Mark Munoz Refers To Hector Lombard’s Brief UFC Career As ‘Mediocre’

Mark Munoz has had it rough over the past few months, dealing with injuries and rehab. Now, as he sits and watches the UFC’s middleweight division sort itself out, he believes his take on Hector Lombard has been proven correct.

Munoz previously stated that Lombard was overrated upon entering the UFC because he had not met up with the type of competition the promotion has.

The former Bellator champion has gone just 1-2 in his three Octagon appearances, including a recent loss to Yushin Okami.

“Since Hector Lombard has been in the UFC, he’s been mediocre at best,” said Munoz, during a recent interview with MMA.tv. “Down the road, if it presents itself, yeah, I’d fight Hector Lombard.”

Munoz was defeated in his most recent outing, falling to Chris Weidman. The 35-year-old has fuoght just once since late in 2011 – the Weidman bout – as he suffered a training injury prior to a scheduled meeting with Chael Sonnen.

It was evident that he was off a bit vs. Weidman, as the lengthy time away caused problems. If the Munoz that ran through Aaron Simpson, C.B. Dollaway, Demian Maia and Chris Leben can return, he can easily become a contender again.
