Hector Lombard looking like a goshdern tank ahead of Bare Knuckle FC debut

Fans of violence, here’s your reminder: Hector Lombard makes his bare knuckle boxing debut on Saturday night.

The former Bellator middleweight champion and Olympic judoka is featured in the cruiserweight main event of Saturday’s Bare Knuckle FC 10 event, where he takes on David Mundell at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The event airs on traditional pay-per-view outlets through MultiVision Media and also streams on pay-per-view via Fite TV.

On Thursday, the two combatants were featured in a press conference, where Lundell made it clear he’s not showing up just to be some opponent for Lombard to destroy.

“He’s a retired Olympian,” Mundell said. “He’s retired from MMA. Then come Saturday night, I plan on retiring him from BKFC, too.”

Never one to back down from a challenge, Lombard stood firm.

“He wants to knock me out,” Lombard said. “I know. I see the way he’s looking at me. I cannot wait. But that’s not going to happen. I’m telling you that for a fact.”

But honestly, who needs words when you fill out a sweater like Lombard?

The fiery Cuban is known to have a bit of a temper, leading former UFC champ Michael Bisping to once label him a “little poison dwarf.” His penultimate MMA contest ended in disqualification for knocking out C.B. Dollaway with a shot that landed after the bell. An impressive 22 of his 34 career wins came by way of knockout.

Put the man in a bare-knuckle fight at your own risk.
