Hector Lombard Defeats Starnes!

 In a previously postponed match-up, Bellator Middleweight Champion Hector "Shango" Lombard took on Kalib Starnes "Down Under" in Australia's CFC promotion.



Hector wasted no time in getting the fight to the floor, delivering a ground and pound attack until Starnes had enough with the ref stopping the fight in round one!



"Shango"  has now reeled off 11 straight wins and has not suffered a loss since 2006!

Look for Hector to defend his Bellator title in 2010! Congrats to Hector!!

How the hell did he get him to the ground? Did they fight in a phone booth?

Kudos to Hector for actually catching him.

 Pics!?

The UFC needs to sign Lombard he is a beast.

No offense to these smaller promotions but Hector should be on to bigger and better things.

 Awesome, Lombard is a beast!

Didn't the UFC try to sign him a few years ago but they had visa issues or something like that?

Either way - this is a huge deal and Dana should try to sign him again.

Starnes rightfully catches a lot of shit on here for his shameful performance against Nate Quarry, but he's a solid fighter and definitely no joke on the ground. Very impressive for Lombard not only to finish him, but to do so in a ground fight - the area in which Starnes is usually the strongest.

NarlyPersianDude - He was gonna fight Karo, not sure why they did not sign him later. This guy is a fighter.


 He needs to work out his visa issues before UFC can sign him.

He fought at Bellator, so visa is settled.

Does Lombard have any ties to ATT?



Or was this thread just posted because ATT is still salty about Starnes performance against Quarry while fighting under the ATT banner?

Big Hector fan.... awesome stuff

Lombard trains at ATT!

 Congratulations!

Good post TheDigitalRuler .

No more visa issues for Hector. He is signed with Bellator and will defend his title when they crank back up next year. The guys fom Bellator; Bjorn, Matt etc. were nice enough to let Hector fight between shows.

Lombard had to beat Starnes during the first leg of the race...if it got to the running round he never would have caught starnes.

MEEP MEEP! Nice work Hector. I am guessing his training camp consisted of a lot of sprinting and tackling work.

Agreed

"Does Lombard have any ties to ATT?"

Yes, Hector has been training with us at the main academy in Coconut Creek, FL. since last November.
