Hector Lombard sees Matt Brown as the perfect stepping stone to achieving his ultimate wish: a shot at the UFC middleweight championship.
As Brown continues to heal and recover following a loss to Robbie Lawler earlier this year, Lombard is taking to Twitter to call him out:

Lombard (34-4-1) has strung together a pair of wins over Jake Shields and Nate Marquardt. Since signing with the UFC in 2012, he has gone 3-2, with both losses coming via split decision.
Officials previously tried to pair Lombard and Tyron Woodley for Australia later this year, but Woodley declined the fight.
Brown (19-12) had his impressive seven-fight win streak snapped with the loss to Lawler via decision in July.
