In a fight billed as “Thunder vs. Lightning,” UFC middleweights Hector Lombard and Yushin Okami battled inside the Octagon at UFC on Fuel TV 8. Okami won the bout by split decision, using take-downs and jabs. Lombard found his range and hurt Okami in the third round, but was unable to go in for the kill. I truly hope the UFC does not cut Lombard, the guy is an exciting fighter who always goes all-out. Maybe if Wanderlei Silva wants to drop down to 185 again, we could see W. Silva vs. Lombard.
