UFC Fight Night 118: Artem Lobov questions his future in MMA after loss to Andre Fili in Gdansk

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Gdansk-Lobov vs Fili Per Haljestam-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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.
