UFC president Dana White was in a giving mood today. Just minutes after confirming a bout between , Dana confirmed another huge bout, this time in the middleweight division. Former Bellator middleweight champion and Hector Lombard will make his UFC debut against The All-American, Brian Stann. Here's the tweet:
Lombard (31-2-1, 1 NC) defeated Jared Hess for the inaugural Bellator middleweight title in mid-2009 and successfully defended it once. He also picked up wins in four other Bellator non-title fights. The Cuban-Australian fighter is on a 24-fight unbeaten streak and was one of the faces of the Bellator organization, but couldn't come to terms with the promotion and moved over to the UFC. Stann (12-4) is coming off a first-round knockout of Alessio Sakara at UFC on Fuel 2 earlier this month.
UPDATE - According to a report, the fight will take place at UFC on Fox 4 on August 4th in Los Angeles. The bout will be on the main Fox card.
