He made his debut against fellow UFC-veteran Jason Knight and won the fight via unanimous decision, and then shook the world by defeating the former boxing world champion Paulie Malignaggi at Bare Knuckle FC 6 in June.

This weekend it was time for Lobov and Knight to rematch, but this time it was Knight that took home the victory, by KO in the fifth and final round.
