At this weekend’s BKFC 19 cameras conveniently caught current BKFC cruiserweight champion Hector Lombard confronting former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. The confrontation seemed to revolve around some sort of love triangle and lead to a proposal for the pair to face each other in bare knuckle competition.

Check out what went down below:

“I had to talk to you face to face, like the fucking man like I am,” said Lombard at the beginning of the video. “Remember when you tried to fuck my side chick? Remember?”

“I remember,” said Woodley, stoically.

“Right? That’s fucking wrong,” continued Lombard. “No! That’s fucking wrong.”

Lombard then asked Woodley how he wants to settle their beef. Woodley looked around and suggested, “let’s do it here.”

An excited Lombard then appeals to BKFC president David Feldman, who just happened to be standing by, and asked whether or not they could make this happen.

Both Lombard and Woodley have spent considerable time with American Top Team. Lombard, a former Olympic judoka and Bellator middleweight champion, joined the UFC in 2012. His tenure in the Octagon was not as successful as he would have hoped. After six years with the company he was cut with a record of 3-8 (1 NC) in the promotion.

Since leaving the UFC in 2018 Lombard has turned his attention to bare knuckle boxing, appearing three times for BKFC. His debut was a decision win over David Mundell. He followed that up with a first round KO of TUF 3 winner Kendall Grove. Last month Lombard beat Joe Riggs by fourth round doctor stoppage at BKFC 18.

Woodley was released from the UFC earlier this year after suffering his fourth loss in a row. The first of those losses was to Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 in 2019. That lost cost Woodley the welterweight belt he had held since 2016. Woodley is now preparing to box YouTuber Jake Paul on Showtime this August.
