Former Bellator champion Hector Lombard finally got back to winning ways last night. The 42-year-old fight veteran picked up a unanimous decision victory over David Mundell in his Bare Knuckle FC debut.
Lombard’s main event win at BKFC 10 at the Greater Ft. Lauderdale Convention Center snapped the six-fight losing streak that brought his UFC career to an end. The Cuban-Australian fighters unanimous decision victory came by scores of 49-46, 48-47, and 48-47 in a cruiserweight bout which was his first win since beating Jake Shields in March 2014.
Speaking post-fight Lombard was happy to get the win and experience a new type of fighting under the BKFC banner.
“I was aggressive, and I scored the points,” Lombard said after the bout. “He was backing up the whole time, but my hat off to him. I never thought it was going to be that tough, but he put up a good fight.
“I wanted to be in bare knuckle because I wanted the experience, and now I have it,” he continued. “I’m pretty sure I have to change my gameplan and some little things, but it was an amazing experience.” (Transcribed by MMA Junkie)
