“That wasn’t my plans, UFC wanted me to go to 170. They believe that I have, that I will perform better at 170 than 185. I have to do what the bosses say you know. Can’t argue with the bosses. If it were up to me, I would have stayed at 185. I have to be disciplined and I have to do what they want me to do. I’ve been training hard and I think I will be able to make it and I will be able to perform better that way. They said I’m too short for 185 and I would be big at 170.”

In a recent interview with ‘The MMA Hour‘ former Bellator middleweight champion, Hector Lombard, discussed his recent move to the UFC’s welterweight division.

After a few disappointing performances in the UFC’s middleweight division, is this the right move?
