Bjorn Rebney: Anderson Silva vs. Hector Lombard would be one heck of a fightPosted on October 17, 2011, 09:51 AM by Anton Gurevich
“We have an incredibly dominant champion. It’s not easy. I think, right now, when you look at Vitor Vianna and Alexander Shlemenko, we could provide a good test for Hector Lombard. I think he’s one of the best two middleweights on earth. I think Hector is an absolute monster.
I think there’s one guy on earth right now that I would look at and say to myself, ‘He could beat Hector.’ His name is Anderson Silva. I don’t know that I would pick Anderson to beat Hector, but it would be one heck of a fight. We’ll see what happens with Alexander and Vitor, and one of those guys is going to come out with a big win.” - Sherdog.com
Lombard is currently unbeaten for almost 5 years, currently enjoying a tremendous 23-fight win streak. Thirty-three year old Cuban will square off against Trevor Prangley in a non-title contest at Bellator 58, which will also feature Bellator Middleweight Tournament Final clash between Alexander Shlemenko and the Wand Fight Team product Vitor Vianna.
Bellator 58 will take place on November 19, at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The event shapes up as one of Bellator's best; in addition to the mentioned above Middleweight scraps, Eddie Alvarez returns to action against Michael Chandler, Marlon Sandro fights Rafael Dias, and WMMA veteran Lisa Ward takes on Jessica Aguilar goe toe-to-toe in the main card opener.
