    Bad bad mistake by the UFC here. Confirmed to be co-maining the Macau card. I like Cung Le vs. Michael Bisping, it's great matchmaking, but let's be real here. Cung Le or Michael Bisping will never get near the title at this point in their careers. Lombard and Kim are two of the top contenders in a jam packed welterweight division. This fight deserved the 5 rounds and a headlining slot.

    Cung Le is a bigger name than all 3 of them that's why he's main eventing.

    Hector Lombard vs Dong Hyun Kim as a main event is better than Marquardt vs Te Huna but not good enough anyway

    Not a bad mistake at all. Both guys are super aggressive and explosive guys. 3 rounds is really all they need.

    Old Dong would have preferred 5 rounds, but he has completely changed his style and has gone on record to saying he'll be the same against Lombard and try to knock him out, and I believe him.

    That being said I think this is a horrible matchup for him and Lombard wins, but you never know.

    I like Hector vs DHK for 3 rounds, it makes more of an explosive war. I call Hector KO 1 round
