Video: Mark Munoz joins Michael Bisping in campaign to prevent Hector Lombard's rumored title shot

New, comments

"Hector Lombard comes from a different organization and now there's talk about him fighting for a title. I truly believe he's jumping me and he needs to earn his stripes to fight for a world title. I'm just being real. I've been in this organization for almost three years and I've been earning my stripes. I did lose a couple times. I lost to Matt Hamill and Yushin Okami and I take full responsibility for those losses. But at the same time, I came back, proved everybody wrong in developing and improving a lot of things I had holes in and now I'm a well-rounded fighter. It's got me to be one of the top five fighters in the world regardless of what people think. I win. I truly believe I'm one of the best fighters in the world and I deserve a title shot when I win my next fight."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White would consider giving Hector Lombard a title shot and that pisses Michael Bisping off. The good news for "The Count" is that it doesn't sit well with UFC on FUEL TV 4 headliner Mark Munoz, either. "The Filipino Wrecking Machine," like the brash Brit, tells Middle Easy he's been scratching and clawing his way to the top of the 185-pound mountain and doesn't want to be "jumped" by an incoming fighter who "hasn't earned his stripes." How about it Maniacs, if Bisping, Munoz and Lombard can all win impressively in their upcoming fights, who gets first dibs on the winner of Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen?
