Hector Lombard Hangs Out With Bigfoot

UFC welterweight Hector Lombard and his American Top Team teammate Bigfoot Silva spend some time together while Hector is still enjoying his win from UFC 171.  The number one contender slot at 170 pounds is wide open at the moment so whenever Joe Silva chooses an opponent for Lombard the fight will have title implications.

UFC Quick Quote: Chael Sonnen no longer interested in fighting Wanderlei Silva

"I'm not looking for it anymore, I don't like to bully guys. I tried to fight him, he doesn't want to fight. I'm not gonna stick a finger in a guy's chest.

In response to the media hype, Uriah Hall says he’s not pushing for Anderson Silva… So why not Cung Le next?

  Before I get into my fantasy matchmaking (that sounds oddly kinky, doesn’t it?) I want to talk about a few things I’m thankful for coming off last week’s “UFC on Fuel”, since my original post-event article got destroyed by some intervention of the spiteful internet gods.

UFC: Dana White and Joe Silva Need to Make Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones Happen Soon

With all the talk surrounding Dana White’s comment on Jose Aldo’s possible jump to the lightweight division and taking on Frankie Edgar, I couldn’t help thinking about why White is being so two-faced about his stance on pitting one champion against another.
