UFC on FX 6 Results - Sotiropoulos vs. Pearson

By

3 of 6

Rousimar Palhares vs. Hector Lombard Results
Rousimar Palhares vs. Hector Lombard Results - Longtime Bellator champion Hector Lombard was supposed to make a bigger smash in his UFC debut. Instead, the former judo Olympic medalist lost a close decision to Tim Boetsch. On the flip side, Palhares, one of the most powerful Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners in the world today, was beaten at his own game by Alan Belcher in his last fight (TKO on the ground). In other words, both of these outstanding fighters had a lot to prove coming into their UFC on FX 6 contest.

Early on, Lombard threw a hard front kick that was blocked. Then the two traded tough low kicks. Lombard took the center of the ring and really seemed to be the aggressor. Palhares hit home with a very hard low kick. Lombard countered with a punch. Moments later, Palhares connected with another hard low kick. Then Palhares threw a kick, which Lombard caught and nailed him with a punch for. Palhares went down, but Lombard let him back up. Another low kick from Palhares. Then Lombard landed a hard body kick, and followed it up with a right hand that seemed to dizzy his opponent. Soon after, a couple of left hands dropped Palhares to his knees; the former judo Olympian followed him to the canvas and into the Brazilian's guard.

Lombard stood up out of his adversary’s guard. Then came a huge flurry of Lombard punches, which ended with a couple of ‘good night’ lefts on the canvas. And that was that.

That was the explosive Hector Lombard we used to know in Bellator.

Hector Lombard defeats Rousimar Palhares by TKO at 3:38 of round one.
