Artem Lobov Gets Realistic, Believes He Should Get Cut By The UFC After All His Losses

UFC featherweight contender Artem Lobov hasn’t had the best run during his time in the octagon. Over the course of his two-year, and six fight UFC career, “The Russian Hammer” has gone just 2-4.

His most recent outing was a loss to Team Alpha Male standout Andre Fili at UFC Fight Night 118. The defeat was his second straight as he was also soundly beaten by top featherweight contender Cub Swanson at UFC Fight Night 108 this past April.

At this point, Lobov isn’t so sure he meets the standards of being a UFC fighter.

“Now that I have lost to Fili — and this is no disrespect to him — but now with two losses in a row, and the last loss was not exactly to the best guy out there, I feel like other people in my situation would be cut,” Artem Lobov told MMAfighting earlier.

With back to back losses, Lobov says he doesn’t want to be a hypocrite and no longer thinks he’s worthy of a UFC contract.

“If someone didn’t deserve to be in the UFC, in the past I was always the first guy to tell them, so now I feel like I don’t really deserve a UFC contract.” He continued, “It’s only fair that I get cut as well.”
