Dylan “the Mindless Hulk” Budka (5-1) wants LFA title shot
Video interview with Dylan Budka above
Dylan “the Mindless Hulk” Budka has a lot of momentum right now. After handing Wes Schultz his first career loss at LFA 150 last week, Budka has now won five in a row and has to be feeling pretty good about 2023. The 23-year-old professional MMA middleweight has undeniably dedicated himself to working on every part of his craft.
How he got here…
Dylan wrestled his whole life including some college. As a senior in high school, he was an All-American at heavyweight. When he decided to jump into the fire, he certainly had no fears. In 2021, Budka had an amazing nine amateur fights (7-2). “The Mindless Hulk” tells me that he also had a bunch of boxing bouts as well. He credits his team for helping him stay healthy and coaching him up to be where he is today.
Let’s get paid!
Budka went pro in January of 2022 and suffered a loss to David Gladfelter. Since that setback, he has won 5 consecutive contests and is now in position for a big fight at one of the premier regional promotions in the U.S. He has let it be known what he wants. He tells MyMMANews…
“Looks like the last fight on this contract will be in April. I wanted to get something sooner, but we made the best with what we had to work with. I really want to get a title fight for LFA. They are trying to make it happen, but that all depends on if the guy with the belt wants to take a chance on giving me a chance. I have full respect for the current champ because he’s a dog, but I don’t think I’m the right matchup for him.”
Please check out our interview on the link above. Budka has a great personality and could be a fight or two from an even bigger opportunity. I look forward to seeing the Mindless Hulk again!
