The Notorious Conor McGregor is MMA’s biggest star. He’s so famous and infamous that even his mainstay training partners get brushed with his fame.
BJJ stand out Dillon Danis, has his own legion of followers ever since being brought on by McGregor, and so does UFC featherweight Artem Lobov.
Lobov is one of the UFC’s biggest products coming out of Russia, and despite his Russian heritage, he has the country of Ireland behind him as well.
When Lobov fights, fight fans tune in, and one need look no further than his multiple training camps with Conor McGregor to understand why.
Now, taking issue with fallen former champion BJ Penn, Lobov issued a real-life threat to the Hawaiian over twitter.
Penn can’t leave his house these days without losing inside the cage, and apparently that transfers to twitter as well. Because in a tweet, the former UFC champion stated, “Everyone from @Arnoldbfa and @RusHammerMMA [Artem Lobov] have turned down fights with @zabit_mma. #UFC223”
This prompted Lobov to respond with,
“Get your facts straight mate!! I know where you live”
