Conor McGregor reacts to Artem Lobov’s bare-knuckle KO-loss
Former UFC fighter Artem Lobov has found a new home in Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC).
Lobov rose to fame as Conor McGregor’s loyal training partner, and competed for the UFC seven times before making his BKFC-debut in April.
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.
