Artem Lobov: \u201cI Told UFC To Pay Michael Johnson In Full, I Always Show Respect Where It's Due\u201d Artem Lobov has just promised that he plans to do one of the most generous acts! Michael Johnson missed weight on Friday morning weigh-in and he was fined by 20% of his purse. According to the rules, Lobov has to accept this money. But \u201cThe Russian Hammer\u201d plans to return money to his rival after their showdown! According to Ariel Helwani, Artem Lobov is very grateful to Michael Johnson for accepting the fight on a short notice.\u00a0\u201cThe Menace\u201d missed weight by one pound. https:\/\/twitter.com\/arielhelwani\/status\/1055833911576616960 "Michael Johnson, who accepted tomorrow\u2019s fight against Artem Lobov on two weeks\u2019 notice, missed weight this AM by one pound. Lobov\u2019s head coach @John_Kavanagh confirms Lobov has accepted the fight. First reported by @MikeBohnMMA. 20% of Johnson\u2019s purse goes to Lobov. However ..." Lobov even gave Johnson a word he\u2019ll refund his money. https:\/\/twitter.com\/arielhelwani\/status\/1055834442575552514 "I\u2019m told @RusHammerMMA went up to Johnson afterwards and said he will make sure MJ gets the full 20% back bc he is appreciative of the fact that MJ took the fight on short notice. The rules are Lobov has to take the money but he gave Johnson his word he\u2019ll get it back to him." It looks like this is a big sign of respect from "the Russian Hammer". https:\/\/twitter.com\/arielhelwani\/status\/1055842485681950721 I asked Artem Lobov about his decision to give back Johnson\u2019s fine. \u201cI told the UFC to save me the trouble of transferring the cash and just pay him in full,\u201d he said. I\u2019m happy to sign any waivers. \u201cI show respect where it\u2019s due,\u201d he added. \u201cAlways.\u201d Artem Lobov was slated to fight Zubaira Tukhugov at the co-main event of UFC Moncton this Saturday. Yet, after the famous UFC 229 post-fight brawl, Tukhugov was removed from the fight card. Khabib threatened to break the contract but UFC didn\u2019t let Zubaira face Lobov. Nate Diaz also "kindly asked Dana White" to release him instead of \u201cKabob\u2019s friend\u201d. In the end, even Artem Lobov himself threatened. Lobov wants the match against Tukhugov so badly. He is even ready to chase him in some other promotion. But it looks like he won't step inside the octagon with "Warrior" soon. What do you think, can Artem Lobov defeat Michael Johnson? He lost the last two fights from Cub Swanson and Andre Fili, both via unanimous decision. On the other hand, Michael Johnson comes off a\u00a0split decision victory over Andre Fili. Lobov Vs Johnson could easily go to the decision. Both fighters have a great cardio. Also, do you think Lobov\u2019s act is something every athlete should follow?
