Hector Lombard: “I want to let all my fans know. I fought my last fight injured.”

Former Bellator middleweight champion, Hector Lombard has addressed his condition heading into his UFC 149 bout with Tim Boetsch last month in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, explaining he missed six weeks due to various serious injuries and that he should never have competed in the first place.

Lombard, posting via his Facebook page, said:

“I want to let all my fans know. I fought my last fight injured. I wasnt 100% sure but I went to the doctors, I have a fracture sternum with a torn cartilage. I got this injury in training for my fight with Tim Boetsch. I have to be out of training for 6 weeks, I should never have fought like that, but I didn’t want to let my fans and the UFC down.”
