    I just rewatched the fight and it seemed as palhares broke his foot when 1.38 min was left in the fight. That was after the first flurry of punches from hector and it was palhares 6th inside leg kick. He got Ko'ed right after that kick though.. maybe 2 seconds after. Would Lombard have won anyway in the same fashion, or was the broken foot the deciding factor ?

    No.

    A win is a win.

    A finish is a finish.

    This is an unanswerable question - no one can really know.

    All signs point to Lombard being able to get to his chin before he got to Lombard's leg, but who knows really.

    Certainly if you re-scheduled this fight for 6 months from now when everybody's healthy again, I'm damn sure picking Lombard.

    I doubt his foot would be able to take anything away from Lombard, much less so when broken.

    Palhares got hurt fighting. That's natural.

    Depends on how you look at it. If the ufc needs to promote someone for a big fight, opponent injuries during the fight will be conveniently forgotten.

    The broken foot was Lombard merit, Palhares broke his foot because Lombard checked it.

    Nope. I was hoping Palhares would win but it was inevitable he was going to get KOed. Broken foot just sped up the process.

    lol wot?
    if anyone has trained with an injury, they will know it makes a difference?

    wtf is sherdog on about, hes not making excuses, he broke his freakin foot?

    can you type with broken fingers?....


    so you dont think a broke foot will make a difference to a fighter?
    you have a smart man as your av, shame you have probably never trained to know what its like to fight, spar

    Is it just me or does Palhares always seem to have an excuse? Nate greased, was sick vs Belcher, now a broken foot vs Lombard...

    Well, it's really ignorant to suppose that a broken foot couldn't play a role in how a fight went down.

    It was obvious that there was going to be an excuse from whoever lost this fight. That was very predictable.

    its not an excuse, but its unfortunet.

    if anyone thinks a broken foot wont make a difference in a fight. you are

    a.retarded
    b. never trained, sparred or competed before.
    c. retarded.
    d. never been injured.
    e. never played sports
    f. probably a keyboard warrior or sherdog expert who actually thinks they know about combat but sit in front of a pc all day.

    can you type, with broken fingers, or hands?
    can you walk with a fractured knee,ankle,or foot.

    so you dont think your foot will help if a massive aggressive lombard is coming your way?

    idiots.

    lombard won that fight fair and square. but theres alot of fools who think an injury is an excuse and wont make a difference.


    these type of people arent real fans, just ekids who like cage fighting because the outside world wont play with them
