Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Josh Barnett and Hector Lombard Won’t Be Hanging Out Together Any Time Soon

(Video courtesy YouTube/FightHubTV)

At last week’s Bellator show, middleweight Hector Lombard raised a few eyebrows when he said he wanted to face recently-signed Strikeforce heavyweight Josh Barnett in his next bout.

It turns out that the pair have a beef between them that can be traced back to a particular sparring session in 2008.

According to Lombard’s former and Barnett’s current trainer from Combat Submission Wrestling, Erik Paulson, a day or two after a bloody 30-minute boxing match between the duo at the gym, "The Babyfaced Assassin" dragged Lombard into the cage and used his weight advantage to hold him on the canvas and humiliate the Cuban judoka in front of his teammates.

Paulson revealed that the incident was the reason Lombard walked away from the gym to join American Top Team and said he’s surprised that he’s still upset over it.

Apparently Barnett called him during the show on Thursday to tell him he was going to finish what they started two years ago and that he was going to do it inside or outside L’Auberge du Lac Casino Resort in Lake Charles, Louisiana where the event took place last week.

Barnett has yet to comment on the incident, but it’s likely that he’ll blame the commission and say he’s being framed.

Basically, Banger, his way of showing Lombard that he isn't throwing his strongest shots at him when they're standing and trading and that Lombard should respect Barnett for that. And as he didn't respect him for that Barnett gave him a reason why he shouldn't.

It's why I don't slug it out with my trainer as he'd put me out if I was out of line. It's a respect thing.

Dude throwin haymakers is a bit different to holdin down a smaller guy to make a point . At least where I come from .

"it sounds like Barnett gave Lombard a taste of his own medicine"
I think 4oz leather has a distinctly different flavour in comparison to BITCH TIT !

Huh ? Think about it !

Banger .

Hector likes to throw hard punches and spar with guys bigger than him but as soon as he starts getting beaten up by a guy bigger than him when they're grappling he starts complaining. It doesn't work both ways, Mr Lombard. It sounds a lot like Anthony Johnson running his mouth off about being able to submit Josh Barnett... in the gym. It's called training because you're learning from each other to become better fighters and it sounds like Barnett gave Lombard a taste of his own medicine.

Kudos for the Fight Club-reference, bro. Well played.

Just proves what a fucken ass clown Barnett is, you just know he was the bully at school

Don't know all the details but it seems josh comes out as the douche here hes 60 pounds heavier if Lombard wants to go hard in sparing hes still 60 pounds lighter, deal with it Barnett. no need to be a dick in a grappling session picking on a little guy.

Using your weight advantage to lie on people in training is pretty gay. But what's more gay is pulling a Rickson by bragging about "wins" over sparring partners.
Mr_Misanthropy- October 13, 2010 at 3:01 pm
Of course "dry hump" is offensive.

What kind of fat steroid abusing rapist uses his weight advantage to rape people in the middle of a cage in front of his "team mates" and doesn't have the common courtesy to use lube or give a fella a reach around?

It's just not right.
RwilsonR- October 13, 2010 at 2:52 pm
At least MRuss had the professionalism not to use the words "dry-hump" when describing what happened between Barnett and Lombard. Apparently that was very offensive yesterday.

so if I'm reading this correctly, the Babyfat Assassin got pissed that he got tooled by a 185 pounder and dragged him in the cage to lay on him as some sort of revenge? Then he tries to go backstage to fight the guy because Lombard said he wanted to fight Barnett next? This guy blows. Didn't he also call out Kenny Florian a while ago because Kenny gave a critique of one of his fights? This guy needs some Vagisil quickly.

Ok, I need to stop talking before Barnett sees this and calls me out.

Am I the only one who thinks Paulson looks like Ben Roethlisberger? Haha, throwing picks and raping chicks. Just like Barnett, except for the picks and Joshy rapes dudes.
philoebeddoe- October 13, 2010 at 1:53 pm
LMAO! Good one.

@ J-Dog - no doubt Minowaman would be first in line to fight the sumo. Wasn't he in the Super Hulk tournament, too.
RwilsonR- October 13, 2010 at 1:44 pm
I'm confused... did this happen before or after Erik Paulson supplied both men with steroids?
J-Dog- October 13, 2010 at 1:35 pm
All they have to do is go to Japan to make the fight happen. They do that stuff all the time... example: "Super Hulk" tournament. I'm surprised they don't have midgets fight sumo guys over there.

HAHA thanks for that. He has bitch tits too.
ThrashingMad- October 13, 2010 at 1:23 pm
Hector's just got to learn that butt-raping people in the middle of training is just Josh's way of saying "let's be friends".
BONGTAR- October 13, 2010 at 1:04 pm
@ Shaky - agreed brova
Tariq Trotter- October 13, 2010 at 1:00 pm
@knucklesamitch- thanks, I had a hell of a time explaining to my girl what it was i just read that made me bust out laughing for a good 45'd think it would be pretty self explanatory why rape is funny but apparently females disagree
Shaky- October 13, 2010 at 12:54 pm
Well...Josh Barnett is now a dick not just for steroids and gay rape threats...I feel cleansed that I don't have to be his fan in any way now. Of course 'he fights for himself and no one else' anyway....whatever, he's a roid/dickhead and I'd rather not see him fight again, especially against Fedor, because it's a waste of time.

"The Babyfaced Assassin" dragged Lombard into the cage and used his weight advantage to hold him on the canvas and humiliate the Cuban judoka in front of his teammates.

So if I'm reading ^^^^ correctly, Barnett raped Lombard?
Ryan Leising- October 13, 2010 at 12:34 pm
I'm Confused. Did Lombard call out Barnett after his last fight back in August? Or was it "At last week's Bellator show," during an interview that I missed? Cause he didn't fight last week.
