VIDEO | Hector Lombard Starts Brawl After Winning BKFC Title

Hector Lombard

The Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 18 co-main event between Hector Lombard and Joe Riggs was fun while it lasted before ending in controversial circumstances.

The MMA veterans went at it in a wild fight before Lombard held onto Riggs’ shorts and uncorked a punch. As a result, the fight was waved off as Riggs was unable to see out of one of his eyes and therefore unable to continue – Lombard was declared the new cruiserweight BKFC champion.

Things only got crazier from that moment. As Lombard began his post-fight interview, he was approached by fellow BKFC competitor Lorenzo Hunt. The former UFC contender clearly wasn’t a fan of his personal space being invaded and immediately began swinging at Hunt.

Riggs was on hand to stop Lombard from continuing to attack hunt. Eventually, the ring was cleared and Lombard did not get to complete his post-fight interview.
