Hector Lombard-Brian Stann Confirmed, Date Still An Unknown

Hector Lombard will receive Brian Stann for his UFC debut, UFC president Dana White posted on Twitter Sunday afternoon.

Lombard recently signed with the UFC after his contract with Bellator Fighting Championships expired. Lombard was the Bellator middleweight champion at the time, and has not lost in 25 fights. During that time, he has just one draw.

Stann is 12-4 overall and 6-3 in the UFC, including a recent victory over Alessio Sakara. He was the light heavyweight champion in the WEC prior to joining the ranks of the UFC.

MMA Junkie is reporting that Lombard-Stann will likely be added to the August UFC on FOX 4 card, which is slated for Los Angeles.

    It seemed like Stann was the obvious choice, but I think Lombard is too powerful for him.
