Hector Lombard vs. CB Dollaway booked for UFC 222 in March

It’s been a long time since UFC veteran Hector Lombard officially got a win, but he’ll have another chance soon.

Lombard (34-8-1 MMA, 3-6 UFC) is set to face CB Dollaway (16-8 MMA, 9-8 UFC) on March 3 at UFC 222 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, UFC officials announced via reviewjournal.com. The event will air on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

For Lombard, 39, it’s as must-win as it gets. His last official victory came in March 2014. A loss would bring his skid to five straight, certainly putting him at risk of being released by the UFC. Lombard has lost twice this year – dropping a unanimous decision to Johny Hendricks in February and getting knocked out by Anthony Smith in September.

Dollaway, meanwhile, just got back in the win column earlier this year to snap a three-fight losing streak. He defeated Ed Herman by unanimous decision at The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale in July.
