From the looks of it, Conor McGregor training partner Artem Lobov has found an opponent for his next fight.

Over the weekend, at an action-packed ACB show in Russia, Lobov got face to face with another UFC featherweight in Zabit Magomedsharipov. Shortly thereafter, Magomedsharipov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz took to Twitter to stoke this potential fight to life, and Lobov was all for it. See how it went down below:

Magomedsharipov, of course, called for a bout with Lobov shortly after his UFC debut, a September submission of Mike Santiago. Since then, the Dagestani talent has picked up another UFC win, submitting Sheymon Moraes during the UFC’s recent trip to Shanghai.

Lobov meanwhile, recently fell onto a two-fight skid, having lost back to back decisions to Cub Swanson and Andre Fili. These losses were preceded by decision wins over Nate Diaz training partner Chris Avila and Team Alpha Male fighter Teruto Ishihara.

Are you interested in a fight between Artem Lobov and Zabit Magomedsharipov? Who do you think wins?
