Update: Artem Lobov to replace injured Dillon Danis on May 27th Eagle FC event against Kevin Lee

The Goat is back! SBG fighter Artem Lobov returning to MMA and shocking the world joining Eagle FC.

In his first fight returning, Lobov will fill the shoes of fellow Conor McGregor training teammate Dillon Danis who recently fell out of the fight due to a fractured labia. The Russian Hammer will now fight Kevin Lee on May 27. Lobov was quick to comment on the return, stating; “I do this for Dillon, I do this for Conor, I do this for Ireland.”

Many were surprised about the return to the cage for Lobov who retired in 2021 after being TKO’d in BKFC but Artem says this fight isn’t business, it’s personal. “People call me the GOAT for a reason, I kick, I bite, I claw and will eat anything, if Kevin Lee thinks he can beat me then I’d like to see him try.”

EagleFC President Khabib Nurmagomedov left no official comment but a source said he was quote “ecstatic about bringing the Hammer Home.” The Main event Lee VS Lobov will remain 3 rounds.
