Its beeen 11 months since Hector Lombard has had a chance to defend his Bellator Middleweight title. Last night in Monroe, Louisiana Hector wasted no time in taking it out on his opponenet Jay Silva.
Hector unleashed his anger, connecting with a solid left right combo that sent Silva crashing to the canvas in 6 seconds! The ref immediately stepped in and stopped Hector from doing any further damage.
Hector was originally scheduled to face off against Paulo Filho, but due to "visa" issues was unable to do so.
It's unfortunate, as Hector is all about proving himself against the best fighters out there.
With that being said, big pros to Jay Silva for stepping up as replacement.
Hector will now wait for the new middleweight tournament winner to de determined, before he gets back in the ring sometime in September. One thing is for certain, Hector will be ready know matter who his opponent will be.
Congrats to Hector Lombard - Bellator Middlewight Champion!!
