First ever Slovakian UFC fighter, Ludovit Klein is fighting former M1- Featherweight Champion Nate Landwehr.
Klein fought in the best promotions in the world from ACA, Oktagon MMA and Cage Warriors defeating talented fighters from Europe. All of them with winning records.
Trains with Ivan Buchinger, Martin Buday at Spartakus Fight Gym.
Fighting on the MAIN CARD of Ladd vs Dumont. Ludovit Klein has the opportunity to steal the show tonight not having in this lackluster card and make a bigger name for himself against a formidable opponent.
“When I’m imagining this fight in my mind, I can see different scenarios; I just don’t know yet which one will be the winning one,” he said. “You will see it October 16th.”
Stole the show in his UFC debut by KO against Shane Young, City Kickboxing Product.
Deserved to a 50k bonus but Klein missed weight and the UFC doesn’t tolerate missing weight. There was a misunderstanding that leading to it but I’m sure Klein won’t miss weight again.
Second fight was against New Jersey’s own Mike Triziano. Klein training at Sanford MMA with the best fighters in the world from Michael Chandler, Gilbert Burns to name a few.
Judges scored 30-27 Triziano. I have no clue what fight they were watching, Ludovit Klein won the striking exchanges. Triziano didn’t make an impact with the punches. Klein was the superior grappler as he kept succeeding with takedowns.
Klein looked very good in this three round fight as you see flying down to Florida to train at Sanford MMA helped.

Time to face against the wild Nate Landwehr. Doubt this fight will be boring as both fighters will put on a show for the fans but Klein is the more talented fighter with grappling and Slovakian Amateur Boxing Champion.
Defeating Nate Landwehr is another win in the right direction leading to bigger fights in 2021. Right matchups in 2021 can lead to top fifteen ranking.
“I want to move forward and get to the Top 15 as soon as possible,” he said when asked what’s next. “But after the fight, I want to take some quick rest to be with my family because I have been in preparation for this fight a long time.”
Manel Kape one of the biggest signings in UFC lately former Rizin Bantamweight Champion, Superstar in Japan as he was training at AKA Thailand ran by Mike Swick (Ultimate Fighter 1 and former UFC Fighter) .
Kape started off 0-2 with UFC losing to Alexandre Pantoja and Matheus Nicolau.
However Kape FINALLY started to throw and attack. All or nothing in this fight and defeated Ode Osbourne with a first round KO. Looking like the Kape who fought for Rizin.
“I know that I will be a champion I have the characters of the champion you know I’ve been a champion and I’ll be 100% a champion in UFC this is true if everything will okay like tonight I’ll be a champion believe me.” Manel Kape
Confidence inside the Octagon can translate to a winning streak, Becoming a top 15 UFC Flyweight in 2021 or 2022.
” I should be in the top five that’s why the UFC brought me in.” Manel Kape
Dealing with adversity from the losses, Never forget where he came from. Born in Angola but immigrated to Portugal seeking a better life. Living his dream being one of the best flyweights in the world.
First goal was becoming Rizin Bantamweight Champion, Now looks to become UFC Flyweight Champion. He has all the talented in the world, All up here.
Manel Kape expecting a child this Winter that will be a extra boost mentally to become the #1 Flyweight in the world.
“I feel like I’m one of the smartest fighters in the world. I can see things that not everyone can see inside the octagon. I made this plan so perfect and everything went very well. I’m orthodox, but I can fight southpaw. I knew when I changed to orthodox, he would not see me – I would be like a ghost in front of him. I knew I’d change, and he’d move to try to attack me.”
Love to see a quick return before Winter for he can spend time with his wife. Barely any damage against Ode Osbourne. Earn as much money as possible negotiating his next contract.
Former TKO Flyweight Champion Malcom Gordon vs Manel Kape would be a fun matchup for each of them. Former champions before signing with UFC. Similar fighting styles looking for the finish in the early rounds. Definitely would watch this fight.
David Dvořák vs Manel Kape. David Dvorak #11th ranked Flyweight 20-3 record. Dvorak definitely a dangerous fighter. Flying under the radar with a 16 fight winning streak.
Sit and wait for the matchups Pantoja vs Royval, Alex Perez vs Matt Schnell.
Manel Kape end of 2021 without a doubt with the right mindset can be a flyweight title contender, Starting a UFC winning streak that can lead to a a UFC Flyweight Title shot if Kape defeats the right fighters.
Derick Lewis vs Cyril Gane for the UFC Heavyweight Interim Title. One shot for Derick Lewis is night night for Gane. I can’t wait for this fight and card in general. Plenty fighters to watch who MAY have BRIGHT futures in the UFC.
#1 choice is the rising Lightweight, Former Muay Thai Champion Rafael Fiziev. Entering this featuring prelim fight on a three fight winning streak and facing a MMA veteran Bobby Green. Fighting since the Strikeforce days and made a big name for himself during COVID.
GREAT TEST for Fiziev to see what he’s truly made of. Fight in the right direction. PERFECT spot for a young hungry fighter to build his name on a Pay Per View card.
“This guy is very tough. He started to fight a long time ago and he has big experience. I respect all this and I respect him. But I don’t think that he has more experience than me because I have big experience in amateur fights, won them all. I’m on a good road.”
Rafael Fiziev 9-1 record vs Bobby Green 27-11-1. Obvious Bobby Green is the experienced fighter but Rafael Fiziev trains at Tiger Muay Thai with Petr Yan, Valentina Shevchenko, Timofey Nastyukhin (One Championship).
“I don’t think about finishing him; I never think about finishing opponents,” the recipient of performance bonuses in his last two fights said. “I’m ready every time for a hard fight, a long distance, and such a hard fight, not an easy fight. I stay ready for this every time. I never say, ‘Oh, it’s an easy fight, oh, I finish him.’ It’s never easy. It’s always hard work.”
Former Rizin Bantamweight Champion is 0-2 with UFC. One more chance for Kape to impress the UFC or he’s gonna be CUT from the UFC. One of the biggest UFC signings in recent years, Being the Rizin Bantamweight Champion is an accomplishment that easily attracted the UFC to sign him.
Kape has all the talent in the world but he needs to have the same confidence he had fighting for RIZIN as one of there biggest stars. Kape isn’t getting dominated biggest problem with him is striking more, Not being afraid to let it GO.
“I love watching him fight, He’s a savage, He’s a beast he’s gonna be a problem I just hope that that he gets used to the cage.” Muhammad Lawal interview with Mike Swick
“Everybody say that they can stand with me but when they feel my hands they want to shoot some takedowns… I don’t believe that we are the same level. I need to respect his left hand. He has power in his left hand, he has shown already at featherweight. But I’ve been fighting with fighters who have a lot of power in hands and nobody never knocked me down. I’m really focused for this fight and I believe I will knock out him.”
UFC prospect I’m high on fights in the Bantamweight division. Explosive Bantamweight tank built like Chad Mendes. Trains at the Texas Powerhouse Gym Fortis MMA owned by former NBA All-Star Deron Williams and ran by Sayif Saud.
Facing the experienced 21-8 Anderson dos Santos. Hopefully with a win with against dos Santos there’s a winning streak and a rising year for Miles Johns. Rewarded with a bonus tonight definitely deserves the 50k’s.
Johnny Munoz Jr
Former King of the Cage Bantamweight Champion “lost” to Nate Maness in his UFC debut. I disagreed with the decision really believe Munoz Jr won the fight, Shocked by the decision but tonight we can see FIRST UFC win.
He sees plenty of advantages for himself in this fight and is envisioning a big finish to get himself in the win column.
Traveling down to Tijuana, Mexico to train with UFC FLYWEIGHT CHAMPION Brendan Moreno.
“I’ve been going traveling a lot to Tijuana down in Mexico it’s about an hour and a half from from where I’m at so I’ve been training a lot with Brandon Moreno I was actually part of his fight camp which was real cool being able to see him succeed and accomplish.” Johnny Munoz Jr
Jumped on the scene fighting on the Dana White Contender Series, Beating the crap out of his opponent but Dennis Buzukja kept going because of pure well and mental strength.
However I was really impressed with his performance, HIGH LEVEL striking. Besides being a 5-1 fighter, Melsik was a Wu Lin Feng International Welterweight Kickboxing champion in 2014. K1 Welterweight Title Challenger in 2018.
“His speed and his power is unbelievable. He’s a world-class striker,” Tarverdyan said. “I believe right now when he walks in that cage on Tuesday, he’s one of the biggest punchers in the 145 division.”
Melsik Baghdarsaryan trains with Edmen shahbazyan, Alfred Khashakyan.
UFC debut is against Collin Anglin, Contender Series alumnus making his UFC debut as well. One of the best Midwest Featherweight prospects.
Rafa Garcia former Combate Americas Lightweight Champion lost his first UFC fight but had a impressive fight against Tristar Gym prospect Nasrat Hapqarast. Nothing be mad about he did a very good job in his UFC debut. Nasrat is a fighter I really respect.
Rafa Garcia facing off Chris Gruetzemacher 14-4 fighter tough dude was discovered on Ultimate Fighter Season 22. Win over Joe Lauzon.
Hope to see a better Rafa Garcia Saturday night was excited when I seen the UFC sign him.
Xtreme Couture product since 2020 shown his potential in fight against TJ Brown. Didn’t get the win but should’ve. Kai Kamaka definitely has potential to be a Featherweight title contender in the next FEW years, Entering his prime at 26 years old.
Kai Kamaka rewarded fight of the night 50k bonus but fight against Danny Chavez will see performance of the night bonus.
“This sport can be cruel to you, but you have two choices: You can quit or you can move on. I’ve chosen to move on,” Kamaka told KHON2 sports director Rob DeMello. “My feelings about the fight have stayed the same. I still feel that I won, but that’s why I just kept going.”
EVERY MMA fan is excited for TJ Dillashaw vs Cory Sandhagen Main Event fight but top to bottom is a sneaky card.
Maycee Barber vs Miranda Maverick
Maycee Barber hot prospect as she was determined to become the UFC youngest champion, Taking over the throne over Valentina Shevchenko. Torn ACL stopped the momentum of Maycee Barber losing to Roxanne Modaferri than to Alexa Grasso.
“Bring it on,” Barber told MMA Junkie at a media day at the UFC Apex. “It’s been a roller coaster, but it’s been a huge learning lesson, and I’ve had a lot of fun with it. There’s going to be good times and bad times along life, and I’m ready for it all – and ready to learn and grow from it all.”
Switching camps to Team Alpha Male, Owned by Urijah Faber. Looking to change things up.
“It’s been really good, you know, California is amazing. It’s super beautiful, and I got a good tan, but the team overall, you know, is a lot of motivated people. There are people that are trying to be at the top of the UFC, and there are also people who are trying to get into the UFC and in other big promotions. I feel like there are two different levels of hunger, but they’re both hunger.”
I just love how everybody is in the same building as well and they are all on the same page which is what I need at this point in my career. I’ve also been working with Urijah Faber a lot and got some work in with Danny Castillo, Chris Holdsworth, and then all their fighters around my weight there.”
Defeating Miranda Maverick definitely help her confidence boost, Feels good to get that first win back. Barber returning to a winning streak in 2021.
Miranda Maverick former Invicta Flyweight Tournament winner, Two fight UFC winning streak at 24 years old with a 9-2 record. #13 UFC Flyweight right now and defeating the hot prospect Maycee Barber but Miranda Maverick is her own hot prospect.
“My school will be over in the fall, and then I’ll have less to worry about, so I’ll be able to put more of my focus on fighting. And I’m really excited about what I can do [as a fighter] when I have that time to focus more on training, nutrition, all of those kinds of things that lead to success in this business.”
“That’s the only fight I didn’t want because I think we are very young prospects and I think we both have a big future in this sport,” Miranda said. “She (Maycee) is already on a two-fight losing streak, she is gonna be on a three-fight losing streak.”
Maycee Barber vs Miranda Maverick is gonna be a GREAT FIGHT on paper very curious to see how these three rounds breakdown.
Punahele Soriano vs Brendan Allen
Punahele Soriano Xtreme Couture product, Contender Series alumni is on a two fight winning streak with TWO first round KO’s. Soriano 8-0 record at 28 years old. 2021 can be a MAJOR year for him to put his name out there.
“It comes with a lot of pressure, but I love to live up to that and push beyond that,” offered Soriano, who missed all of 2020 after dealing with a hip injury. “I don’t want to just be another Hawaiian with a granite chin that can hit hard — I want to be the Hawaiian that can do that and everything else; the guy that can wrestle, can grapple, can win hard rounds, and can grind it out.
“I know he comes from a good camp — they’ve got tough guys there, good coaches — but I’m just going to go out there and out-fight him. I’m not afraid to get tired. I’m not afraid to get in there and give it my all. I’m not afraid to die out there.
Brendan Allen Former LFA Middleweight Champion, Won a contract on the Dana White Contender Series. Dealt with a tough loss against Sean Strickland but defeated a REALLY GOOD Karl Roberson.
Before the loss Allen was on a three fight winning streak but can start it up again.
“If I can match that feeling again, perform that way again, I feel like it’s my time to make a run,” he added with an eye towards the future. “After this one, I’ll have fought down twice, defended my spot, and hopefully I can get a big name and get someone in the Top 10.
Switched camps to Florida Powerhouse Sanford MMA, Training with the killers of killers from Gilbert Burns, Jason Jackson(Bellator Welterweight) Michael Chandler, Derek Brunson to name a few. Learning from different styles, Coaches Henri Hooft & Greg Jones.
Iron sharpens Iron and Brendan Allen tools have definitely sharpened.
Brendan Allen vs Punahele Soriano is a GREAT Fight to WATCH two Middleweight prospects looking to becoming UFC Middleweight Champions.
I was extremely excited when UFC signed Mateusz Gamrot former KSW Featherweight and KSW Lightweight Champion. One of the best European prospects before signing with UFC.
Gamrot making his third UFC appearance against the UFC veteran Hardest hitting 145 pounder Jeremy Stephens.
“Jeremy has a very big name in the United States and I am very happy about this,” said Gamrot, detailing why he’s excited to share the cage with the battle-tested veteran on Saturday night at the UFC APEX. “He is very experienced, a UFC legend, and it is a pleasure to fight with him because if I win, my name jumps up to the next level.
Training at the POWERHOUSE MMA Gym American Top Team iron sharpens iron and Gamrot will look to be better than ever even during his KSW title run days.
My big goal is of course winning the belt of the lightweight division. I don’t know when, but for sure I will be UFC champion in the future.” For now, however Gamrot will take it step by step. “This Saturday, if I win against Jeremy, big jump, and I would like the next opponent [to be] maybe top 20, top 15, because I think I deserve it.”
Fight of the Night WAR will be happening with Dan Ige vs Korean Zombie. Dan Ige looking to become a top ten Featherweight in 2021. Fighters like Aleksa Camur and Casey O’Neill looking to become top ten fighters in the next following years.

Camur 1-1 with the UFC but looking to a hot start to 2021 with a win against Nick Negumereanu.
“Obviously, I love a quick finish. A quick finish is awesome. A decision, you know, it is what it is. But, a three-round war or a five-round war, whether it’s like the main event or an undercard fight, I’d love that. I’d have fun doing that.”
I train with Stipe as much as I can. He’s a huge help for my career. He hits hard, so I know going into fights that these guys aren’t going to hit as hard as he does. He guides me inside and outside of the octagon – not only Stipe, but the whole team at Strong Style.”
Quick finish can lead to better fights for the prospect out of Strong Style Fight Team. Becoming one of the rising prospects for the UFC Light Heavyweight Division.
Gradually becoming one of my favorite prospects to watch. Before signing with UFC was one of the best Women’s Flyweight prospects in the world. Training at Xtreme Couture with Dan Ige, Coached by one of the best MMA coaches Eddie Barraco.
“I feel like the community of people at Xtreme Couture and 10th Planet is small, but they’re super close to each other,” O’Neill said. “Everybody is willing to help you out and give you time and give you their body to be a partner. Eddie (Barraco) has all the time in the world for me to hold pads and everything, so it’s a very friendly environment, and they make you feel at home straight away. Being an outsider, you don’t always get that, but I felt it straight away here.”
Casey O’Neil can really make a mark in the Flyweight Division as she carves her opponents with technical Muay Thai. Right now one of the most talented flyweights.
“I look at my division and I see myself as one of the top five in the division, and with experience and time I’m going to prove that to everybody else. Obviously I’m super young and I have a lot of time to grow, but I’m definitely one of the most talented people in the flyweight division, in my opinion.

Hakeem has the advantage in the athletic department leading to a win, Knocking out Evolev with a quick combination because of his speed.
“No doubt, once I win this fight, it’s top-10 status,” Dawodu said. “You can’t deny me. I think you’ve gotta put me in the contender (category). You’ve gotta put me in the video game. That’s how I see this playing out.”

However doesn’t mind a quick turn around because of the lack of damage. Interested in fighting Jeremy Stephens May 8th or May 15th according to MMAjunkie journalist John Morgan.

Rematch against Sean Strickland makes sense. Revenging his loss as Brendan Allen had a bad night at the house getting knocked out by Strickland.
“I knew it was a fluke,” Allen told MMA Junkie on Monday. “He got lucky. He hit me with a lucky shot. I was out of position, I was out of position. I wasn’t in a good spot to take the punch – something that I never do. I never dip that hard, and I don’t know why I did it. I made the wrong read and got caught.”
Change of scenery from Roufusport MMA Academy to Sanford MMA down in Florida. Training with Michael Chandler, Gilbert Burns, Jason Jackson, Aung La Nsang to name a few GREAT fighters. “Iron sharpens Iron” and Brendan Allen will have a REALLY GOOD 2021. He’s a talented fighter.

Suggesting a different outcome against Strickland. No disrespect to Sean Strickland but there’s levels to this game.
“That I should have f*ck Sean Strickland up,” Brendan Allen told James Lynch for MMASucka.com. “There were just things that I didn’t do. I made the wrong read in the second and I got caught. I always say before every fight, every interview, no matter what, I feel like that’s the only way these guys can beat me, is to catch me. So, he caught me. Nine out of 10 times that fight doesn’t go that way, but that’s the one time that it mattered and he caught me.”
Brendan Allen former LFA Middleweight Champion, Contender Series alumni was on a three fight winning streak defeating Kevin Holland, Kyle Daukaus and Tom Breese. Defeating tough Middleweights before losing to Sean Strickland.
“I think emotionally it was really tough to have it taken away from me again and I really didn’t know who Sean Strickland was, to be honest. I thought it was going to be a cakewalk,” Allen told UFC.com. “It was tough for me to wrap my head around missing out on the Top 15 opportunity. That was some immaturity there.”
Brendan Allen switched gyms from Roufusport MMA Academy to Sanford MMA training with some of the best fighters in the world… Gilbert Burns, Vicente Luque, One Championship Light Heavyweight Champion and Heavyweight Champion Aung La Nsang, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, Jason Jackson and Logan Storley. To name a few killers.

“It’s good. We’ve got a lot of good guys in the room, as always at Sanford, (and) good coaches. It couldn’t be any better, I’m just taking care of my body and trying to be the best ‘me’ come fight night.”
Training with champions, Future champions, UFC & Bellator fighters will make Brendan Allen rise in 2021.
Making the best of UFC 261 facing Andre Roberson, Winning by knockout, Dominant fashion or a DAWG three round war. It doesn’t matter a win is a win.
“I’m just going to let it come. I’m going to win every transition, every scramble, every exchange, and as long as I do that, I’ll be good to go. I’m going to win the fight, as long as I do those things and they add up, I’ll be just fine, and I’ll win the fight. If the finish comes, it’ll come. I got to the point where I was really looking for that in the last few fights and it didn’t happen.”

“There was a never a question about my skill set I’ve always had my coaches believed in me more than I believe in myself really they just put in my brain so I’ve always had a high skill set training with Robert Whittaker all the time so I know where I am but I just got to prove it on the stage it’s easy to train and be good in the gym but to get in the cage and do it is another thing and I just showed that prove to myself that I can do it.” Jacob Malkoun
Hope Malkoun returns this summer of 2021 fighting tough UFC Middleweights, Getting much experience as possible inside the cage. Improving more and more.
“I just want to get better first,” Malkoun said. “I don’t want to keep jumping in. I’ve got a lot of gaps to fill. There’s no easy fight in the UFC. I can’t just keep jumping and say, ‘Oh, I’m the best’ because I won one fight. I’ve got to keep getting better. So whatever the coaches think (I should do next), we’ll go back, regroup, and we’ll see what happens from there.”
“Losing is part of the sport the only way to get better.”
Hopefully the last loss for a while, Malkoun is a very talented fighter, Definitely his cardio will be a strong skillset that will help him in 2021 and his UFC journey. Developing a strong mindset, Becoming fearless inside the cage will only make him stronger.
However 5-1 record pro record, Winning ADCC Asian Trials in Jiu-Jitsu is crazy. This dude’s a beast just needs to fight more.

Timur Valiev Russian Bantamweight prospect, Successful career with Professional Fighters League and Gorilla Fighting Championship. Valiev second UFC fight was a dominant grappling performance with barely any damage taken.
Looking forward to Valiev’s next fight which could be scheduled in the next month if ready for a quick turn around but the Russian Frankie Edgar is ready for it.
Valiev physically looked great, Gained more muscle lost some love handles. Valiev 17-2 record definitely needs tougher competition as he’s good for it.
Cancelled fight with Julio Arce was the RIGHT fight for Valiev, Possibly reschedule Valiev vs Arce in March…
Fight options such as Darren Elkins, Herbert Burns, Alex Caceres. Top 25 Featherweights. Timur Valiev fighting lesser level opponents won’t show what he’s truly made of. Valiev was one of the best Bantamweights in the world before moving up to the Featherweight division.
Mirsad Bektic vs Timur Valiev would be a sick fight to watch, Bektic is on a losing streak but he always brings his best and we all remember Bektic for putting that whooping on Darren Elkins until Elkins brought out the DAWG in him.
Russian Frankie Edgar Timur Valiev trains with some of the best fighters in the world such as Frankie Edgar, Corey Anderson, Lance Palmer and coached by underrated head coach Nick Catone.
