Review: 2015-01-03, some good exchanges between Hector Lombard and Josh Burkman but it is not enough to get three stars: it gets two. The black belt in judo and Bjj and former Bellator Mw champion Hector Lombard entered this fight with a pro mma record of 34-4-1 (78% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.5 welterweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Robbie Lawler); he suffered his last defeat in 2013 when he faced Yushin Okami (via split decision, Lombard vs Okami), since then he has won two bouts: against Nate Marquardt (=Lombard vs Marquardt) and Jake Shields (=Shields vs Lombard).
His opponent, Josh Burkman, has an official record of 27-10-0 (63% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.21 in the same weight class, he also lost in 2013, against Steve Carl (bout valid for the WSOF Ww title, Burkman vs Carl), but then he came back to win beating Tyler Stinson (=Burkman vs Stinson). Lombard vs Burkman is on the undercard of Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier – UFC 182. Watch the video and rate this fight!
