Ludovit Klein first ever Slovakian UFC fighter is 1-0 with the UFC after defeating Shane Young in the first round with his high level striking. Even though he was disliked by Israel Adesanya because Ludovit Klein missed weight while his teammate Shane Young made weight.
“Thirty per cent is not enough,” Adesanya complained to UFC boss Dana White inside the cage post fight. “F*** that. Some of these guys are gangsters and they are making money outside the UFC. Thirty per cent ain’t s*** to them. So don’t give them that. Make it 90 per cent and I guarantee you they will try to make the weight and not just bitch out.”https://www.scmp.com/sport/martial-arts/mixed-martial-arts/article/3103249/ufc-253-israel-adesanya-complains-dana-white
Ludovit Klein is the ultimate professional just missed weight because it was a short notice fight. It will never happen again, Doesn’t want to disappoint his bosses Dana White and Sean Shelby. As the “Humble Conor McGregor” because of his stellar striking, Similar looks and soon to be beloved his people of Slovakia.
Besides the weight cut in his UFC debut it was impressive performance, Dominating Shane Young. Watching his high level striking as he was a Amateur Boxing Champion in Slovakia.
Ludovit Klein before the UFC was one of the top European Featherweight prospects as he had wins in top Europe promotions Oktagon, XFN and ACB. Now after all the years of hard work, Grinding at the gym his dreams are now a reality. Coming from humble beginnings in Slovakia now can inspire the young men and women in Slovakia.
It’s only the beginning as “Mr. Highlight” (Ludovit Klein) will be rising through the UFC Featherweight Division and my opinion can become a UFC Featherweight Champion because of his HIGH level striking.
2020 is the year for Ludovit Klein as a win against Ludovit Klein, Fight options like Nate Landwehr, Herbert Burns, Julio Arce.
Klein with a win against either of those three fighters he can fight top 20-top 25 fighters like Zubaira Tukhogov, Lerone Murphy or against of the best strikers in the UFC Edson Barboza to start off 2021. Continuing to rise through the UFC Featherweight rankings as he becomes a superstar in Slovakia because of his impressive wins. Highlight reel knockouts.
2021 love to see Ludovit Klein least fight twice against top 15 Featherweights like Dan Ige which will be a great fight but Klein has the striking advantage in that one, Striking battle against Calvin Kattar or a fight against Shane Burgos. By the end of 2021 we can see Ludovit Klein finish the year as a top ten maybe top eight UFC Featherweight, Depends on how everything goes with rankings.
2022 is year where Klein is able to be a UFC Title Contender fighting Murderer’s row of the Featherweight division like the Korean Zombie, Brian Ortega, Zabit Magomedsharipov, Yair Rodriguez, Sodiq Yusuff when he rises through the featherweight rankings. Hope he advances on his grappling because fighting Ortega, Zabit or Volkanovski if he loses to Max Holloway in a trilogy will challenges.
However Klein is one super talented Featherweight with some of the best striking in the UFC roster, Works on his grappling and his other weaknesses he has the POTENTIAL to become a UFC Featherweight Champion by 2022 because he’s an exciting fighter to watch. Title shot by the end of 2022 is the GOAL for 2022 for Klein!!
Keep an eye on Ludovit Klein for the next several years as he’s the humble version of Conor McGregor.
