Hector Lombard will make the drop to 170 pounds when he meets Nate Marquardt at UFC 166 in Houston on Oct. 19.

Kind of lame if you ask me...which nobody is. He wasn't on a losing streak or anything, just a lack luster fight with boestch.

I don't like forcing fighters to do something like this against his will but I do understand why it was pressed on him. I think he is much better suited for WW due to his height as well.

Lombard is a contender at MW so I'm guessing he will do rather well at WW.

I recall Okami winning the second round and Lombard winning the thrid while the first was very close. No schooling took place, especially by Okami.
