Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard will top contender Brian Stann in August in his octagon debut according to a tweet from Ariel Helwani.
In response to Lombard vs. Stann. RT @danawhite: @scottyp0806 yupa
Lombard left Bellator for the greener pastures of the UFC where he will be thrown into the mix right away. Should he get past Stann I would imagine he would be the #1 contender and face the winner of Chael Sonnen vs. Anderson Silva. Michael Bisping is also in the mix but he will have to get through Tim Boetsch to stay in title contention.
