Current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor may be in some hot water after using some choice words to describe Artem Lobov’s UFC Gdansk opponent Andre Fili.

Shortly following Lobov’s unanimous decision loss to Andre Fili at today’s UFC Fight Night 118 event, cameras caught “Mystic Mac” using some gay slurs while attempting to console his longtime friend and training partner.

Multiple clips from UFC cameras, which had better audio when compared to the above video, were quickly deleted from social media.

Artem Lobov issued a statement on Twitter shortly following hiss loss to Fili where he hinted at a possible retirement from fighting.

“The Russian Hammer” has gone 2-4 in the UFC and 13-14-1 overall in mixed martial arts.

All six of Lobov’s UFC bouts went the distance, including a five-round “fight of the night” war with Cub Swanson this past April.

Meanwhile, UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor recently returned to training earlier this month.

It is expected that “Mystic Mac” will attempt to make his first ever lightweight title defense in his next bout against either current interim title holder Tony Ferguson or bitter rival Nate Diaz.

No event has officially been named for Conor McGregor’s return to the UFC, but rumors of UFC 219 on December 30 have been floating around for months.

Do you think Conor McGregor will receive any punishment for his choice words backstage at today’s UFC Fight Night 118 event in Gdasnk, Poland? Sound off PENN Nation!
