Hector Lombard makes bare knuckle debut at BKFC 10 in Miami
After signing with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship in October, former UFC fighter Hector Lombard now knows who his first opponent will be. The former Olympic judoka and Bellator MMA middleweight champion will take on fellow UFC veteran Joe "Diesel" Riggs in the main event of BKFC 10 on February 15, in Miami, Florida.
Lombard comes to the promotion holding a professional mixed martial arts record of 34-10-1 (2 NC).
Riggs returns to Bare Knuckle FC for a third time, his fourth time in bare knuckle overall. In his last outing with the promotion, Riggs went to a draw against Walber Baros. Prior to that contest, "Diesel" had back-to-back wins over Brok Weaver and Heriberto Tovar.
