Ludovit Klein Biography, EarlyLife

Later, the boxing club he was involved in broke up and for some time he did not know which direction to take.

As he wanted to continue his hobby, he signed up for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training. He trained for a long time in the Thomas Bilishich Martial Arts Academy. He later added Thai boxing to his martial arts training, which is how he first heard about the amateur MMA league. Subsequently, he started to devote himself to it.

 

In the beginning, he earned his living as a bouncer at discos, where he was often picked on because of his shorter stature.
