    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Hector Lombard vs. Karo Parysian confirmed for UFC 78!!!

    I've been listening intently to talk about HEctor vs Karo, but didn't get my hopes too high due to Hector having visa problems to get to the US. today, I found out, it's been sorted:

    oooh man, I'm looking forward to this.

    Unfortunately, I'm expecting Karo to weather the storm, and get the win against Hector in the end. Hector goes hard as hell, but if people can survive the initial onslaught, he does appear to gas a little. He's training with a new camp now, and may be getting some time in with Randy Couture when he goes to the US, so maybe that will change. I hope so. Hector is a better credentialled Judo player than Karo, though that doesn't necessarily affect the outcome.

    Hector:

    vs
    Karo:



    I can't wait.

    Now this piece of information just brought tears to my eyes....two judo monsters facing eachother in mma? It's gold baby GOLD! But I'm worried about the UFC effect and the fight ending up a snoozefest!:duckie:

    If it's the Lombard we watched in Pride, he will come out swinging in the first round and try to overwhelm Karo, then Lombard will gas badly and Karo will dominate him.

    That Lombard's takedown is pretty damn sweet.
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    Well, Hector has been training at my school lately and I'd have to say I agree with DM's assessment. He's got awesome explosiveness but I'm not so sure about his work ethic. Will be looking forward to this fight with extreme anticipation.

    I guess he's got to get out of that "ippon" mindset!

    Since Karo trains with Randy I doubt Hector is getting any help

    Fair call. Thanks for pointing that out Joe. I didn't put two and two togther :BangHead:

    I'd heard buzz that he was going to be accessing Team Quest facilities - although that was prior to talk of him being signed to fight Karo.
