Hector Lombard: ‘Rousey Had To Come To Entertain Following Olympics’

March 13, 2014 5:15 am by BJPENN.COM News

“Trust me, I came from the Olympics, and I can mention to you right now, for example, Olympic gold medalists in judo, and you don’t even know who they are,” Lombard said. “Now, I mention to you a bronze Olympic medalist in judo, and you know who she is. Why? Because she had to come here. She had to come to the entertainment business.”

During yesterday’s pre-fight media scrum, UFC welterweight fighter Hector Lombard, talked about his fellow Judoist, Ronda Rousey.

Earlier he discussed the importance of entertainment in MMA and how his opponent, Jake Shields, lacks that aspect of the game.

Is he on the money?
