Artem Lobov is all set to fight former two-time world boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi at the Florida State Fairgrounds Entertainment Hall in Tampa, Fla.

But ahead of the fight, he talked about his teammate Conor McGregor and he said that the Irishmen would beat the current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in a rematch as he beat Nate Diaz after losing the first fight. McGregor is coming off of a fourth-round submission loss to Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 which took place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

“If you look at the past … look at what happened with Diaz,” Lobov said in an interview to Business Insider. “When he realized a mistake, he said, ‘Okay, no problem,’ took it on the chin, went back to the drawing board, completely took new approach toward the fight camp and got the win. I think it would be no different this time.”

He said that a loss in MMA doesn’t mean much as the best fight the best, compared to Boxing where most champions are undefeated as they refuse to fight each other.

“The sport of boxing has ruined this for everybody by padding the record, building these fake, undefeated guys,” he said. “In boxing, you look around and everyone is undefeated, everyone is a world champion, and nobody wants to fight each other.

“So the result is, the fans have this wrong understanding of how the competitive world works. In a competitive world, everybody loses. There is no issue with a loss. It’s how you come back from it that will define you. And I believe Conor will be victorious [against Nurmagomedov].”
