Michael Chiapetta of MMAFighting.com just broke a story that Hector Lombard is headed to the UFC, with Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney as his source.
Lombard was Bellator's middleweight champion, who has gone five-and-a-half years without a loss. Rebney stated that Bellator would not match UFC's offer. Bellator had a right in their contract to keep Lombard, whose deal has expired, if they could match an outside offer.
