Hector Lombard: Palhares' broken foot was 'karma' for 'intentionally' breaking people's legs

Matt Roberts

UFC Middleweight Hector Lombard responds to Rousimar Palhares claims that a broken foot impaired his performance at their UFC on FX 6 bout by saying the injury was 'karma' for Palhares history of intentionally injuring opponents.

After Hector Lombard KO'd Rousimar Palhares at UFC on FX 6, "Toquino" put out word that his performance was impaired by a broken foot he suffered early in the bout. Lombard was not amused and made a point of responding in the media.

MMA Mania's Brian Hemminger spoke to Lombard:

I didn't want to say anything but "Toquinho" has been saying he fought with a broken foot and I just wanted to tell him that he broke his foot in the fight, and that doesn't count. If he went into the fight with a broken foot, that's another thing, but he went to the fight healthy and he broke his foot in the fight and that doesn't count. Sort of like if you get KO'd in a fight, that doesn't count. Now if you go to the fight with a concussion, it counts, but if you get KO'd in the fight, it doesn't count.

He went to the fight healthy and was kicking me and I checked all his kicks with my knee and he broke his foot. That's why I wanted everybody to reach out to me because he didn't enter the fight with a broken foot. He got injured during the fight.

It's karma. He intentionally breaks people's foot, intentional breaks people's arms, intentional. He knows that people tap but after people tap, he still pulls and is breaking and ripping their legs and their arms out and it's unreal. I don't understand. If you look at most of his fights in Abu Dhabi, the guys after they tap, he's still breaking and ripping their legs apart. And now, I believe it's karma for all the stuff he's done in the past, coming back to him.
