A bout that was originally scheduled for UFC 186 might be something the UFC goes back to. According to the crew at UFC Tonight, the promotion is still interested in booking a welterweight bout between recent title challenger Rory MacDonald and Hector Lombard.

April's pay-per-view in Montreal was supposed to be headlined by a welterweight bout between MacDonald and Lombard, but the bout was scrapped when Lombard tested positive for steroids. MacDonald was then moved into a title fight with Robbie Lawler in July. He was stopped in the fifth round of a bout he was winning, and ended up with the face you see in the image about as a result of the bout.

Tough stance to take...if not a competitive match would you prefer a crush match? I'd hate to see him get paid like $80K (I'm guessing here about his payout but I am sure he isn't cheap) against someone who he's damn near guaranteed to destroy. Then again you have a point with him being caught and practically getting a reward for it. It's a tough call to make.

Will MacDonald's face be fixed by then? He looked like Voldemort after that fight with Lawler

It's a good fight. If I was Hector I'd bum rush early and try to give Roy flashbacks of Lawler plus you know if it gets 9it of the first Hector doesn't stand a chance.

If he fights Rory, I think he'll get what he deserves...
