Artem Lobov Shows Off Gruesome Scars of War after Debut Bare Knuckle Win

'The Russian Hammer' Artem Lobov kicked off his Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship career with a hard-earned decision win over fellow former UFC star Jason 'The Kid' Knight, but as his pics show, he didn't come out unscathed.

The Ireland-based Russian fighter took on Knight in the main event of the Bare Knuckle FC 5 event at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi.

And the pair went toe to toe for five full rounds in a bout that left men cut, battered and bruised after an action-packed contest that won the respect of those watching, as well as each other.

Lobov ran out the unanimous decision winner, earning scores of 48-47, 48-47 and 48-46 to claim the victory.

The Bare Knuckle 5 event on Saturday night featured a host of former UFC stars who enjoyed a mixed night of results at the event.

Former castmate on The Ultimate Fighter Season 1, Chris Leben, claimed a 25-second knockout victory in the night's co-main event bout while another former TUF housemate, Johnny Bedford, earned a KO of his own in the fourth round of his contest.

It wasn't such a good night for former UFC heavyweight Chase Sherman, who fought opponent Sam Shewmaker to a split draw, despite winning all five rounds on one judge's scorecard. The overall scores read 50-45 (Sherman), 48-48 (Shewmaker), 48-48.
