Despite all of the unknowns surrounding his UFC future, Artem Lobov has verbally agreed to partake in an absolute barnburner.
The status of Artem Lobov’s UFC future may be completely up in the air following his involvement in the now infamous events of the UFC 223 media day, but today, he verbally agreed to take part in a matchup that has all of the makings of a classic.
Lobov’s time in the world’s top MMA promotion may have seen its fair share of ups and downs but even his most fervent of detractors won’t deny him his reputation as one of the game’s most entertaining scrappers.
Another man who could well boast that title is recent standout Kyle Bochniak, who after putting up one helluva fight against super-prospect Zabit Magomedsharipov in his last outing, managed to earn himself a legion of new fans.
Both men had a respectful interaction on Twitter recently, planting the seeds for an eventual clash that could well be a classic in the making.
