The All-American, Brian Stann (12-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC) will look to welcome the vacating Bellator middleweight champion, Hector Lombard (31-2-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) to the UFC. The bout has been said by UFC officials to be targeted for UFC on Fox 4 on Aug. 4 in Los Angeles, CA.
For the MMA hardcores, Hector Lombard needs no introduction, as he has been a dominating, undefeated multi-promotion champion with an astounding 24-0-1 streak, spanning back to 2006. With 17 KO finishes and 7 submissions, Lombard is not known for leaving his bouts in the hands of the judges.
Stann may look to have his hands full, but is no push-over in the stand-up department as well. After recently making quick work of Alessio Sakara at UFC on Fuel as the co-headliner, the former WEC light heavyweight champion said that he is looking towards a title run now. Stann may in fact be close, going 4-1 against top opponents, only losing to current top contender Chael Sonnen at UFC 136 in Oct. 2011.
