After his much-anticipated arrival in the UFC middleweight division provided mixed results, Hector Lombard is officially dropping a weight class.

Lombard (32-4-1 MMA, 1-2 UFC) today confirmed the move to welterweight via Twitter. Additionally, FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight" confirmed the move on Tuesday, with reporter Ariel Helwani reporting Lombard is interested in a fight with Nate Marquardt (32-12-2 MMA, 10-5 UFC).

UFC officials haven't confirmed a date or an opponent for the former Bellator champion's next bout.

Seems like a good move for him. I thought he looked preety small when he fought Tim Boetsch.

I think it'll look like shields first fight a WW in the ufc. He gassed out from the hard cut down.

If he does it the right way then great, if not this is going to be a disaster.

I look forward to seeing how Lombard handles the weight cut. If it doesn't effect him too badly I could see him having a good amount of success at welterweight. He's just way too small for middleweight IMO.

Lombard vs. Marquardt does sound like a pretty good fight.

If he handles the weight cut well I think he will be a monster at WW. There's a lot of good fights for him there and personally, I don't think there is any fight that he can't at least have a chance of winning at WW.

i think if lombard gets with mike dolce and can make that cut easier than he could be a real dangerous fight for anybody at WW. the dude can KO anybody at MW, shit he could really hurt somebody at WW

He's a threat at 170 where he will be much bigger but the guys at 170 usually don't tire
