Conor McGregor challenges Artem Lobov to an unregulated brawl after second lawsuit

Conor McGregor would rather resolve his legal disputes with Artem Lobov outside of a courtroom.

The Irishman said as much during a callout to a former friend who is now suing him for millions of dollars.

UFC veteran Artem Lobov filed a complaint in Ireland’s High Court. He alleged that he founded McGregor’s well-known Proper No. Twelve brand.

McGregor sold the rights to the parent company of Jose Cuervo last year for an estimated $600 million. Lobov is demanding $30 million, or 5% of the earnings.

Conor McGregor proposed the two meet up and resolve the issue on the streets in a response to the lawsuit.

He tweeted:

“This is callout to Artem ‘the fanny, furly-pad’ Lobov. I’m challenging you to a fight tonight, 10:30 p.m. at SBG Concord, and we’ll fight for the whole lot. We’ll fight for the whole lot. Going through and having lawyers message me about defamation and all this, suing and all. You’re a little blouse-mate. We’ll see you at SBG Concord tonight at 10:30 p.m. and we’ll fight you for the whole lot, yeah? Answer this f**king callout, yeah, you little blouse.”

“Artem is trying to sue me and my father for defamation now as well ahahaja oh lord, god bless. Artem you look like an uncooked sausage of a thing. Jump on the pan for minute pal you look rough mate. God bless ya pal.”

Despite having a more than ten-year mixed martial arts career, Artem Lobov is most known for playing a significant role in the notorious Conor McGregor bus assault of 2018. A video showed Khabib and his squad cornering Lobov in a hotel corridor as the beef between lightweight opponent McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov heated up.

In the footage, it seems like Nurmagomedov struck Lobov over remarks he had made. Conor McGregor flew to Brooklyn, New York, with more than a dozen other people after hearing about the confrontation. He stormed the loading dock at Barclays Center.

McGregor found the UFC bus he believed Nurmagomedov was travelling on and threw a dolly through the glass. McGregor was detained after injuring many passengers, among them Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa.

Lobov previously revealed he turned down $1 million from McGregor for the idea for Proper Twelve.
