Artem Lobov Willing To Donate Half His Purse To Children’s Charity To Get A Spot Inside The Octagon

Irish artist Artem Lobov is looking for a fight and has extended a compelling offer to UFC President Dana White.

The 32-year old artist reached out to Dana White with a tweet for a slot inside the octagon. According to the Russian Hammer, he is willing to pay half of his prize money to a children’s charity, if the UFC gives him a chance to execute his prowess inside the cage.

“Still here, still ready to go!! I’ll donate half my purse to childrens charity, in case you needed another reason @danawhite . Where are the Fertittas when you need them, they always respected and rewarded the true fighter!!” – Artem Lobov

Artem Lobov has faced three back-to-back defeats via unanimous decision against artists Cub SwansonAndre Fili and Michael Johnson. The Russian-heritage artist was scheduled to face off Zubaira Tukhugov at UFC Fight Night 138 on October 27. Unfortunately, Tukhugov could not compete due to his involvement in the UFC 229 post-fight melee. Though the fight proceeded as a catchweight bout with Michael Johnson, Lobov lost the fight via unanimous decision.


Although Lobov doesn’t rank as the brass of the promotion, he is known to come up with exhilarating performances.


Lobov’s recent request to the UFC follows his desire to fight Renato Moicano at UFC 231 as a quick replacement, which he expressed via a Tweet.


“Let me fight Moicano if no1 gets injured @danawhite ,I am 1 of the few to never turn down fights and 1 of even fewer to never pull out, this is the Ultimate Fighting not Ultimate stand by to fight,so lets make Moicano fight!!” – Artem Lobov

The Brazilian Moicano was all set to face off Mirsad Bektic in Ontario, Canada on December 8. An injury caused Bektic to leave his spot. The fight was ultimately called off.


UFC 231
 will air this weekend as pay-per-view, headlined with a high-octane bout between Max Holloway and Brian Ortega.
