Lombard is such a bad matchup for GSP.

If these 2 were to fight how do you see it going, i think Lombard would make the fight look like a mugging

The guy has poor cardio and is too slow.

Yeah, one of least mobile fighters in the UFC is bad match up against GSP leaping jabs...

Would be very interesting.

Lombard said he worked a lot on his cardio while losing muscles to make the 170 cut

His hands are so fast and he is one of the best counter strikers out there

But again, GSP could probably keep distance with jabs and kicks and cruise to a victory

EDIT : Lombard vs Diaz would be sick

It would probably look like Okama-Lombard, though a bit more dominant. I doubt Lombard would seriously rock GSP like he did Okami, though. Condit was able to rock GSP because his striking is a lot more diverse and unpredictable. Lombard just tries to stalk you down with heavy haymakers. Plenty of other fighters (like Koscheck) had the KO power to rock/finish GSP, but he never gave them the opportunity.

It would look like a mugging.

A 25 minute, paced mugging that while shows technical brilliance, is not the most exciting.

Obviously he has a punchers chance, if Serra could KO him so can Lombard. That being said, I'm leaning towards GSP being smart enough to avoid haymakers (we'll see in his upcoming fight). I'd imagine GSP winning via decision though. I doubt he'll KO or submit Lombard.

GSP would not have too many propblems with Lombard I think. After the first round, it would not be that difficult of a fight for GSP I think
