Saw that the UFC is coming back to Aus and Lombard is likely to headline the card (decent FN main event imo) but I'm assuming Dana was planning Lombard vs Woodley but Woodley got skurred so that apparently not happening.

 

Matt Brown is an option but I know he is injured and there was rumours of Brown vs Woodley as well.

I'm assuming Condit probably still is injured and not in shape to compete.
 

Lawler isn't gonna take another fight when he's guaranteed a title shot.

 

Rory and Tarec are already fighting each other.

Dong wouldn't make sense since he came off a bad KO loss.

Maia has a bone infection and wouldn't put up much of a fight anyway imo

I guess the only other option is Jordan Mein which is a big step down for Lombard tho

Who should Lombard fight? If the card is better than 177 I'll consider making the flight

Hes already the best WW on the roster, give him the title shot. Also UFC ranking are balls.

1. Hendricks
2. Lawler
3. LomGOAT
4. Rory
5. Duckly

I love the fact that Woodley, who trained with Lombard, is scared of him!

Just proves Hector's GOAT status.

 

Maia has a bone infection? WHAT???

yeah I think he pulled out of the Pyle fight with Staph and then it turned into a bone infection, sounds nasty

Holy shmokes!!! That's one brilliant idea!!

Lombard would throw Askren for 5 just like he did Shields.

Jesus... you Aussies should riot if they sign Askren for that fight.

 

He would LnP Lomtard for a full 25, do zero damage, and immediately take his spot in the rankings. Nobody wants to see that.

He couldn't even lay on Jay Hieron properly for 5 rounds

He managed it to LnP Douglas Lima for five full rounds. He stopped Koreshkov, but Andrey just couldn't peel him off. Both of those guys would be winning most of their fights in the UFC.

 

Askren would wear down Lombard with wrestling and take an easy decision. Thankfully for everyone in this thread, they wouldn't sign Askren and put him directly into the fire. He isn't quite an Eddie Alvarez type of name.

You reckon Askren has a better top game than Shields? We saw what happened to him.

Power Judo > wrestling/jits all day bro!

Lima would do good, Koreshkov would be Top 15 at best imo

The UFC should just cut Woodley.

 

Dude can't beat Rory, Shields nor Nate. Won't fight Woodley, Lawler, nor Alves.

 

Seriously, wtf? Cut that can.

I'll do it.  And I'll beat him.

 

I'd love to travel to Oz.  I'm 174.0 this morning.  Only 3 pounds to cut in two months.

The Diaz method might be my one shot at winning.  Go in there and just start **** talking Lombard, but him on such bad Tilt that he loses all coordination
