Conor McGregor Wants To Fight Artem Lobov After Facing Second Lawsuit

The two used to be considered close friends.

Conor McGregor said he’s facing a second lawsuit. 

This time, the former two-division champion said it’s for defamation of character and has been filed by former friend and teammate Artem Lobov. Earlier this week, Lobov reportedly filed a lawsuit seeking millions in restitution for not getting appropriate recognition of his role in the growth of McGregor’s Proper No. 12 Irish Whiskey brand. 

“Artem is trying to sue me and my father for defamation now as well,” McGregor wrote on Twitter in a now-deleted tweet.  

“Oh lord, god bless. Artem you look like an uncooked sausage of a thing. Jump on the pan for minute pal you look rough mate. God bless ya pal.” 

Lobov and his attorneys have not returned messages about the alleged defamation lawsuit. 

After news broke of the second lawsuit, McGregor took to Twitter once again and responded in a now-deleted audio message. 

“This is a call out to Artem, the fanny, fairy pad, Lobov,” McGregor said. “I’m challenging you to a fight tonight 10:30 p.m. I’ll meet you down at SBG Concorde and we’ll fight for the whole lot. Going through having lawyers message me about defamation and all this suing and all. 

“You’re a little blouse, mate. I’ll see you SBG Concord tonight at 10:30 p.m. and I’ll fight you for the whole lot. Answer this f– call out, you little blouse.” 

McGregor and Lobov were previously close friends for years and even trained together under head coach John Kavanagh. 

Lobov retired from the sport in July 2021, which is also the last time that McGregor fought. He lost to Dustin Poirier for the second time and suffered a broken leg.
