Chile’s Bahamondes (13-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) will look to keep the momentum of two straight wins going as he enters his second bout of 2022. The 24-year-old Dana White’s Contender Series veteran came up short in a hard-fought split decision loss in his debut against John Makdessi. He then rebounded with a spectacular highlight-reel wheel kick knockout of Roosevelt Roberts four months later at UFC on ESPN 29. Bahamondes then slapped on a guillotine choke in the third round to submit Zhu Rong in February.
Slovakia’s Klein (18-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC) will look to stay about .500 in the fifth fight of his young UFC career. The 27-year-old won his debut in 2020 with a devastating first-round knockout of Shane Young, but then dropped his next pair of outings. However, he got back on the winning track in March with a split decision win over Devonte Smith at UFC 272.
