Sigh ... good times. In fact, his bout against Randy Couture is what prompted me to spout off at the mouth for the very first time right here on MMAmania.com, as I predicted a swift and certain death for "The read news >>

His eventual move into judo was a natural progression, and he was quite good at it, to say the least. But Lombard relishes the striking game. There is a visible glee in his eye when he discusses punching other men in the face, and you can see it when he fights. Lombard, a very nice man outside of the cage, is utterly terrif read news >>
