Mark Munoz says Hector Lombard needs to ‘earn his stripes’ before getting a title shot in UFC

After you saw the title of this article, you were most likely attracted to the comment section only to say something along the lines of ‘Munoz is right, but…’ The last time Hector Lombard tasted defeat was six years ago by the hands of Gegard Mousasi back in Pride Bushido 13. Before that, Gono grinded out a unanimous decision just a few months earlier in 2006. Since then, he’s gone on one of the longest current winning streaks in MMA and finished nineteen of his last twenty-four fights. On paper, Hector Lombard represents Anderson Silva’s last true test at middleweight, well just don’t tell Mark Munoz that.

We caught up with The Filipino Wrecking Machine to get his take on the news that Hector Lombard may get a title shot if he defeats Tim Boetsch in an impressive fashion at UFC 149, and it seems like Munoz wasn’t that thrilled with the idea.
