To save the expense and hassle of going to court, Conor McGregor proposes punching out Artem Lobov to end their legal dispute.
It’s evident that the relationship between McGregor and Lobov, an experienced MMA fighter and longstanding buddy and training partner, has further deteriorated when recent allegations surfaced that Lobov had filed a lawsuit seeking financial recompense from McGregor’s Proper No. Twelve whiskey business.
On Tuesday, McGregor resorted to social media to attack Lobov, revealing that legal action is being taken but proposing an alternative course of action. According to reports, Lobov is pursuing legal action in order to collect millions of dollars since he feels he hasn’t earned a fair portion of earnings. McGregor, meanwhile, has suggested that the two fighters settle the dispute by fighting each other in the ring.
“This is callout to Artem ‘the fanny, furly-pad’ Lobov. I’m challenging you to a fight tonight, 10:30 p.m. at SBG Concord, and we’ll fight for the whole lot. We’ll fight for the whole lot. Going through and having lawyers message me about defamation and all this, suing and all. You’re a little blouse-mate. We’ll see you at SBG Concord tonight at 10:30 p.m. and we’ll fight you for the whole lot, yeah? Answer this f*cking callout, yeah, you little blouse.
Artem is trying to sue me and my father for defamation now as well ahahaja oh lord, god bless. Artem you look like an uncooked sausage of a thing. Jump on the pan for minute pal you look rough mate. God bless ya pal.”

McGregor and Lobov were formerly quite close, despite the fact that their friendship has now deteriorated. McGregor and others attempted to get revenge on Khabib Nurmagomedov and Lobov in the now-famous bus attack event that occurred in Brooklyn, New York, before UFC 223.
In addition, McGregor has witnessed several of Lobov’s UFC bouts from the cage.
