He doesn't care if he gets knocked out...
MMAjunkie spoke with Hector Lombard ahead of his fight with Yushin Okami at UFC on Fuel TV 8 this weekend. Here are some highlights:
Lombard's thoughts on the match-up with Okami: "He's extremely strong, and he has a long reach. It's going to be fun...He's going to come and hug me. I don't want to be hugged, so I've got to punch him."
Lombard on wanting to be known more as an MMA fighter now: "I did judo, yes, but I like more real fighting. I like to be an MMA fighter. A person that I always wanted to be was exciting and be the guy that people like to see because he punches, not go and grapple people."
What Lombard wants to do against Okami: I want to go out there and punch him and be exciting. I don't care if I get KO'ed. I just want to punch him left and right."
