Michael Johnson Confirmed That Artem Lobov Really Is A Man Of His Word! Michael Johnson and Artem Lobov fought at the co-main event of UFC Moncton. It was one of the best fights in 2018. Fighters were throwing everything they had. \u201cThe Menace\u201d landed a big left hand in the second round. During the third, Johnson delivered big jab that rocked his rival and also had one outstanding takedown. It gave him a critical advantage on the judges\u2019 scorecards. The American fighter won the match via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27). Johnson accepted the fight on a very short notice. Lobov\u2019s opponent, Zubaira Tukhugov, was removed off the bout for his role in\u00a0UFC 229 post-fight incident. Unfortunately for \u201cThe Menace\u201d, he weighed 147 lbs, while the limit for UFC Featherweight non-title match is 146 lbs. In the first place, \u201cThe Russian Hammer\u201d didn\u2019t want to accept 20% of rival\u2019s purse. But he had no choice. The rule says he has no right to decline it. Yet, Artem Lobov promised to give the money back to his opponent. Many were wondering whether McGregor\u2019s teammate is a man of his word. But Michael Johnson confirmed today on his Twitter that Lobov wasn\u2019t just talking. \u201cThe Menace\u201d also added that Conor\u2019s teammate earned his respect too. https:\/\/twitter.com\/FollowTheMenace\/status\/1060539022366441474 In my book respect is always earned, never given. Hats off to @rushammer for not only a tough fight our last outing, but also being a man of your word. Respect was earned, hands down. #victory #teammenace #securethebag #bagsecured #menacecity #ufc https:\/\/twitter.com\/RusHammerMMA\/status\/1060571828056477696 My hat is also off to \u201cThe Russian Hammer\u201d. He fulfilled the promise. There should be more fighters like Artem Lobov. Did Conor\u2019s teammate and sparring partner earn your respect too after this fantastic move? Would you do the same thing if you were in his place? What a great athlete, wait ago legend!
