Artem Lobov to Team Diaz: “This isn’t just a fight to us. This is a war”


Speaking with Niall and Petesy on Talking Brawls on UFC 202’s Artem Lobov says Team Diaz are not the most intelligent stable in the world and says “they should prepare for a war”.

Lobov faces Nate Diaz’ team mate Chris Avila on August 20th at UFC 202: ‘Diaz Vs. McGregor’ in Las Vegas.

Nate Diaz recently claimed “everyone” was on steroids but the “Russian Hammer” says otherwise.

Lobov believes Team Diaz are the ones who should have a look in the mirror. The Russian born Dubliner also believes Diaz lacks intelligence.

“Nate is Nate, he never really puts too much thought into what he says. Let’s be honest, they’ve got one brain cell between the whole team, and maybe that wasn’t his time to use it. Conor said this before that two of his team mates tested positive for steroids; when he says that does he mean his own team or what does he mean? Fuck knows what he means, I’m not even sure he himself even knows what he means.”

Lobov is coming off two losses in the octagon but believes the UFC debutante Avila’s style plays into his hands. The SBG product doesn’t think it would be a good idea for Avila to stand and trade with him.

“His style relies a lot on being a tough guy, he does get hit a lot. If you’re going to get hit a lot against me, it’s not going to end very well for you.”

Artem’s team mate, friend and training partner Conor McGregor headlines the UFC 202 card in the T-mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The “Russian Hammer” believes it’s very much a team versus team scenario and that they should be preparing for war, issuing a challenge to Diaz and Avila.

“Get ready for war guys, this isn’t just a fight to us. This is a war, so bring it.”
