Former Bellator champion Hector Lombard’s attempt at ruling the welterweight division is over – at least for the time being.
Lombard announced on social media recently that a four-fight run at 170 pounds will come to an end following a loss to Neil Magny.
In 2013, Lombard (34-5-1) debuted at welterweight with a knockout of Nate Marquardt. He added a decision win over Jake Shields, before a 2015 win over Josh Burkman was overturned to a no-contest due to a failed drug test.
Below is post from Lombard:
Here, I fixed some things :) I left everything that I had in my last fight. I asked my body to perform, but I got no reply. When your body says no and stops functioning there is nothing you can do about it.
I’m very happy to be back fighting at my original weight 185.
Now with no IV allowed, I will be able to fight in a healthier weight for me.
