Martin ‘Buday’ Buday is a Slovak professional mixed martial artist, currently competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s middleweight division.
He was born on April 15th 1984 in Slovakia and began his fighting career at the age of 17 when he joined his local judo club. He trained hard and soon became an accomplished competitor; winning several regional championships before going on to represent Slovakia at international tournaments. In 2004, he made his MMA debut and by 2006 had compiled a record of 10-1 (with all victories won by submission). This impressive record earned him a call up to the UFC where he made his organizational debut in March 2007 against David Bielkheden at UFC 70: Nations Collide. Martin would go on to win via unanimous decision – beginning what has been an incredibly successful run with the promotion that continues to this day.
Since joining the UFC, Buday has gone 11-7 with notable wins over fighters such as Jake Shields, Chris Weidman, Dan Miller and Alessio Sakara amongst others. His most recent victory came by way of TKO against former light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson at UFC 186: Johnson vs Cormier in 2015, bringing his overall record to 21-8 (with 8 out of those wins coming by knockout).
Despite being primarily known for submissions whilst competing outside of the UFC – it’s actually striking which has been Martin’s strongest asset inside the octagon; demonstrated by 12 out of 21 wins coming via KO/TKO – a testament both to his power and technical prowess as a striker. In addition to this Buday also possesses exceptional wrestling technique which allows him great control throughout fights; enabling him both offensively and defensively within scrambles or positional transitions during contests.
Mentally speaking however it hasn’t always been plain sailing for Martin who has endured long periods without success since making history almost eight years ago when becoming one of only two Slovaks ever to fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship alongside Rousimar Palhares . Though since then we have seen times where he appears unmotivated or disinterested – something which can be attributed largely due from lackadaisical training methods or other issues external from martial arts competition such as relationship problems or business matters etc… Nonetheless despite these struggles it’s undeniable that ‘Buday’ remains one if not thee best mixed martial artist Slovakia ever produced – boasting an incredible resume including multiple titles across various promotions prior joining Zuffa LLC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) back in 2007 …
