    Does anyone think he should fight again below the top 10 first?
    Would like to see him fight a top ten fighter who will throw some leather back at him.
    He wants Bisping but thats not going to happen and wouldnt be the best for him.
    I like Lombard/Munoz.
    Lombard/Sonnen also makes my mouth water but thats normal at the thought of Chael getting punched in the face really hard and i guess he's busy pretending to fight for the lhw title

    I def think he should get a top 10 fighter now. There are plenty of possibilities. Stann, Bisping, Vitor, Belcher, Okami, Weidman or Costa if he wins vs Boetsch which is my pick. I like the possibilities.

    Stann vs Lombard would be a good stand up war.

    I'd kind of like to see him fight Cung Le. The Bisping fight would be good too.

    The UFC is paying him a lot of money so yes he should be fighting a top ten fighter.

    Lombard should fight a top 5 guy to see exactly where he stands in the division.

    I'm sad about Palhares, I love that guy :( He came from eating pig swill to the UFC.

    Give him Munoz for a step up rankings-wise. Or an injury replacement for another of the current middle-weight match-ups.

    Nick Diaz comes to the UFC loses then gets a title shot
    Lombard comes in loses the same way as Nick then wins by KO and you ask if he should get a top 10?

    Lombard will beat Bisping. Especially if its 5 rounds

    He should get Okami if he wins at 155. Might not deserve belcher though. Weidman fight would also be good unless Chris wants to fight sooner.

    I think the loser of Bisping/Vitor would be a good fight for Lombard, no matter the outcome.

    I think Lombard would beat Bisping in a 3 round fight. Lombard is like Stann but with a ground game.
