————————————————

Hector Lombard made quite the first impression in his welterweight debut, knocking out Nate Marquardt in under two minutes in the opening round at UFC 166. He went just 1-2 in the UFC’s 185-pound division, earning a knockout win over Rousimar Palhares, but lost split decisions to Tim Boetsch and Yushin Okami.

After a shaky 1-2 start to his UFC career, Jake Shields has proved he still belongs among the elite in mixed martial arts with three straight victories in the octagon. Most recently, a split decision win over grappling ace, Demian Maia at UFC Fight Night 29.
