BKFC 9: Artem Lobov vs. Jason Knight Results and Highlights

Artem Lobov, Jason Knight

A rematch between former UFC fighters Artem Lobov and Jason Knight headlines tonight’s BKFC 9 event in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Lobov and Knight first fought back on April 6 in the main event of BKFC 5, with ‘The Russian Hammer’ emerging victorious by way of decision.

Lobov would compete again at BKFC 6, where he defeated former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi in a highly anticipated grudge match.

Artem went just 2-5 in seven fights under the UFC banner, but has gone a perfect 2-0 since joining the BKFC ranks.

Meanwhile, Jason Knight will be returning to action for the first time since his initial loss to Lobov. ‘Hick Diaz’ was scheduled to take on UFC veteran Leonard Garcia in the main event of BKFC 7, but ultimately had to pull out of that fight due to injury.

Knight will enter tonight’s BKFC 9 headliner on a four-fight skid.
