Last Saturday night (June 22, 2019), Artem Lobov defeated former pro boxing champion Pauli Malignaggi in a bare-knuckle boxing fight at BKFC 5.
It was a huge win for Artem, but it was as big for Conor McGregor, who has a bitter rivalry with the former boxing champion.
So it’s to nobody’s surprise that “Notorious” was excited to see his best friend Artem taking on a man who’s been annoying him over the last few years.
But what exactly did “Notorious” tell “The Russian Hammer” after his big win?
“I spoke to Conor, he said that was a good performance. I dominated the fight. I pressed the action all the time and he said it was a very good performance and a great win for me,” Lobov stated during an interview with MMA Fighting.
Interestingly enough, McGregor was rather silent on social media following Artem’s win, as many expected the fiery irishman to gloat about the win and Paulie’s downfall.
Nevertheless, Artem has one of the biggest wins of his combat career and Conor can sit back and smile knowing that all of those pictures he posted about dropping Malignaggi in a sparring match were in fact 100-percent facts.
