The gloves are off (again!): Artem Lobov to face former foe Jason Knight in Bare Knuckle rematch (VIDEO)

MMA star 'The Russian Hammer' Artem Lobov will look to make it three wins in a row in Bare Knuckle FC when he faces the man he defeated on his debut, fellow former UFC featherweight Jason 'The Kid' Knight.

The pair will face off at BKFC 9 on November 16 in an eagerly-anticipated rematch of their bloody war from earlier this year.

Lobov took the unanimous decision victory on that occasion at BKFC 5 from Biloxi, Mississippi after a brutal five-round battle that went all the way to the scorecards.

The Dublin-based Russian then went on to take on, and defeat, former boxing world champion Paulie Malignaggi under Bare Knuckle rules, with Knight issuing a rallying cry to his former opponent as he made his way to the ring to face the New Yorker.
