Hector Lombard Wants To Face Rory MacDonald For #1 Contender Spot
Not long after Rory MacDonald’s impressive TKO victory over Tarec Saffiedine at UFC Fight Night 54 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, UFC welterweight Hector Lombard decided to take to Twitter and challenge MacDonald, to partake in a no.1 contenders fight with him.
But, as Lombard mentions in the Tweet, he has to defeat newly re-signed Josh Burkman in order to do so. Not only did Lombard call-out MacDonald, but he also took a cheap shot at Saffiedine, with the Tweet below. This likely adds fuel to the rumors that Lombard is disliked by several of his former training partners.
Hector Lombard vs Josh Burkman will take place at UFC 182, on January 3rd, 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be headlined by the light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier.
It appears that Rory MacDonald could face the winner of the championship fight between Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler, which takes place at UFC 181, on December 6th, 2014 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
