Slovakia experienced its second fighter in the UFC in October. Martin Buday won the contract after Ľudovít Klein. The heavyweight of Nitra is waiting for the premiere date.
According to information mmashorties.cz he got an offer to match Chris Barnett, but he had to turn it down. Buday’s return to training after the last match was hampered by an injury. “Apart from the contract with the UFC, I brought a broken nose,” he told ŠPORT.sk after a successful contract fight in Dana White’s Contender Series. Buday was due to join Barnett in January, which, according to the source, was too early.
So far, we have lost an interesting confrontation. “Huggy the Bear”, as Barnett’s nickname sounds like, was one of the UFC’s sensations last year. At the time of his debut, he was caught by veteran Ben Rothwell, but in the second game he performed a spectacular spinning wheel kick, ended Gian Villante’s career and took home $ 50,000 for the performance of the evening.
Barnett has a balance of 22-7, he joined the UFC shortly before his 35th birthday. He immediately gained fans with a unique fighting style and charisma. Although it is only 175 centimeters, it throws it to the limit of heavy weight (120 kg)!
Nevertheless, it is perhaps the most agile heavyweight in the UFC. Among others, he earned the nickname “dancing kung fu panda”. His repertoire includes twists and saints and various dance creations. Finally, see for yourself:
