So, the big question is who do you give the guy for a first fight?

I say throw him right into the deep end. Give him a top 3 guy, and if he wins, let him fight Anderson/Chael. Just nice to see some new blood in the MW division. I think maybe give him a Bisbing, Brian Stann, or Munoz.

My guess is Lombard vs. Munoz gets made soon. That or Stann takes the fight. I'd personally like to see him fight Belfort but I dunno. It's definitely nice to have a new big name to throw around at Middleweight.

I hope the UFC manages to scoop up Alvarez as well.

They like feeding new blood to Belcher(Okami, Kang, Sexyama), so I say toss him in there with him after Belcher KO's Paul Harris when he prematurely celebrates a win in their fight. Belcher will stand and trade with him and is never boring, plus you don't lose a top contender but still get Hector a quality win against a known commodity.

Fine
We'll wait until Boetsch has pummeled Bisping?

I feel this is the most appropriate fight to make. Okami is sitting right below the top 5 IMO. Okami would be a good test for Lombard's first fight. I'm not suggesting Okami would be a stepping stone; I'm saying this would be a good fight and win for both parties.

Nice fight.



This this and this. Shango vs. Stann would be an amazing fight and would really test Lombard's chin.

I object on the grounds of speculation.
