UFC welterweight contender Hector Lombard had harsh words for colleagues Jake Shields and Georges St. Pierre recently. Lombard made fun of the welterweight champ St. Pierre's fear of aliens to MMA Junkie this week and also called out Jake Shields.
“He’s so scared of aliens coming up and taking him,” Lombard said of St. Pierre.
“You have to be really messed up to think about all that stuff. Like honestly, I have a lot of respect for him and the stuff he’s done for the sport, but how can you think about an alien coming and going to take you? Are you kidding me or what? It’s stupid.”
As for Shields, who has not lost in his last four fights, Lombard calls him "boring," and promises that he'll make the American really fight.
“He’ll make it boring, or I’m going to end up knocking him out. It’s going to be one or another," said Lombard, who has lost two out of his last four fights.
Though he may question St. Pierre's sanity, Lombard isn't ready to call out the possibly retired champ just yet.
“Up to this point, [St-Pierre] can do whatever he wants,” Lombard said.
“He’s done a lot for the sport. There’s no point for me to go and criticize the man. What I do know is that I have to win my next fight and go from there.”
