Conor McGregor uses some choice words while attempting to console Artem Lobov

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.

"I personally feel that I'm two knockouts away from becoming a legitimate main event guy".

"What's got into you mate? I've made some adjustments and hopefully I'll be able to get it against Fili", Lobov said.

UFC Gdansk features Donald Cerrone vs Darren Till as a seriously exciting main event and coverage begins from 8pm on BT Sport ESPN. The decision to place Lobov in a headliner received mixed reviews, however, due to the fact that the Russian was 2-2 in UFC action heading into the fight. It's nice to see that kind of camaraderie in the dog-eat-dog world of combat sports and it's nice to see that McGregor can train with somebody and resist the urge to bury their career on social media with heavily edited videos (see: Paulie Malignaggi, Chris van Heerden). Standing at attention, he shadow-boxed with each move of the close fight and yelled out his own instructions for Lobov. Your status and following matters when it comes to receiving top of the card fights.

First things first, however, as Lobov will need to get by Fili, who is a well rounded and durable fighter.
