The Lombard situation seems strange to me now

    For some reason I've been thinking lately about Hector Lombard's failed drug test. When it first happened, my reaction was similar to most people's opinion. Looking at Hector's incredible physique and the way he was tossing around fighters at Welterweight, it made sense that he was using PEDs. But after witnessing some of the UFC's recent behavior, it's become clear that a lot of sketchy dealing and foul play goes on behind the scenes. Things like the firing of Stitch for making neutral comments, the abandonment of Jon Jones after his accident, the favoritism shown to Conor over long reining champ Aldo, trying to shame Aldo into fighting injured, the blackballing of Wand, etc. The UFC's behavior as of late leaves me feeling as If this is a company that doesn't play by ethical standards when it wants a certain outcome.

    So how does this relate to Lombard? I have a sneaking suspicion that the UFC was looking for a way to get rid of Lombard so they could narrow the field of potential champions down to Hendricks, Lawler, Rory, and Condit. Once GSP retired there was a huge void left to fill, and the UFC probably viewed Lombard as an inadequate Heir to GSP's throne and favored those four guys instead.

    I believe two things are true: 1) Hector Lombard used PEDs. 2) The UFC guided him toward the use of PEDs so that he would be suspended long enough for the title picture to settle.

    You might think this all sounds too crazy to be true, but let me show you how it could have happened.

    When Lombard testified before the commission he gave an explanation as to how PEDs made their way into his system. He claimed that an old Olympic acquaintance offered him some pills that she said were legal and along the lines of vitamins. It turns out this woman lied because the pills contained substances that were banned by the commission. It didn't occur to me until recently that the woman might have been hired by the UFC. They knew that Hector would trust an old friend who was also an athlete. If this woman could use her personal friendship and athletic reputation to convince Hector to take a pill that unknowingly contained PEDs then the job could be done. And it worked!

    Robbie Lawler is the Champ and Hector Lombard is rotting away in suspension.

    Mission accomplished!

    Alright I'll play along. Why would the UFC do this?

    Maybe Lombard is just an idiot who just took PEDs?

    And why the fuck would Lombard take a random vitamin pill when offered?
    I would expect a pro athlete to either have his own vitamin pills or not take them at all.
    You don't take vitamin pills just when you feel like it.

    What a douchebag move by the UFC.



    But at least they didn't force him into breaking his own leg, as they did Anderson.

    The truth is Lombard probably knows ways around Olympic level PED testing but being in MMA now he got lazy due to MMA's until recently pretend drug testing and got popped. He's always been a hugely muscular man, long before he was in the UFC.

    Unless Dana White arm-raped Lombard and forcibly injected PEDs into him while Hector was screaming "Noooooooooooooooooo!", your theory is utter, utter bullshit.

    Jones didn't have an accident, he was taking drugs and committing felony's.

    Wand didn't get black balled by the UFC, he got banned by the athletic commission for avoiding a drug test.

    They pressure Aldo into fighting injured because he's pulled out of multiple fights they've already spent money and time promoting, and there were conflicting reports on if he was really even injured.

    Stitch is not some staple of the UFC, he does the same job a million other people can do and was talking shit about the company who pays him, for business decisions he has nothing to do with.

    Take off your tin foil hat

    Why would the UFC not want Lombard in title contention? Him getting busted actually messed up the WW division a bit since he was so close to a title shot. He's an exciting fighter and has the ability to get the UFC into two newer markets.

    Conspiracy theory at it's finest..

    Hilarious to elaborate such a hairpulled theory especially considering that you only have to look at Lombard's physique to know he was on smthg..
    And the dude is sponsored by an hormone therapy clinic and his manager's first words after he tested positive were " it's not possible! we did our own negative tests "

    Why would they even monitor someone's who clean ?
    They were most probably monitoring his cycle.

    And I'm a big HL fan, I wanted to see him face the top comp at WW and had been calling for his WW cut for years...

    There's one thing I hate even more than a cheater, it's when the guy try too hard to make excuses. Admit it, say sorry and move on.
