This is awesome, there will be no pay cut, he got some awesome deal and a percentage of ppv as well, what only the top boys get, they wanted hector big time, lombard palhares, lombard hendo, lombard silva, lombard sonnen, lombard bisping, I'd watch them all
'UFC president Dana White had expressed interest in the Cuban-Australian fighter, who recently fulfilled the terms of his Bellator contract after an 8-0 stint in the organization that's part of an overall 24-0-1 run in his past 25 outings.
Lombard didn't disclosed a debut date or opponent, and UFC officials haven't formally announced his signing. However, Bellator was in a matching period with the fighter, and according to MMAFighting.com, Bellator CEO and Chairman declined to match a lucrative UFC deal that includes pay-per-view bonuses for Lombard. (Only the UFC's top talent gets such PPV deals.)'
