By Steph Daniels @CrooklynMMA on Mar 13, 2015, Bloody Elbow
Tonight, UFC welterweight standout, Hector Lombard will be taking on his first commentary gig for House of Fame MMA via their “Nations Collide: USA vs Cuba card in Miami, FL. He will be covering the Spanish portion of the broadcast for this internationally themed card.
Lombard, an Olympic judoka and high level MMA competitor, had a rough entry into the UFC 185 pound roster, but found immediate success when he decided to drop down to welterweight. Despite this success, he would find himself without an opponent for nearly a year, even after calling out seemingly every guy in the division.
Bloody Elbow: Tell me about the event you’ll be calling the action for this weekend (USA vs Cuba: Nations Collide).
Hector Lombard: The event is between two countries, Cuba and the U.S. and is in Miami. It’s a bit of competition between the two, and it goes back to the politics and all that stuff. Overall, I think it will be very interesting finally seeing Cuba practice MMA, since it was illegal until recently. I’m pretty excited about it.
You can catch Hector’s commentary this evening at 8 PM EST via GFL.TV
