Artem Lobov returns to preview his upcoming bareknuckle boxing debut against Jason Knight at BKFC5 on April 6th. Lobov requested his release from the UFC earlier this year after receiving some lucrative offers from other promotions and not being able to get the matchups he was hoping for with the company. Subsequently, BKFC made Artem a six-figure contract offer and the SBG staple felt it was a no-brainer to sign up for the next chapter of his combat sports career. ‘The Russian Hammer’ gives us the details on negotiations with BKFC, his thoughts on transitioning to bareknuckle and how it compliments his fighting style. We’ll also hear Lobov’s prediction for his debut against Knight, his anticipation of a showdown with Paulie Malignaggi, and clear up some rumors about Conor McGregor leaving the Straight Blast Gym in Ireland.
Dominick Reyes joins us to recap his decision victory over Volkan Oezdemir in London last weekend. While Volkan protested the judges scorecards, Reyes is confident in his performance and believes that the matchup truly tested his resolve as a fighter. Now looking to learn and evolve from the experience on his continued campaign for light-heavyweight gold, ‘The Devastator’ believes that one more impressive win over a top-tier opponent puts him next in line to face Jon Jones. We’ll breakdown the fight against Volkan in depth, and get his reaction to Oezdemir claiming that Dominick’s own corner told Volkan they felt he lost the bout. Reyes also details his time in London exploring the city, what opponent he has in mind going forward on his march towards the title, and when he might make a return to action.
All that and much more!
