    From Mike Chiappetta of MmaFighting:

    https://www.mmafighting.com/2019/6/...aggi-is-coming-for-blood-money-and-an-apology

    Some quotes:

    “There’s no way realistically possible to have a fight this easy against a bum of this level unless there is a fan base this stupid.”

    ...

    “As an adult, you shrug that stuff off,” he said, “but I have nieces and nephews less than 10 years old that are exposed to this, and this is one of the things he has to pay for.”

    ...

    “I expect an apology and an admittance of the lies,” he said. “If I get that, there can be respect, no problem. We’re both men, and we should be up front as men. I’ve been nothing but up front. I think if there was mutual respect, he would admit all they did was lie and were hyping things. Then we could have respect and be cool about it. But if he keeps lying about it, I might beat his ass again after I’m done.”

    He's not wrong. There are many posters here who think Artem has a chance and are excited for this fight. Same ignorant people who thought Conor could beat Floyd.

    He has a point. He should run through Artem. He was a former boxing champ and now he's fighting an MMA fighter who's like 15-17. With that being said, I hope Artem knocks him cold.

    I wouldn’t buy that fight. Guy calls mma fans idiots and expects them to pay to see him fight?

    Somebody needs to tell that genius he’s fighting for bareknuckle organization and not an mma promoter.

    I’ll go ahead and put my name out there, I think Artem has a good chance, in fact, he’s my favorite going in.

    I thought he had a chance until I found out they are wearing gloves. Now it’s just a boxing match with the knuckle exposed. No interest

    Excuse me? How are they wearing gloves in a bareknuckle fight?

    Florida commission rules. Probably something Paulie new before signing the contract. It’s hard to believe the promotion wouldn’t know this before announcing their biggest fight

    I've enjoyed laughing at the people who complain about Paulie's attention-whoring yet post a topic about every little thing he says and does :)

    you could try to argue that Artem has a 'good chance' (I would disagree), but what criteria underlies your rating of Artem as the favourite?

    This. Having said that, it could get ugly.

    Could be the fact that Artemus is the GOAT

    Artem takes this. He is fit as fck. Screw skill in this situation. It's get close, clinch and punch like fck for 2 mins.
    there will be something lower on the hand, my understanding is it's still bareknuckle, (as per regulation of florida that fighters have to wear gloves - but what a 'glove' is isn't specified. So they're working around it by having some wrap lower down on the wrist or something - I think and hope) so knuckles exposed and slicing.
    This doesn't play like regular boxing at all. Paulies pitter patter style won't translate. Here's the rub, bareknuckle Paulie's pitter patter will actually be capable of damage and knocking down Artem if he sits down on the punches and throws. It's chaos and a crap shoot, but Artem has been more active, and Artem can take a punch.
    I'm on Artem on this.
