Esteban Ribovics is an up-and-coming mixed martial artist currently competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Born and raised in Spain, Esteban grew up with a love for combat sports. He began training in Muay Thai at the age of 11, before taking up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) at 14. After showing promise as a fighter, he made his professional debut just two years later. His early career saw him compete predominately across Europe, where he quickly accumulated an impressive 12-2 record before making the jump to the UFC in 2019.

Since joining the organization, Esteban has gone from strength to strength with seven consecutive wins so far – four by submission and three by way of knockout or TKO decision. His most recent victory was against veteran Antonio Carvalho at UFC Fight Night 183: Anderson vs Smith on February 20th 2021; earning himself both “Performance of The Night” honors and his first appearance inside the octagon on national television.

In addition to his fighting career, Esteban is heavily involved in charitable work alongside numerous organizations including Riders For Health and UNICEF which sees him travel around Spain helping disadvantaged children gain access to education materials such as books and computers that they otherwise wouldn’t have access too due to their socio economic status. He also found time earlier this year to launch his own gym franchise ‘Ribovics MMA’ where he provides classes for all experience levels from beginners through advanced with a focus on self defense rather than competition oriented training .

Outside of his professional life , Esteban enjoys spending time with friends travelling , watersports , mountain biking & gaming . These days when not actively competing or educating others about MMA you can usually find him studying Psychology In an effort towards furthering his knowledge base within this ever evolving sport . With more fights already scheduled for 2021 there’s no doubt that Estebans star will continue rising over the coming months & years while providing us all something we can be proud of !
