Artem Lobov Signs With BKFC
Under a month after scoring his release from the UFC, Conor McGregor’s training partner, Artem Lobov has signed a multi-fight deal with the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
Lobov tagged the Philadelphia based organization in a tweet earlier this year, selling his services to various organizations upon joining the free agent market.
“I feel Artem is a great addition to our roster and his style is made for this sport,” said BKFC Founder and President David Feldman. “Attracting and signing a guy with the following that Artem has is a perfect match for where we are right now as an organization. I think this signing speaks volumes for the direction BKFC is heading.”
Lobov’s debut has already been set, as he will face off against fellow UFC veteran Jason Knight on April 20th at BKFC 6.at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi.
“Jason Knight is an action, hard-nosed fighter who will be fighting in his hometown for the first time in a long time,” continued Feldman. “This is a true crossroads fight. I personally think this is a Fight of the Year candidate.”
“I cannot wait to fight for Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship,” said Lobov.
“I have been following them since the beginning. I love what they are doing and I thank David Feldman for believing in me. I look forward to this new stage in my career and I think it has the perfect ruleset for me to perform at my best ability. I look forward to becoming a star in this sport.”
