BKFC 9 Results: Jason Knight avenges loss to Artem Lobov with fifth-round KO, Joey Beltran captures heavyweight title

After failing to win over the judges the last time he fought Artem Lobov, Jason Knight made sure to take it out of their hands.

“Mississippi Mean” picked up a fifth-round knockout of Lobov in the lightweight main event of Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 9 at Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Miss., on Saturday to avenge a decision loss from their first meeting this past April. The end came when Knight landed a clean left that appeared to injure Lobov’s eye, prompting the referee to wave off the bout.

Knight got the better of Lobov in the first two rounds, using smart counter-striking and a long jab to keep Lobov at bay.
