"Choo Choo Motherfuckers!" - Passionate Artem Lobov Makes Weight For UFC Gdansk

"Choo Choo Motherfuckers!" - Passionate Artem Lobov Makes Weight For UFC Gdansk

Gdansk is a place that Irish sporting fans will be familiar with from the session at Euro 2012 following a battering from eventual tournament winners Spain, but Artem Lobov will be hoping to be the one dishing out the battering at UFC Fight Night 118 on Saturday night.

With that highly questionable intro out of the way, the SBG man made weight on Friday afternoon and he was pretty damn happy about it.

Lobov is facing Andre 'Touchy' Fili on the preliminary card which will be shown on UFC Fight Pass, and upon learning that he had successfully made weight he let everyone in attendance know just how much adversity he had overcome to do so.

Injuries, sickness, big weight-cuts, hurricane Ophelia, you can't stop The Siberian Express!

Yes, he really did call out hurricane Ophelia, what a man.

He is dead right too, it feels like there are more fighters pulling-out than ever before, yet Artem Lobov will show up when you book him regardless of how difficult or taxing the preparations may be.

You hear a lot of fighters claim that they will fight anyone at any time, but Lobov actually would, even in the middle of a hurricane. Choo choo indeed.

UFC Gdansk features Donald Cerrone vs Darren Till as a seriously exciting main event and coverage begins from 8pm on BT Sport ESPN.
