Hector Lombard Signs With BKFC

One of the top MMA stars from 2007-2011, Hector Lombard is looking for a new place to thrive. Via a press release, it was announced that the Olympian has signed an exclusive deal with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.

Lombard (34-10-1, 2NC) will be competing in the 186-pound division.

“I’ve wanted to fight for this amazing organization for a while and I’m excited that it’s all come together,” Lombard stated. “Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship is the next level of fighting and I am glad to be part of it.”

The 41-year-old is the first-ever Olympian to be signed to BKFC. He is also the first fighter to be signed that was a champion in Bellator. The inaugural Bellator Middleweight Champion in 2009, Lombard defended it once before relinquishing it to join the UFC. In his last seven fights with the latter promotion, he ended up 0-6 with one no-contest.

With 19 wins via knockout, the former CFC and AFC Middleweight Champion is looking to get back to his winning ways, proving he has a lot left in the tank.

“Hector Lombard is one of the most devastating punchers in MMA history and we are looking for Hector to make a huge splash with BKFC,” said BKFC founder and president David Feldman. “As a fan, I cannot wait to see how Hector does in the squared circle. He’s exciting and explosive. This is an incredible signing.”
Lombard is the first-ever Olympian to sign with BKFC, having represented Cuba in judo in the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia.
