After losing to Andre Fili at yesterday’s (Sat., Oct. 21, 2017) UFC Fight Night 118 event in Gdansk, Poland to Andre Fili via unanimous decision, Artem Lobov is at a crossroads in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career.
In fact, “The Russian Hammer” took to social media to briefly talk about his future, hinting at retirement after suffering back-to-back losses, losing to Cub Swanson earlier this year, as well.
Not sure what the future holds dont want to be retiring & coming back a thousand times. Will think about the futue & update.Thank u all— Artem Lobov (@RusHammerMMA) October 21, 2017
Lobov’s run inside the Octagon has been less than stellar, as he has racked up a 2-4 record inside the eight-walled cage since leaving The Ultimate Fighter (TUF).
As one of Conor McGregor’s main sparring partners and close friends, Lobov has come under scrutiny by some given the opportunities he’s had inside the cage, though no one should question Lobov’s place on the UFC roster, according to this guy.
Nevertheless, Artem’s fighting future seems to be up in the air at the moment.
