It was recently announced today that Brian Stann will get the duty of welcoming Hector Lombard into the octagon. The fight is slated to take place at the UFC on Fox 4 event in Los Angeles, California on August 4th.
Hector Lombard, who signed with the UFC earlier this week, is currently riding a 25 fight unbeaten streak (24-0-1). He is known best for being the long time Middleweight Champion of Bellator. He possesses brutal knockout power and a lot of confidence, which he demonstrated earlier this week by calling out current UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva.
Stann is coming off a very impressive performance at UFC on Fuel TV: Gustafsson vs. Silva, where he made quick work of his opponent Alessio Sakara winning via 1st round knockout. Brian Stann (12-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC), will be a big step up in competition for Lombard, whose last opponent in Bellator was MMA veteran Trevor Prangley.
A lot of people have been questioning how credible Lombard’s current win streak is, considering his lack of top tier opponents. Those questions will be answered soon enough and the US Marine (Stann) will have the ability to dictate the results!
Dana White gave the fans what they wanted! Now all that is left is to see who will come out victorious!
