He is built like Rousimar and he got caught. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick April 11, 2013 2 very smart decisions. Log in to Reply INANEBIGNATE April 11, 2013 PowerTele, Just bc Rousimar got popped for PEDs does not mean everyone with a similar build uses PEDs. Lombard critized Rousimar alot for the PEDs so it would be very hypocritical if he uses (not saying he doesnt). Obviously the reason Lombard is dropping is bc he is not doing well at 185 and under sized. Also Hector himself says he cuts very little weight to make 185. He probably cuts less than 10 pounds to make 185. Yes he is jacked but he is at most 5’9 so its not like he is 215 pounds or anything. Log in to Reply fitedoc April 11, 2013 5’9″ 215 is the size of an average college running back. Hardly huge by any standard. Lombard probably walks around at 205 in average shape, again, hardly huge. He needs to drop 20 lbs slowly, and he has the ability to do it. He has appeared soft in his last few weigh-ins, so from my professional perspective it is very possible. Log in to Reply INANEBIGNATE April 11, 2013 Fitedoc, I agree he probably does his final cut (salt/water wieght) from under 200 lbs and comes into the cage 195-200 lbs if that much. Their are a few welterweights that come into the cage weighting over 190. Lombard just needs to cut a little muscle mass and come in a little leaner and making 170 will most likely will not be a problem Log in to Reply someone0001 April 11, 2013 The way athletes treat the steroid epidemic is: deny you’ve used/using, throw anyone caught under the bus for using. Every sport has this issue on a professional level. Your mental game won’t be up to par if your thinking the guy on roids will beat you, or if you keep thinking about how much better you’ll be on steroids. 80+% of all contact sport athletes are using “P.E.D’s” on some level.

I wish Nick would have done this long ago. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick April 12, 2013 @OscarMayhem We al saw how much he sucks at managing guys.He’s a great coach though nobody can deny that.

Perhaps his ideal weight due to his height is 170 and should stay there. Def needs to work on cardio for the faster 170,relying on power wont get him far, and clock is ticking (36)…lots of hype around… will see if he delivers Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
