This is not the first time that Lobov has turned heads for his abilities outside of the cage. The 33-year-old made headlines when he spoke fluent Spanish at the BKFC 6 post-fight press conference earlier this summer.
Artem Lobov (13-15-1 MMA, 2-0 BKFC) is coming off a unanimous decision victory over former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi in his most recent effort at June’s Bare Knuckle FC event in Tampa.
That win moved Lobov to 2-0 under the BKFC banner, as he had previously defeated Jason Knight in his promotional debut.
After defeating Paulie Malignaggi, Artem Lobov campaigned for a fight with Amir Khan. However, it now appears that ‘The Russian Hammer’ will most likely rematch Jason Knight in his next BKFC appearance.
What did you think of Artem Lobov’s dance moves showcased in the above video? Do you think ‘Dancing with the Stars’ will be calling up another former UFC fighter? Sound off in the comments section PENN Nation!
