McGregor Proud Of “Animal” Lobov
After Artem Lobov went the distance with Jason Knight at Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship V’s main event, his training partner Conor McGregor would take to social media.
McGregor praised his SBG Ireland teammate after going all five rounds with Knight and grabbing the unanimous decision victory, crowing his friend “deserved a new contract to fight Paulie Malignaggi.
What an animal!
Proud of you @RusHammerMMA! Amazing fight
Paulie’s nice and quiet all of a sudden and that’s not like him haha
We want a new contract for the @RusHammerMMA for this next bout!
It has been earned and now deserved!
What a great showing @Jasonthekid23.
Big respect! https://t.co/dQKWIKCRd0

Last week Lobov told MMA Junkie radio that his deal with the BKFC was only three fights, but now may be in a position to renegotiate with the win on Saturday, as a fight with Malignaggi becomes possible for June.
