UFC London: L’udovit Klein Proud To Be First UFC Fighter From Slovakia

London, UK – UFC lightweight L’udovit Klein scored the upset against Mason Jones when he earned a decision victory at UFC London on Saturday night.

“I had tough fight tonight because my opponent is strong, very tough guy. I know that I ready for this fight, for three round, for three hard round and I know that I win this fight,” Klein told Cageside Press among other media at his post-fight scrum.

“I know that he’s very tough guy. He fighting in welterweight in Cage Warriors. He was champion in two divisions, and I he’s tough but I (was) prepared for this.”

With a good win under his belt Klein is still planning to rest a few days before returning to training and planning his next move.

“I go home, I rest few days, and I go right to the gym and I will be ready for next challenge. I hope soon because I am healthy, I don’t have injuries, and I am hungry,” Klein said.

Klein is the first fighter from Slovakia to fight in the UFC which is something he holds very dear.

“It was pleasure for me because my country is not very big, but I am happy to be here. As the first Slovak UFC fighter,” said Klein.

With the lightweight division waiting for a champion to be named when former 155-pound king Charles Oliveira faces Islam Makhachev at UFC 280, many have offered their predictions, including Klein.

“My prediction is Islam Makhachev will be winner from this fight, but will be hard fight. I think Islam Makhachev wins this fight,” he said.
