Former UFC middleweight contender Mark Munoz is looking to return to the Octagon this year. While no set date has been announced, he does have a fighter on his mind for a future meeting.
“Since Hector Lombard has been in the UFC, he’s been mediocre at best,” said Munoz, during a recent interview with MMA.tv. “Down the road, if it presents itself, yeah, I’d fight Hector Lombard.”
Munoz did make sure to point out that Lombard has “been fighting high-caliber fighters” since entering the UFC. The former Bellator champion was recently defeated by Yushin Okami, and he also lost to Tim Boetsch, defeating Rousimar Palhares last December.
“The Filipino Wrecking Machine” was defeated by Chris Weidman last year, and has been on the sidelines due to injury since.
