It all seemed to be going off without a hitch as Paulie Malignaggi and Artem Lobov weighed in for their Bare Knuckle FC 6 main event on Friday.

Lobov took to the front of the stage and displayed his Russian and Irish flag, respectively representing his homeland and his adopted country, and that’s when Malignaggi’s crew decided to play tough guys from afar.

Someone in Malignaggi’s crew threw a banner of some sort at Lobov, words, were exchanged, and Lobov gave his opponent’s entourage the universal, one-finger salute.

That’s as close as things got to an actual fight, though, as cooler heads prevailed and kept the sides apart.

And that will have to hold fans over for the big grudge match until Saturday night.

You can check out Friday’s incident in the video linked above.

BKFC 6 takes place Saturday night at the Florida State Fair Grounds Expo Hall in Tampa, Fla. and airs on pay-per-view.
