The Bellator FC organization confirmed this Wednesday the clash between the Brazilian Paul Philo and the experienced Hector Lombard. The duel will be the main attraction of the 18th edition of the show, scheduled for May 13th, with no location yet defined.
Current Bellator under-84 kilos champion, Lombard will not defend his belt against the Brazilian, but believes in a great fight against the Brazilian black belt.
“I think this is a big fight for me. Paulo is a big name in MMA and he is a former champion, so it will be champion versus champion. I think my game fits very well with his, both on the feet and on the ground,” he said.
