Mixed martial arts became popular because of the unique way it blends professional wrestling style storylines and feuds with real-life combat. Fighters call each other out and talk trash in nearly every post-fight interview. Sometimes, the lines between promoting a fight and legitimate beefs can be blurred.
The lines are very clear in the case of Hector Lombard and Tyron Woodley. The MMA veteran wants a piece of Woodley in the wake of his knockout loss to Jake Paul. He says it’s personal, according to a recent interview with MMA Junkie.
“I told you guys a long time ago, he’s a fake f*ck. He tried to pick up other people’s girls. Not only mine, any girl that moved around, he tried to pick her up. Like, he feels that he deserves everything, and listen, it’s not about the girl because everybody, you know, when I made a post, everybody’s thinking about that I have feelings for the girl.
No, I have feelings for the action of this clown that you think is your friend. You think like he can be your buddy, and here he is trying to get a hold of the girl.”
Lombard has been competing in bare-knuckle fighting recently. His storied career began in Cuba as a high-level Judoka. He has competed in every major MMA organization in the United States.
None of that experience matters when it comes to his beef with Tyron Woodley. Hector Lombard wants to settle his personal score in a fight. Woodley would have to think long and hard a bare-knuckle fight, given his lack of success with gloves on.
