Artem Lobov (Russian: Артём Лобов; born August 11, 1986) is a Russian professional mixed martial artist competing in the featherweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. A professional competitor since 2010, he was a cast member of The Ultimate Fighter: Team McGregor vs. Team Faber, and has also competed for the ACB, as well as the British promotions Cage Warriors and Cage Contender. Fighting out of Dublin, he is a member of SBG Ireland.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Lobov made his professional MMA debut with European promotion Cage Warriors in November 2010. He lost his pro debut to Patrick Vickers via unanimous decision. Prior to his appearance on The Ultimate Fighter, he held a professional record of 11–10–1 with one no contest. A natural featherweight competitor, he also competed at lightweight and welterweight.[3]

Absolute Championship Berkut[edit]

Lobov faced Chechen Rasul Shovhalov on January 31, 2015 at the ACB 13. He won the fight by submission in the second round. [4]

The Ultimate Fighter[edit]

To get into The Ultimate Fighter house, fighters must compete in preliminary fights to advance to the finals. Lobov lost his preliminary bout to Mehdi Baghdad, however coach and teammate Conor McGregor brought him back into the fight as each coach was allowed bring back one additional fighter who lost in the prelims.

In the round bouts he defeated Team USA's James Jenkins by TKO and repeated the outcome in the quarter-finals against Chris Gruetzemacher. In the semis he knocked out Julian Erosa of Team USA to advance to the finals where he would compete against Team Europe's Saul Rodgers, a fellow SBG competitor who trains out of their Manchester branch. Due to visa issues Saul Rogers was removed from the finale and was replaced by Ryan Hall of Team USA.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Lobov faced Ryan Hall on December 11, 2015 at The Ultimate Fighter 22 Finale.[5] Hall defeated Lobov by unanimous decision.[6]

Lobov next faced Alex White on February 6, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 82.[7] He lost the fight by unanimous decision.[8]

After the defeat to White, Lobov was reportedly in negotiations with a regional promotion in Russia. He was given a lifeline when it was announced that Lobov would face UFC newcomer Chris Avila at UFC 202.[9] Lobov won the fight via unanimous decision.[10]

Lobov faced Teruto Ishihara on November 19, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 99.[11] He won the fight via unanimous decision.[12]

Lobov faced Cub Swanson on April 22, 2017 in the main event at UFC Fight Night 108.[13] He lost the fight via unanimous decision.[14] Both participants were awarded Fight of the Night for their performances.[15]

Lobov faced Andre Fili on October 21, 2017 at UFC Fight Night 118.[16] He lost the fight via unanimous decision.[17]

Lobov was initially scheduled to face Alex Caceres on April 7, 2018 at UFC 223,[18] but was removed from the card after taking part in an attack on a bus full of fighters at Barclays Center.[19]
