As Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 6 (BKFC 6) gears up, Malignaggi vs Lobov is the defining fight of the event. However, the bigger question here is going to be – is Conor McGregor going to be present at ringside to support his friend Artem Lobov? To add to this, Malignaggi and McGregor have fallen out of late. The answer to this question, as per many, is YES.
Let us take a closer look at why McGregor is likely to be present ringside during this match.
McGregor’s Beef with Malignaggi
Conor McGregor has been rather pissed with Paulie Malignaggi. The latter was Conor’s sparring partner at a time when he was preparing for his boxing match against Floyd ‘the money’ Mayweather. However, the two have since had a falling out, and Malignaggi even posted a video of him beating up McGregor during a sparring session.
In response, Conor had posted multiple images of him beating Malignaggi as well. This adds another layer to the ongoing Malignaggi vs Lobov match.

His presence could also help Lobov intimidate Malignaggi during the match. The event is all set to take place on the 22nd of June (9 PM ET). Stay tuned with us for more details about this!
