    He gets destroyed by any top 5 WW. He has no threat except his "KO power"

    I put it in quotes because they credit him with "KO power". Really he has insane Judo but it can easily be neutralized.

    I think he's looked pretty good tonight. Especially considering Burkman has pretty much tried to stay away and cover up for a majority of the fight.

    Pretty bad fight. But I don't blame Lombard.

    He just wants to throw haymakers.

    Left his grappling behind long ago. Could have smushed Burkman with the GNP but did nothing and kept trying for the 1 punch KO.

    He already beat a top 5 WW in Shields. Anyone with a chin not like Burkman's would have gone to sleep

    how about granite chin?
    how about always in your face?
    how about world class judo?

    Hector was mauling the guy hell it looked like he broke the man's spirit

    He is so physically gifted but he has the worst killer instinct I've ever seen. His output is weak, too, and his cardio is sorely lacking.

    Agreed. It wasn't an impressive fight.

    They way Burkman fought, Lombard should have KOed him easily.

    He seems to have trouble stringing together combinations.

    Overrated by many but still a very dangerous fighter.

    But i'd bet on the likes of lawler and hendricks against him.
