Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veteran and former Bellator MMA champ, Hector Lombard — a current bareknuckle belt holder — got into another heated confrontation at the latest BKFC 19 event, just weeks after kicking off a brawl at BKFC 18. This time the person he was beefing with was much more recognizable: former UFC Welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley.
Lombard shared a video on Instagram of him confronting Woodley at the Tampa, Fla., event (results here). You can see Lombard getting pretty hyped up while Woodley just kind of shrugs and looks confused. Eventually, Woodley turns to leave and BKFC President, David Feldman, comes over to keep Lombard from kicking off another fight.
Here’s what Lombard wrote on social media as an explanation for the whole situation, and man it’s a strange story that involves both men allegedly cheating with the same woman years ago.
“After so many years, finally I got to see this clown Tyron W face to face,” Lombard wrote. “He was calling me across the ring waving etc. I asked him to come over, so he did. Once he did I wanted to slap him in the face, but I contained myself because I have respect for [BKFC president] David Feldman. But let me tell you guys how the beef started…”
So I guess Tyron Woodley was trying to game Hector Lombard's girl so Hector confronted him lol pic.twitter.com/ZtsTYaLSrz— Jason Williams (@jasoneg33) July 25, 2021
“A while ago I had a girlfriend and things were going really bad between us. And I had a relationship with with another girl at the gym and yes I was wrong for doing that but I’m not perfect in any shape of form. I’m not going to mention who but this clown sent me a text. Saying that while she was training she messed up her knee. And that he was really good at wrapping, that he had experience in those types of injuries etc.”
“I gave him her number and I told her Tyrone says that he wants to help you, he is going to wrap your knee etc. Are you okay with that? And she says yes, No problem as long I can get better.”
Uh oh ... the ole,’ “I’m real good at wrapping knees’ routine.”
“After that he was trying in her for a week and a half by bashing me telling her how come Hector is in Louisiana with his girlfriend and you’re here, that’s so wrong that no one likes Hector at the gym, so on and so on! Putting me down so he could get his d..k wet. Meanwhile he was married with 4 kids etc. pure bullshit. [ATT co-founder] Ricardo Liborio begged me to leave it alone because he would lose his family if his wife found out what happened. He lost it anyways for doing the same.”
“I have everything on text. This clown acts like he is a street guy etc. No you’re not! lucky you and lucky me I found out you was gone! Remember when I called you and you were at the airport?? Funny how he was apologizing to me, sending me bible stories… you fake! Everything is starting to unfold…the truth is finally starting to come out!”
I mean, was Tyron wrong? Why *was* Hector in Louisiana with his girlfriend instead of with her? These are the kind of questions that come up when you’re being side-pieced by pro athletes, I guess. Still, you can understand why Lombard wouldn’t be impressed at getting thrown under the bus like that.
Woodley, meanwhile, certainly is not looking for any smoke outside of a regulated fight. He has a big money bout against Jake Paul on Aug. 29, 2021, and the last thing he needs is an injury or charges because Lombard wants to start his second brawl in one month.
“You want to do it? You want to do it?”
No sir, Tyron Woodley does not .. at least not yet.
