Artem Lobov’s run inside the cage has been less than stellar. He said, Andre, did a good job, wrestle me and held me down well. Lobov wants the same career trajectory as Conor McGregor’s who are his sparring partners and close friends.
“I wouldn’t mind chancing my arm in boxing. I do know I have a contract with the UFC,” he told BT Sport. “I’ll talk to them. I’ll ask them, would they release me maybe, and allow me to take a few boxing fights?”
Lobov mentioned he needs a release from UFC so he can try some boxing fight, and Paulie Malignaggi wouldn’t be a bad fight. Paulie always behind big paydays, so let’s see.
