The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) brass must think very highly of middleweight newcomer and former Bellator 185-pound champion Hector Lombard.

Not only does "Lightning" get a possible title shot by knocking out the "All American," he gets the chance to do it as a headliner for the promotion's UFC on FOX 4 event scheduled for the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., on Aug. 4, 2012.

Stann confirmed an initial report by during this past weekend's UFC on FOX 3 event in New Jersey.

Lombard's only two losses have come by unanimous decision to Gegard Mousasi and Akihiro Gono in fights that took place nearly six years ago. He has 24 finishes, including 17 (T)KO stoppages in 31 wins.

Scary stuff -- but he's faced with his toughest test to date.

Stann is one of the very best 185-pound fighters the world's largest fight promotion has to offer. He was last seen destroying Alessio Sakara via first round ground-n-pound knockout in Stockholm, Sweden, at the UFC on FUEL TV 2 event just last month.

Prior to that he was 3-1 in his last four appearances, including three violent finishes. His only defeat came at the hands of top middleweight title contender Chael Sonnen.

How do you, as a fan, feel about this bout as the main event?

UFC on FOX 4 will also feature the recently announced light heavyweight bout pitting Ryan Bader vs. Lyoto Machida while Terry Etim vs. Joe Lauzon and Ben Rothwell vs. Travis Browne are also scheduled for the "City of Angels."
