UFC welterweight Hector Lombard is not impressed by Matt Brown or his 'Immortal' hype

Sounds like someone is trying to pick a fight.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight warrior Matt Brown has won seven fights in a row and secured six finishes, including a blistering technical knockout win over Erick Silva earlier this month at the UFC Fight Night 40 event in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Hector Lombard's reaction?


"Lightning" is not overly-impressed by the "Immortal" hype, because Brown -- by his estimation -- still has a lot to prove in one of the promotion's toughest divisions, and wants to see how well the former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) contestant would do against the upper echelon of the division.

Lombard might be a little perturbed that Brown replaced him at No. 6 in the official UFC rankings (see them here).

Naturally, the best way to settle this is to have them fight, since both occupy a spot close to the top five at 170 pounds and still need to register a big win to get into the title picture. Unless you, the fight fan, believe Brown should fight someone else?

Names please.
