Artem Lobov will enter the BKFC 6 main event having recently made a successful bare knuckle debut with a riveting decision victory over fellow UFC veteran Jason Knight. The next most recent chapter of his combat sports career occurred in the UFC’s Octagon. He left the promotion after consecutive decision losses to Cub Swanson, Andre Fili and Michael Johnson.
Paulie Malignaggi, on the other hand, is a former boxing champion. He has not fought since March of 2017, having retired after a knockout loss to Sam Eggington.
While there is plenty of beef between Paulie Malignaggi and Artem Lobov, Malignaggi’s beef began with Lobov’s training partner Conor McGregor, who could well be in attendance for BKFC 6.
“They won’t give confirmation yet but if I’m a betting man, I’m betting he’s coming,” Feldman told MMA Fighting of Conor McGregor this week. “They’re not going to give confirmation and if they are, they’re not going to tell us so we put it out there ‘hey Conor McGregor’s coming to the fight’ and then he’s mobbed. So it’s not going to happen like that but from the conversations I’m having, if I was going to bet on it, he’ll be there but who knows.”
Who do you think will come out on top at BKFC 6?
