These are interesting times in the UFC’s welterweight division, and they’re about to get more interesting, since Hector Lombard is about to make his return.
Lombard is scheduled to fight welterweight contender Neil Magny at UFC Fight Night 85, which will go down on March 19th in Brisbane, Australia. The bout will mark the first time Lombard’s fought since he decisioned Josh Burkman last January, and since “Showeather” was subsequently suspended for PED use.
In advance of UFC FN 85, the promotion has posted Lombard’s quick, stoppage win over Nate Marquardt. The fight was the former Bellator middleweight champ’s first at 170. You can check it out below.
