Hector Lombard will look to continue his 25-fight winning streak as he now gets ready to take on Tim Boestch in a middleweight matchup at UFC 149.

Heading into UFC 149, Cuban born and Boca Raton, Fla. native Hector Lombard will be facing off against Tim Boetsch, as Lombard hopes to pave his way to a title shot in the UFC and continue on his 25-fight winning streak. Originally Lombard was set to take on UFC veteran Brian Stann, but an injury forced him out. Michael Bisping took Stann's place as Lombard's opponent, but Bisping suffered an injury in training and was forced to pull out of the bout.

In Bisping's absence, Lombard will take on Tim Boestch, who's seen a resurgence in his career since dropping to the 185-pound weight division. Boestch is on a three-fight win streak since dropping weight, taking down Kendall Grove, Nick Ring, and most recently Yushin Okami.
