Irish fighter Artem Lobov said he considers himself to be one of the most successful mixed martial arts athletes (MMA). He expressed his opinion on the program of journalist Ariel Hallwani, available on YouTube.
Lobov, arguing about the nature of success, noted that it is not measured by the number of wins. He refused to name a successful fighter who won in 10 fights of 10 if the fans did not observe those victories. Lobov recalled that his fans were watched by many fans, which is why he considered himself one of the most successful fighters.
During his career, an athlete with Russian roots had 34 fights, of which 16 lost, 16 were won, one was declared invalid, another ended in a draw. In October, Lobov was to meet Zubaira Tukhugov in the UFC Fight Night 138 tournament, but the promotion pushed the Russians away because of their involvement in the fray after the battle of Habib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor. In the end, Lobov came out against American Michael Johnson and lost.
Lobov is a close friend of the Irish MacGregor.
