Hector Lombard vs Michael BispingAfter UFC on FX 6, Hector Lombard made his claim that he wants to put an end to his feud with Michael Bisping by settling the score in the Octagon.

Since before Lombard’s debut in the UFC, middleweight contender Michael Bisping has been working to get under the former Judo gold medalist’s skin, and it’s worked like a charm.

“I saw Hector Lombard in the elevator yesterday and I thought someone was playing a practical joke,” Bisping said at the UFC 149 Fan Club Q&A in July.  “It was like, who is this little poison dwarf?  I’m like c’mon, seriously?  Seriously?  This is the guy with all the hype?  I think he’s in the wrong weight class; there’s a 125 weight class he should be in though.”

Lombard has been chomping at the bit since July to get his hands on Bisping.  After scoring a lopsided victory over Rousimar Palhares at UFC on FX 6 in Australia, the American Top Team standout told the media how he’s anxious to get in there with the Brit.

Even going as far as saying how he’d be ready next month should Belfort happen to get injured.

“I will jump in right away.  I would jump in, in January,” said Lombard at the UFC on FX 6 post-fight press conference. “Let’s see what the UFC and their owners are planning. It’s up to the UFC, but I would really like to make that fight happen.”

Although Lombard’s ready to jump in on a moments notice, Bisping is fighting Vitor Belfort next month, and it looks like Lombard will have to wait it out.  At the end of the day though, the rivalry between Lombard and Bisping looks like it’s only going to continue to be a heated one from here on out.
