    Fight would take place at featherweight. Think Artem takes this one. Good striking as is typical with fighters produced in Ireland as well as solid ground game. Cruz is very skilled and p4p is better but Artem is a much bigger guy and Dominic wouldn't be able to do any damage to him as well as not being able to hold him down if went down that route Artem would probably submit him. Artem is a really stocky guy and really strong. Dom is a good striker and has quick feet but you can only dance around for so long. If it goes to a decision Dom wins but lets face it his ideal weight is 135 and at 145 he will lose a lot of speed and be up against bigger guys like Artem that have the power to KO him.

    Thoughts?

    Artem also has the advantage of one of the great coaches helping him along the way

    You're the worst poster around here and it's not even close.

    And we've got some pretty shitty posters in this forum.

    Dude this is one pathetic troll attempt. In order to be a successful troll, you have to make it at least believable.

    I notice nobody has an actual argument for why Cruz would win. Lobov is a big guy. Naturally stocky. He has short reach but that won't be an issue against Dom they have about the same. Artem has had some bad luck in his last few fights but he is about to go on a winning streak. He has the heart and the skill is there he's just not fought well recently

    I think Cruz would be embarrassed to share the octagon with Lobov

    A draw would be a fair result. I am a fan of both so I would have no problems with this

    I would actually pick Cruz to finish Artem lol. He gassed pretty badly in his last fight, he could never match Cruz's pace.

    Cruz stepping up to 145 would make a huge difference though. At the lower weight classes 10lbs is A LOT. Hes a very small man. A great fighter maybe best BW ever but step up from BW-FW is huge. People underestimate that here
