Lombard decided to sign with the promotion for one simple reason.
“The brutality of it. I love the brutality so that is what drew me to sign here,” Lombard said to BJPENN.com.
Lombard signed with BKFC on a six-fight losing streak in MMA that saw him be released by the UFC. Now, he says he has to make a “statement” on Saturday to remind everyone how good he is.
“I’m made out of steel. I don’t worry about any of that. I don’t worry about me breaking my hands, I don’t worry about any of that,” Lombard said. “I’m planning for a KO, that is what I’m planning for. I’m visualizing me knocking him out so that is what is happening.”
