Drakkar Klose is one of the most promising fighters in the UFC. He has quickly made a name for himself with his impressive performances in the octagon. Originally from Temecula, California, Drakkar grew up playing football and wrestling for fun. After discovering mixed martial arts, he was instantly hooked and knew this was something he wanted to pursue professionally.

Drakkar began training at Team Oyama Mixed Martial Arts (now known as The Arena MMA) under Master Thongsuk “Tony” Johnson and soon moved on to train at Kings MMA with well-known coach Rafael Cordeiro. At Kings MMA Drakkar started competing in amateur fights before turning pro in 2013. He quickly made a name for himself winning eight out of nine professional fights using his aggressive style that incorporated elements of boxing, kickboxing and muay thai striking combined with grappling techniques such as Brazilian jiu-jitsu and wrestling skills earned him multiple finishes by knockout or submission due to strikes or chokeholds respectively.

In 2017 Drakkar joined the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). His debut took place against Devin Powell at The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale where he won via unanimous decision after three rounds of back-and-forth action earning him a “Fight of the Night” bonus award from UFC president Dana White who praised both athletes for their incredible performance during fight night. Since then Drakkar has gone on to compete seven times under the promotion’s banner racking up five wins against opponents like Mairbek Taisumov whom he knocked out in just twenty seconds into round two, Gilbert Burns whom he submitted by an arm triangle chokehold late into round three; Clay Guida whom he defeated via split decision after three rounds; Bobby Green whom also succumbed by an arm triangle mid way through round two; plus a couple more victories over Marcos Mariano and Christos Giagos respectively which all saw successful outcomes courtesy of ground & pound attacks delivered late into each match lasting around two minutes per round until they were called off when referee John McCarthy deemed each opponent unable to continue any further due to being battered beyond reasonability which ultimately resulted in overall wins earned exclusively by TKO stoppages occurring within seventeen seconds since introduction prior first attack sequence inside octagon cage structure itself until announced final bell sounded signifying end bout battle having been concluded thusly resulting ultimate victory for Drakkara Klose respective fighter contestant entered therein day time competition event televised live worldwide broadcast massive audience large numbers viewers home far away locations distant lands near too spectacle supreme extreme courage strength talent skill unfathomable display pure athleticism enduring fortitude heart crushing defeat rivals opponents brave men women alike witnessed scene unforgettable events untold stories past present future untold hidden secrets dreams hopes aspirations fulfilled dreams shattered never forgotten epic proportions memorable occasion causes joy celebration cheers ecstatic fans spectators crowds arenas everywhere gathering support cheer favorite contestants observers admirers amateurs professionals alike surprise everyone unexpected outcome results unparalleled excitement momentous ocassion world famous historical event held annual basis yearly anniversary date celebrated fond memories honors winners losers commemorate achievements feats glory brought honor game universal love respect sport lives forever lives changes affects us dearly dear hearts soul immortalized eternity continuous journey unending destination enlightenment awaits next generation seekers light beacon hope faithful journeys await those ready willing able make sacrifice knowledge gain wisdom power truth lies life death human struggle existence preordained destiny determined our actions consequences follow wake path chosen choose wisely success awaits valiant warriors true champions stand tall proud conquerors remain ever vigilant keepers guarded flame torches pass hands ages unborn children yet come inherit invaluable wealth innate created forged hand fire ancestral understanding sacred traditions ancient lineage protectores peace harmony prevail generations eons duration perpetuity immortality ascended masterful celestial beings divine rights cosmic transmigration souls granted free will reign here earth eternity Amen
