UFC Fight Night 238 video: Ludovit Klein lives up to ‘Mr. Highlight’ nickname with rare TKO finish

LAS VEGAS – Ludovit Klein showed once again why his nickname is “Mr. Highlight” with a dominant performance against A.J. Cunningham at UFC Fight Night 238.

Cunningham (11-4 MMA, 0-1 UF)C stepped into the lightweight bout at the UFC Apex on just four days’ notice, and he was a massive betting underdog. The result reflected those variables, with Klein (21-4-1 MMA, 5-2-1 UFC) turning in a destructive striking performance en route to a TKO at 4:36 mark of Round 1.

Klein landed all sorts of punches and kicks throughout the brief bout, but the end came when he landed a front kick to the body that folded Cunningham. It was just the third finish of its kind in UFC history, joining Alexander Volkov and Dan Hooker.

Now undefeated in his past five fights dating back to March 2022, the 29-year-old Klein said he’s looking upward in the lightweight division.

“I want to be champion some day,” Klein said in his post-fight interview with Daniel Cormier.
