Hector Lombard: By The Numbers
Though his best days have long since passed, former Bellator
MMA champion Hector
Lombard believes he still has something to offer.
American Top Team staple will face Anthony
Smith in a three-round middleweight showcase at
UFC Fight Night 116 this Saturday at the PPG Paints Arena in
Pittsburgh, where he aims to put an end to a career-worst
three-fight losing streak. Lombard owns a disappointing 3-5 record
Ultimate Fighting Championship and has not competed since he
wound up on the wrong side of a split decision against four-time
NCAA All-American Johny
Hendricks at UFC Fight Night 105 in February. Historically one
of MMA’s most devastating offensive fighters, “Showeather” has put
away seven different opponents in less than a minute.

Daniel Cormier on Jon Jones' situation: 'It’s a death sentence' | BJPenn.com
“You said that he’s going to fight this and he has to,” Cormier told co-host Kenny Florian. “This is a death sentence. If this does what it says it can be, it’s a death sentence. You’re right. This is a very expensive drug. Something that’s not easily found in a supplement. I’ve been in the USADA program for 12 years, I’ve never had these issues. If it was a mistake, you’ve got to be more careful, especially with all the scrutiny that was on him coming back from a suspension. You’ve got to be cautious and careful to expect people to understand. Any more is just ridiculous.”

With the series tied at 1-1, Episode 3 of “The Ultimate Fighter”
Season 26 saw the Eddie
Alvarez -coached Ariel Beck
square off with the Justin
Gaethje -led Montana
The No. 6 seed Stewart lives in trains in Texas. We learn of her
journey to mixed martial arts was one that started through high
school wrestling. The 22-year-old transitioned to MMA after a
successful amateur wrestling career took her all the way to the
nationals, where she finished third. Despite the opportunity to
wrestle while going to college, Stewart made the choice to stay
home and continue to raise her young daughter. With 11 fights on
her books, the 7-4 Stewart is favored to win her opening round
matchup. Coach Gaethje shares his thoughts on how he feels Montana
will not only win this fight, but how she has the ability to go far
in the tournament.
While confidence is high for Stewart, it appears to be non-existent
for the Montana native Beck. While the rest of Beck’s team is
working out, she finds herself in the back suffering from a panic
attack. Alvarez assistant coach Rich Pohler asks Beck if these are
Luke Rockhold Rips Georges St-Pierre for UFC Middleweight Title Fight | MMAWeekly.com
Most people wouldn’t argue that St-Pierre deserves an immediate title shot upon his return, especially following the Hall of Fame type career that he has already forged. Had he returned at welterweight, where he ruled the roost for years, and received an immediate title shot, nary a soul would have batted an eye. At middleweight, however, it’s another story altogether.

“As far as taking steroids, what he’s been busted for is, you know, taking a Viagra Cialis from Mexico that had something in it. That’s not steroids, but it came up that way. And if I had to guess, it’s going to come out that there’s been something that he took to re-hydrate himself after his cut or somewhere in that style, that time that was some kind of – what do I want to say – some kind of substance that he thought was just a supplement, that someone said, ‘Hey, this will make you feel better.

Even on his worst nights, Branch can turn long stretches of into deceptively competitive affairs. Coupled with Rockhold’s return from a long layoff and inherently opportunistic style –– and we may end up with a much closer fight than many are projecting. Still, the pick is Rockhold to dictate striking range, explore with pressure and possibly spark a finish near the fence off of a corralling head kick.
