    I’ve been buying almost every event in HD, but this one will probably be a stop by at my friends place to see the last 2 fights of the night.
    While Boetch is a decent fighter, hes not really the test I wanted to see for Lombard. If Lombard destroys him, it wouldnt be that big a surprise IMO and still doesnt tell me much. I dont see Tim being as fast.

    Lombard could be one of the next big things if he proves Bjorn Rebney correct about him being one of the best fighters on the planet.
    His record might be the best for an active fighter but in truth the majority of his career he has faced cans or unknowns, I’m glad to see him get in to the Octagon and be ready to prove himself.

    I think the main event is flying under the radar a littler bit, I could easily see this turning out to be one of the best fights this year.

    I think Tim’s good chin could be his only saving grace in this fight . However, if he gets dropped repeatedly I’m with you, I won’t be surprised at all.

    I hope Tim’s got fillings in his teeth, then he can use his Metal-Detector to find them again after the fight.

    I think he intimidate Lombard he should drive down to the Octagon on his Lawn-Mower.

    it wasn’t luck.

    He earned that comeback from having crazy heart and mental strength to still go for the kill, he obviously worked hard to have enough cardio to deliver a KO after being crushed for 2 rounds and his striking obviously was worked on as he implemented a very rare uppercut technique.

    What kind of retard weeks a correction? BTW I was just kidding about Tim any idiot can see from the countdown that he’s a salt-of-the-earth awesome guy. Was just trying to make a joke and incorporate his metal-detecting and Lawn-Mower riding. : p

    He was looking pretty slow compared to Lombard at the open work-outs tho…. Hope he can make it a great fight if not pull-off the upset.
