Artem Lobov vs. Jason Knight 2 set for BKFC 9 in November

Artem Lobov and Jason Knight Bare Knuckle FC

The first bare-knuckle boxing match between former UFC fighters Artem Lobov and Jason Knight was a bloody war and now they are set to do it all again.

Lobov and Knight are scheduled to meet in a rematch at BKFC 9 on Nov. 16 from the Mississippi Coast Convention Center in Biloxi, Miss.

The first fight took place back in April with Lobov getting the better of Knight in a five-round war that left both fighters beaten up and bloodied.

Lobov’s win helped set him up for one of the most talked about fights of the year when he earned a unanimous decision win over former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi back in June.

As for Knight, this will be his first fight since facing Lobov earlier this year. He was originally scheduled to return in August to face fellow former UFC fighter Leonard Garcia in a bare knuckle boxing match but he was forced to pull out due to a rib injury.

Now Knight will get the chance to avenge his previous loss when he faces off with Lobov in the main event of BKFC 9 in November.
