Hector Lombard: 'Douchebag' Michael Bisping upset at him for squeezing his 'little girl' hands

Esther Lin for MMA Fighting

According to Hector Lombard, the real reason Michael Bisping seems to be so upset with him and can't keep his name out of his mouth is because "Shango" was apparently to aggressive during a hand shake between the two in which the powerful middleweight squeezed Bisping's "little girl" hands a bit too hard.

After Hector Lombard knocked out Rousimar Palhares at UFC on FX: "Sotiropoulos vs. Pearson" this past December in the very first round, he proceeded to call out top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Michael Bisping.

It isn't the first time the former Bellator 185-pound champ has expressed interest in facing "The Count," having asked for a fight against the brash Brit upon learning of his displeasure of the possibility that "Lighting" would jump over him in the title shot line.

But, according to Lombard, that isn't the real reason Bisping is upset at him. He recalls an encounter when the two met and, upon shaking hands, Lombard's power was apparently too much for the "little girl hands" of Bisping.

He told the tale on his appearance on "The MMA Hour:"

"I saw this douchebag at the elevator. I squeezed his hand and he's got the smallest hands I've ever seen in my life. I squeezed his hand and I'm sure he was in pain a little bit after that, he started talking about me, you know? About how short I am. But one thing you can be 100 percent sure about, is he has the smallest hands ever, like a little girls hands. But, I squeezed it and I think that's one of the reasons he is upset at me."

"Shango" went on to say is 100 percent confident that he would knockout "The Count" should they ever fight after seeing home video of the brash Brit getting laid out cold by an up-and-coming lightweight in Australia.

Well, that and the two powerful fists he owns, which have earned him 18 (technical) knockout victories over his mixed martial arts (MMA) career, including his most recent brutal finish of "Toquinho" in "The Land Down Under."

Before a fight between the two middleweights ever see's the light of day, however, they have both other business to tend to as Bisping is set to do battle this weekend (Jan. 19, 2013) against Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX 7, while Lombard will have a quick turnaround when he takes on Yushin Okami at UFC on Fuel TV 8: "Silva vs. Stann" on March 3, 2013 from Saitama, Japan, in what is his next step on the path to his title shot.

Whether it's sooner or later, eventually, Bisping and Lombard seem destined to settle their differences inside the Octagon.
