Hector Lombard talks Rousimar Palhares: 'How can I have respect for this guy?'

After beating Rousimar Palhares at UFC on FX 6, Hector Lombard comments on Palhares' post-fight drug test failure: "I never had respect for him from the beginning anyway. How can I have respect for a guy that intentionally breaks peoples' legs. I cannot have respect for that guy. I think that he is a shame for the sport."

UFC Middleweight Hector Lombard made short work of Rousimar Palhares in their UFC on FX 6 bout, winning by first round TKO. Following the news that Palhares failed a post-fight drug test for elevated testosterone, Lombard spoke to Getting Lucky with Robert Curtis and here's what he had to say about Toquino:

"Well, my response it, is like he needs to be a better person on the inside. You know? I think that the guy, something really wrong happened to him. You know? He needs to be a better person, inside and out. I say stuff about him, because he made the comment that he was going to break my leg regardless if I would have tapped or not. I don't know what's wrong with that guy. And now that happened to him. I mean, he's a cheater. What else can I say? I never had respect for him from the beginning anyway. How can I have respect for a guy that intentionally breaks peoples' legs. I cannot have respect for that guy. I think that he is a shame for the sport. The sport needs to clean up from people like him. I think that he needs to go and fight people in the street or something. This is a professional sport where you need discipline and you need to be a professional. Guys like that are bad for the UFC. They are bad for the sport. Shame on him."
