Hector Lombard (Pictured) didn’t come close to living up to expectations in his in big league debut. However, the former Bellator middleweight champion made up for his split decision defeat to Tim Boetsch by demolishing Rousimar Palhares Saturday night in Australia.
The fireworks he unleashed is exactly what fans expected Lombard to do in his last outing. After feeling each other out in the opening minutes, Lombard started laying the lumber, and unfortunately for Palhares, his head got in the way.
Ross Pearson looked impressive in his return to the lightweight division. The Brit entered hostile territory and posted a highlight reel victory of his own. However, his TKO win wasn’t quite as violent as Lombard’s was.
UFC on FX 6 took place inside Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
