Lombard Talks Woodley: ‘We’re not friends or teammates’

“We’re not friends. He just comes to use the gym. He doesn’t even live here. It’s not a difficult decision at all.”


“Training partners are the ones that train with you full-time, all year-round. They help you on other fights, fights that you have with someone else. That’s a training partner. A training partner is a person that lives in your camp.

“Like Robbie (Lawler), he moved all his family, his wife, everyone, and now he lives here. If you live in Mississippi or whatever and you just come when your training comes and use the trainers and the trainers help you to go for your stuff, and you leave, I don’t know.”


“I’ll be more than ready, and I’ll say again: We ain’t friends.”

In a recent interview with MMAJunkie.com, Hector Lombard discussed his recent troubles in booking a fight with Tyron Woodley, who refused the UFC offer to fight his fellow American Top Team athlete.
