Reflections of... Hector Lombard saying crazy things

It appears we have yet another contender for most unjustified trash-talker. This time its former Bellator Middleweight Champion Hector Lombard.

The man who now calls UFC his home took to an Australian news source, and various media outlets have spread his quotes now.

Basically, he thinks UFC is trying to hide Anderson Silva from him and, '"Let's cut the bullshit, let's be honest, they won't give me Anderson Silva."

Um, maybe they won't give you Silva because you didn't win your debut fight.

It seemed pretty clear to me that you were in line for a title shot if you won. UFC management seemed really high on you.

But obviously we're all upset because you faced easier competition and that disqualifies you from a title shot. The fact that you couldn't beat Tim Boetsch outright in a fight that was clearly meant as a setup fight has absolutely nothing to do with the decision to make Michael Bisping the presumed No. 1 contender.

I'll acknowledge that I think Lombard should be in line for a shot if he beats Okami and then wins a No. 1 contender's bout (because it's going to take some time to set up Silva-Bisping), but I do not want to hear victim talk from a man who technically does not have a winning record since his signing less than a year ago.
