Hector Lombard vs. Dong Hyun Kim booked for UFC China

Hector Lombard was fast becoming the Khabib Nurmagomedov of the UFC’s welterweight division: nobody wanted to fight him. Luckily, the UFC has been able to book a fight for Lombard in Korean standout Dong Hyun Kim.

Lombard has been calling out Matt Brown over Twitter, but matchmakers have decided to pair “Lightning” against “Stun Gun” Kim for UFC Fight Night in Macau, China on August 23rd.

Lombard (34-4-1, 1 NC) is fresh off a dominant performance over Jake Shields at UFC 171 and has gone 2-0 since his move to welterweight. Kim (19-2-1, 1 NC), on the other hand, is on a four-fight win streak with his last two wins coming by knockout. The fighter from South Korean is now 10-3 in his UFC career.

Who do you think will win when Hector Lombard takes on Dong Hyun Kim at UFC China?
