Hector Lombard appeared to get a quick stoppage win at Friday’s Gamebred Bareknuckle event — then it turned into a loss, before turning back into a win again.
Lombard faced Chris Sarro at Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA 6 and scored a quick takedown before dropping punches on Sarro, who then tapped. After a long delay while Sarro laid prone on the canvas, the official decision was read as Lombard getting disqualified for illegal punches to the back of the head.
A promotion official then confirmed to MMA Fighting that the decision was actually reversed again and Lombard was awarded a TKO victory after all after 1:09 of action.
