Former UFC competitors Jason "The Kid" Knight and Artem "The Russian Hammer" Lobov came face-to-face ahead of their scheculed meeting in Biloxi, Mississippi on April 6.
Neither fighter would let each other get an edge in word-wise as the two men flapped jaws at one another in an interview which streamed live on the Bare Knuckle FC Facebook page, February 28.
Knight, 26, holds a professional mixed martial arts record of 20-6 and went 4-5 while with the UFC.
Lobov, a 32-year-old fighter from Russia made his name on Season 22 of The Ultimate Fighter as part of Team McGregor, where he worked his way to the finals of the tournament before losing to Ryan Hall. He challenged Cub Swanson in a UFC main event in 2016, after picking up victories over Chris Avila and Alex White. While he lost his last three UFC bouts by decision, he owns 13 professional MMA wins and will take that experience into BKFC action.
Bare Knuckle FC 5 takes place at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum, live on pay-per-view.
