Former Bellator MMA Middleweight Champion Hector Lombard is facing a soon to be retiring Thales Leites next month at UFC Fight Night Sao Paulo.
Lombard hasn’t picked up a win in well over four years, since March of 2014, and has apparently realized that a change needed to be made before its too late.
That change comes in the form of where the fighter trains at because Lombard has moved from American Top Team (ATT) in Florida to the Allstars Training Center out of Sweden.
It was Alexander Gustafsson, who also trains at the Allstars Training Center, who revealed the news via Instagram:
There is no word from Lombard yet to whether or not this is a temporary move or if he’ll continue training at the Allstars Training Center for all future bouts.
UFC Fight Night Sao Paulo takes place on Saturday, September 22 from the Ibirapueroa Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil with Jimi Manuwa and Thiago Santos headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on Fox Sports 1.
