Cap’n America vs Cap’n Cansmasher

Bellator and their resident middleweight champ/can-smasher extraordinaire Hector Lombard have been in contract negotiations for a few months now, and it didn’t take a genius to see that he might have been stalling in order to jump to the UFC.  The writing was on the wall two weeks ago when Bellator admitted that Zuffa had indeed made him an offer, and they were sitting down to determine if they could afford to match it.  Surprise surprise, they couldn’t, as confirmed by Dana White’s publicist (aka Twitter) last Friday.

So who will welcome Lombard to the big leagues?  Looks like his days of running the cannery are over, as the UFC announced yesterday that he will face Brian Stann “this August in Los Angeles”, which likely means UFC On Fox 4 on August 4th.  Lombard is riding an incredible 25-fight unbeaten streak that stretches all the way back to 2006, but when the last decent name on that list is Brian Ebersole nearly four years ago, it goes without saying that Stann represents a huge step up in competition for a guy used to destroying journeymen in the B-leagues.  And before you go thinking “here comes another Overeem”, Lombard is actually asking for a random drug test to prove it’s all just spinach and horsemeat, so let’s hope he understands what “random” means.

As for that belt he leaves behind, Rebney says the ever-patient Alexander Shlemenko will face the winner of the Andreas Spang vs Maiquel “Psycho” Falcao tournament finals to crown the new champ.

    Isn’t Randy Captain amerika?

    I mean there are so many “Sugar”s that that doesn’t matter, but its not like there are a bunch of captain amerika’s in fight sports.

    Lombard/Stann is a good fight though.
    Nice to see joe silva putting a little effort into his job again.

    Meh, we’ll see what he can do.  He keeps his hands so low I dunno how far he’ll get.

    Looking forward to his random drug test request though.

    I don’t think it’s fair to accuse him of steroids (more than any other fighter). He’s a shorter guy for the weight class & has always looked this way. With that said, he’s not UFC caliber & we’ll see that soon enough.

    PS: I’m still a little bitter that he couldn’t get his visa shit together to fight Karo back in the day…….
