visa

We'll see at 78 won't we. Anything can happen in an MMA fight. Just because he has bettew judo on paper doesn't mean squat.

he could be better than karo at judo in the tourney's and olympics but can he still do all the throws without the gee and in a mma fight. karo says that there is only three throws that he can convert to do in a mma fight. but we will have to see.

hector lombard on paper owns karo in judo, but karo is better as an mma fighter

I think karo stops hector in round 2

Karo probably has the better overall MMA game but his Judo is severely overrated. Karo's judo is decent at best, and if anyone had every seen any of Yoshida or Nastula's fights they would know what a real Judo-MMA transtition looks like. Karo makes one half-assed hip-toss a fight and people think he's the god of Judo.

i agree with you. it just seems in the ufc no one really knows or practices judo. so he is like the pioneer of mma judo in the ufc. so now we will see how he match's up against others. i got karo winning also. i bet that karo really wont even try judo he will come out trying to bang.

Karo really should have inproved his striking and BJJ more in the last few years tho, i know he is still very young but he should have finished Burkman or Fickett, lots of decisions in his record but nevr boring fights, i just wanna see him finish guys more, his Judo is overated tho i agree
