Ludovit Klein proud to be first fighter from Slovakia in UFC



LONDON – Ludovit Klein is happy to put Slovakia on the UFC map.

Klein (19-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC) notched his third octagon win this past Saturday when he defeated Mason Jones (11-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 208, which took place at The O2 in London.

Klein, 27, is the first and only Slovakian fighter to ever compete in the octagon, something he takes a lot of pride in.

“It was pleasure for me, because my country is not very big, but I am happy to be here, the first Slovak UFC fighter,” Klein told MMA Junkie and other reporters at a post-fight news conference.

Klein put on a good showing against a tough Jones, even landing a flying kick. He wasn’t able to finish his experienced opponent but knew it wouldn’t be easy.

“I was waiting for a very tough fight tonight because my opponent is strong,” Klein said. “Very tough guy, but I knew I was ready for this fight, for three rounds, for three hard rounds, and I know that I win this fight.”

He continued, “I knew that he’s a very tough guy. He fought at welterweight at Cage Warriors, he was champion in two divisions. He’s tough, but I was prepared for this.”
