UFC 171’s Jake Shields: ‘Everyone Knows Lombard Is A Prick’

March 13, 2014 12:16 pm by BJPENN.COM News

“I’ve always thought Hector is a prick. Everybody kind of knows that. He’s a really good fighter but as a person, everyone who knows him, no one likes him at the gym. He’s the guy who goes after all the new guys, tries to break their ribs, break their arms, knock them out. But as a fighter, he’s talented.”

During yesterday’s pre-UFC 171 media scrum, former Strikeforce and EliteXC champion Jake Shields touched on the personality of his upcoming opponent, Hector Lombard.

We’ve heard a lot of scary stories from the training room but can anyone actually picture Lombard as described?
