Lombard (34-8-1 MMA, 3-6 UFC) plans to appeal his loss to Dollaway (16-8 MMA, 9-8 UFC) from this past Saturday. Lombard was declared the loser by disqualification when it was ruled Dollaway couldn’t continue following a pair of punches that landed after the bell to close the first round of their fight.
Formal action aside, Lombard also accused Dollaway of milking the effect of the combo after the bout.
“I always say he didn’t want to fight,” Lombard said backstage at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. “He didn’t want to continue. … We’re fighters. I’ve been in that situation before. You just get up. He was just talking and everything. (If) you want to continue the fight, you continue.”
To retort, Dollaway commented on Lombard’s Instagram account, which Dollaway said Lombard deleted. So he kept on and took screen grabs this time and shared those instead (via Instagram):
Bottom line: These two are just going to have to fight again to settle the score.
