    Yeah, I was surprised he was giving him props from the stories I had heard about the two before. Josh is a vet that knows a ton, so was good to hear him saying Lombard has a pretty damn good skill set.

    Story I heard was that Barnett beat the shit out of Lombard for being a gym bully...

    Lombard likes to go 200% in training... Doesn't matter if you are a pro or if it was your first day in the gym.. Lombard tries to hurt you...

    From what I hear, Barnett taught him a lesson and Lombard left the camp...

    I heard Babalu also whooped up on Lombard for the same reason...

    apparently lombard did the same thing against melvin manhoef and got knocked the f*ck out. then again if you're stupid enough to try to piss off manhoef that's just whats going to happen. nobody at that guys weight hits harder than him, hell maybe nobody with 30 or 40 pounds on him does. nobody else could stop hunt with strikes.

    It actually made me respect Josh, and I've never liked him since his early UFC days. He should be back in the UFC one of these days. I think he and Dana have somewhat made up, and are getting along better these days.

    I've heard plenty of these stories, but really who knows just how much truth is to them. Didn't sound like there was too much bad blood there, though Barnett did say Hector has 'crazy everything' and included mentality on his list.

    Anyways, thanks for posting TS, was a really good podcast. I've never really listened to Barnett before, but he's a pretty entertaining guy with lots to say, so I really enjoyed that.

    theres a story about manhoef getting into it with lombard after lombard started throwing punches too hard and melvin put him to sleep. getting into a pissing contest with manhoef involving punching is like playing russian roulette with a loaded desert eagle with hollow points.

    It would be dumb if he doesn't end up in the UFC he's one of the best HW's in the world.

    Now Rogan says Lombard has an underrated ground game. So now who doesn't have an underrated ground game?
