Hector Lombard talks about the KO
Remember when lots of folks talked about UFC middleweights Hector Lombard and Rousimar Palhares as top-of-the-line fighters inching toward a title shot?
So what happens when the two of them are scheduled to get into the cage against each other? Very little talk, very little hype, very under the radar.
But they're talking now after Lombard knocked out Palhares in the first round at UFC on FX 6 on Friday night in Australia. That was the Lombard people were accustomed to seeing as he ripped off 25 straight wins before coming to the UFC.
Here's his post-fight interview, followed by highlights from the knockout below that.
