Conor McGregor’s teammate Artem “The Russian Hammer” Lobov has been released by the UFC. Lobov himself took to Twitter to announce that he was no longer part of the premier Mixed Martial Arts organisation.

Lobov also tagged rival MMA promotions Bellator MMA, KSW, Rizin Fighting Federation, ONE fighting championship and bare-knuckle organisation Bare Knuckle FC.

Lobov was 2-5 in the UFC in past three years. His last three fights were unanimous decision losses to Michael Johnson, Andre Fili and Cub Swanson. However, UFC were keen to feature in the card in April, but the Russian Hammer wanted to fight early, so he asked his release from the Organisation with three fights left.

However, Lobov then took to Twitter to call British-Pakistani boxing star Amir Khan and former welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi.

He then said that Boxing is a great sport which lacked entertainment and then implied that him trying his hands in the sweet science will bring the entertainment back to the sport.

However, it’s worth noting that Lobov and Khan have had their part of Twitter beef back in 2017 when Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather was announced.
