It’s clear in the video who the shooter was, and police are now further investigating the incident. There reportedly were no injuries from the shooting but the melee left several people injured and needing injuries. It appears that there was more action outside of the cage than in it.
As for Lombard, he recently turned 43 years old but he is still competing in combat sports, having most recently defeated fellow UFC vet Kendall Grove in BKFC. Lombard stepped away from MMA in 2018 following a six-fight losing skid in the Octagon, but he has shown that BKFC seems like a good fit for him at this point of his career with two wins so far.
