Ludovit Klein is a Slovakian mixed martial artist who is currently competing in the featherweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He has been competing professionally since 2019 and has quickly established himself as one of the top contenders in his weight class.
Klein began training in martial arts at the age of 11 and started his professional MMA career 4 years later. During that time, he was able to establish a solid amateur record with victories over some notable names. He then went on to make his professional debut for OKTAGON MMA where he won by submission. After two more impressive wins, he signed with UFC and made his promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 167 against Bruno Silva which ended up being declared a no contest due to accidental eye poke by Klein.
Klein would then go on to have an impressive run in UFC where he dominated opponents such as Shane Young, Brad Katona, Michael Trizano and most recently Gabriel Benitez whom he defeated via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 183 just last month. This victory earned him Performance of the Night award honors from Dana White’s Contender Series while also taking him one step closer towards securing a title shot within his weight class soon enough.
Away from fighting too, Klein is very active outside the octagon as well be it helping out underprivileged children or promoting healthy living habits among children through various charity work initiatives undertaken by him & fellow fighters like Jon Jones & Khabib Nurmagomedov . In fact recently even Forbes named him amongst “30 Under 30” list for 2021 citing these off-the-cage activities done by him throughout 2020 earning praises globally for all those good deeds .
Overall Ludovit Klein stands out due to two important things : Firstly , His stellar performances inside the octagon which have earned him multiple bonuses from UFC president Dana White & secondly , His charitable works outside it which shows us how much impactful fighter can be if they channel their energies into right direction .
