L’udovit Klein mixes together punches and kicks right up there with some of the best strikers in the UFC. Early in Klein’s pro MMA career he scored a lot of his submission finishes. Including three of his eight submission finishes by guillotine choke, which sometimes forces a lot of his opponents to often think twice before looking for a takedown.

L’udovit’s ‘not so secret’ secret weapon is his quick left high kick. ‘Mr. Highlight’ usually looks to get his opponents to respect his hands (especially the straight left) before feinting to draw out the defense and firing off a head kick.

L’udovit faced some solid competition outside of the UFC and still had an impressive seven fight win streak including two head kick finishes in a row right before getting the call up to the big leagues.

Klein has 4 of his 8 TKO/KO wins by way of head kick (including finishes with headkick and punches).
