Andre Fili Gives Respect to Artem Lobov Ahead of Their UFC Gdansk Fight

Andre Fili Gives Respect to Artem Lobov Ahead of Their UFC Gdansk Fight

We’re just a couple of hours away from Poland’s mid-afternoon UFC event, a place that some MMA fans claim Artem Lobov doesn’t belong. They come out of the woodwork every fight. Lobov will be taking on…

“I’VE BEEN AROUND HIM A LOT MORE THAN OTHER GUYS THAT I GET PICKED TO FIGHT. THERE IS NO BAD BLOOD, THOUGH. THERE’S NO DISRESPECT. I DON’T FEEL ANY NEGATIVE EMOTION TOWARDS HIM AS A PERSON. HE’S ALRIGHT. HE’S TOUGH, HE PUTS ON EXCITING FIGHTS AND HE’S GOT A GOOD CHIN – ALL THESE THINGS MAKE FOR AN EXCITING FIGHT. I’M JUST EXCITED TO GET IN THERE TO LET MY HANDS GO AND GET THIS WIN. HE DOESN’T HAVE THE BEST RECORD, BUT HE’S FOUGHT SOME OF THE BEST GUYS IN THE WORLD. I THINK MOST OF THE PEOPLE WHO TALK ABOUT HIM NOT DESERVING TO BE IN THE UFC ARE GUYS WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN IN A CAGE AND HAVE FOUGHT FOR A LIVING.”
