If you ever find yourself in a gym with Hector Lombard, do yourself a favor and stand on the opposite side of the class.
Brad Picket caught up with Fightful and reflected on the craziest thing he ever witnessed in a sparring environment. "One Punch" awarded the honor to Lombard and his overly-intense approach to training.
"A crazy person is Hector Lombard," Pickett began. "He is very known for sparring quite hard. I remember this clear as day. We were doing a little warm-up round. It's the first round of the day just to get warm. Hector Lombard was notorious for this. He did this not just once, but multiple times."
"We're getting warmed up, very light, doing motion," he continued. "All we hear is [smack, smack, smack]. We turn around and this guy is laying stiff on the floor. Hector Lombard is walking around like a stalker and had knocked him out cold. You're thinking, 'It's the warm-up round. What's going on?' He has two switches: go and stop. That's all he has. He has no in-between whether he is going with a heavyweight or flyweight."
