According to the report, the Russian FSO’s primary function is protecting “high ranking state officials, including president Vladimir Putin.”
The training session took place at a secret training base at the heart of the Kremlin.
Speaking after the training session, “The Russian Hammer” revealed it was a dream come true to be invited to the Kremlim.
“I was absolutely honored to be invited to the Kremlin,” Lobov told RT.com.
“It has been a dream of mine ever since I was a kid. And of course I never even dreamt to be invited to train the special-forces. So I was very excited, and I enjoyed every second of it.”
In the interview, Lobov revealed that he hopes to get back to action at UFC London on March 17.
Conor McGregor took to Instagram to declare how proud he was of his chief sparring partner and SBG teammate.
I am proud of my brother Artem @rushammer Lobov. Inside the world famous Kremlin compound discussing and teaching our training methods to the Russian federal reserve on behalf of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
