    Lombard just tweeted to Rory recently saying:

    Strange. Looks like there may be a problem.

    No win situation for Rory. No win situation for the UFC. I don't think this fight gets made.

    Unless they're going to give Rory a TS next, this is the best option.

    Well yeah, it was reported that it was VERBALLY agreed to and there was an event targeted. That doesn't mean it is a done deal.

    Lots can come up when the managers and their fighters sit down and make correspondence with the UFC brass.

    I really hope this fight doesn't happen. I'd rather see Rory wait for Hendricks/Lawler III and Lombard fight Condit or Brown/Saffiedine winner

    I'd still rather see MacDonald vs Lawler. If I was Rory I would not fight Lombard in Australia. Because who knows what will happen. The judges may try and screw him over and give Lombard a decision he didn't earn. Have the fight on neutral territory.

    He already has earned a title shot and doesn't owe Hector anything.

    Rory is next in line after the trilogy. Too much risk. If he beats Lombard then the UFC loses a challenger after Rory fights for the championship.

    The judges usually give the home town guy the nod in decisions. No conspiracy here. Happens all the time.
