Former Bellator Middleweight Champion Hector Lombard’s first fight in the UFC will be against top 10 middleweight contender Brian Stann (12-4). UFC President Dana White confirmed the match up via twitter on Sunday.

Hector Lombard (31-2-1, 1 NC) announced his signing to the UFC this week and enters the organization on a 25 fight unbeaten streak (24 wins and one draw) and has not lost since 2006. The longtime Bellator Middleweight Champion vacated the title with his departure from the organization last week.

Stann was last seen in action pounding out UFC veteran Alession Sakara earlier this month at the UFC on FUEL TV 2 event in Sweden.

The UFC has confirmed the Lombard vs. Stann bout will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on August 4 for the UFC on FOX 4 event. Stay close to ( as more details emerge.
