As the days go by, the buzz continues to snowball regarding a potential showdown between Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard (30-2-1 MMA, 7-0 BFC) and free agent Renato "Babalu" Sobral (36-9 MMA, 0-0 BFC).

Details began to trickle out late this past week regarding the possibility of the non-title "super fight" consummating at 205 pounds. The Nov. 19 Bellator 58 event in Hollywood, Fla., was floated as the target date.

But despite the chatter in recent days – and what appears to be the endorsement of all stakeholders – the fight is not yet set in stone.

I love this fight, but I don't see it as a much different result than any of Lombard's recent fights. I think he'll take it to Babalu.

I need to see Lombard in the Octagon soon, Dana. Please?

Agreed. At 33, he's not getting any younger.
