Lombard at 170 - who can stand with him?

The dude is a beast, he sort of reminds me of a mini-Mike Tyson. His judo background will help keep him standing. His hand speed, incredible power and overall athleticism and quickness is unparalleled in the division. I always enjoyed watching him dominate while fighting for Bellator. I think we can attribute some of his woes in his first couple losses in the UFC to stepping up to the big show with stiffer competition as well as being a full weight class above where he should be. The guy is 5' 9" tall.

I'd like to see him take on Maia / Shields to see how he fares against a ground expert at this lighter weight (that is if they can take him down). There are so many possibilities in this new division. Can anyone name a welterweight who gives Lombard any trouble on the feet (besides maybe Big Rig)? I'd like to hear your thoughts on who he should fight next (besides the champ - too soon) and why it would make an interesting match-up.
