Middleweight Championship bout
-Ron Verdadero v Hector “Shango” Lombard
Crowd favorite and CFC veteran Hector “Shango” Lombard returned to Sydney, Australia, to defend his CFC championship belt against the tough Hawaiian Ron Verdadero.
After a warm welcome, Shango wasted no time landing a big right hand that put Verdadero down. Lombard chased in, but Verdadero was already recovering from the hook. Lombard took the opportunity to get his stunned opponent’s back, standing up and delivering a huge suplex that almost put Verdadero out again. Quick to finish it off, Lombard delivered some vicious ground strikes, eventually forcing the TKO.
