Hector Lombard Will Face Matt Brown With a Win at UFC 182

Top ranked welterweight, Matt Brown may have lost his opponent for the UFC Fight Night in Denver on Thursday, but if Hector Lombard pulls out the win over Josh Burkman at UFC 182, there may be a new main event in the works.

Tarec Saffiedine was originally supposed to go up against Brown in Denver, but a groin injury forced him off the card leaving an open spot for some welterweight to step in and accept the fight with only 6 weeks notice.

Lombard was completely on board with the idea of facing Brown in February. Lombard said this to sources:

“I’m in. Sign me for that one,”

According to UFC president Dana White the fight may be an actual possibility, Dana White said this:

“I like that idea. I’m in,”
