    Lombard is getting ready for Rory, presumably 5 rounds, but even if it isn't, and he wins, he'd be fighting for 5 rounds for the belt.

    He's a career MW, who now does a big cut to LW. He's 36. He has struggled in 3 round fights. Rory is 25.

    Can Lombard be competitive at LW in deep waters? He only has one 5-round fight in his career; that was 4 years ago and at MW.

    How many full rounds does Lombard have in his gas tank at WW?

    3, as in, fully loaded.

    He can make it the other 2, but he will be uber gassed.

    I would say that it depends on how he fights.
    In his last fight, he was not overly aggressive.
    I wonder if it goes to the ground or turns out to be a hesitant striking match.

    I see Rory tiring him out and winning a decision if that's what you're getting at! (went for 3 rounds)

    EconoBard can go three rounds when he's pacing himself and fighting in short bursts.

    Greg Jackson brought EconoReem to the world. Ain't no way Firas isn't going to call him up for a chat and all he has to say is, "Cardio."

    If Rory puts on a furious grappling pace he can win this.

    Only 1 full round. But he'll spread it out, not a go a full one.

    I think Rory outslicks him though, without too much difficulty.

    What do you mean by a full round? Just a whole 5 minutes or an extremely active round?

    Hector has to pace himself considerably to even get two good rounds in. I'm always amazed how inactive he is.

    Rory should be able to push the pace, survive one round of musclebound gorilla rage and then batter a fatigued Hector to a 3rd round TKO.

    Depends on the pace of the rounds. I'd give him two hard rounds max.

    People act like he has the gas tank of Kimbo and Alexander.

    He was pacing himself so much during his last fight. I'd say Rory works him for 2 hard rounds then he fades.

    And btw, TS says he cuts down to LW. haha thats pretty nutty. That's on Anthony Johnson (MW) level. Tibau is probably the best weight cutter in UFC though

    Two good rounds, his coaches need to try and help him with this. He needs to eat EXTREMELY healthy and get more cardio in. Gonna be hard at his age.

    Rory will know this and he is smart enough to not take any chances for the first couple rounds. He will wear Lombard down and then get the TKO win.

    I really hope Lombard can win this fight but it is going to be very hard

    It's clear that he's constantly thinking about his cardio when he fights. When he paces himself well he can put an active performance for three rounds. I don't think he does well in the championship rounds (didn't see many of his Bellator title fights) though.

    Depends on his pace. If he stares at you, 5. If he goes full pace, 1 or 2

    Remember the Shlemenko fight. Lombard doesnt really move a lot you cant just stand in front of a guy like Rory.
    His cardio is not amazing but decent enough to stil be dangerous for 5 rounds, but we will see what Rory does to him.
