Seung Woo Choi faces Collin Anglin at UFC Vegas 18
Seung Woo Choi will be back in action next month. The Korean featherweight has been booked to face Collin Anglin at UFC Vegas 18 on February 6th.
The event will take place at the Apex Centre in Las Vegas. Choi’s original opponent Steven Peterson was forced to pull out with an injury and Anglin replaces him.
Choi (8-3) celebrated his first ever win inside the octagon at UFC Busan. He beat Suman Mokhtarian by decision but did not fight at all in 2020 after seeing a couple of fights fall through.
Anglin (8-1) makes his UFC debut on the back of a six fight winning streak. He caught the eye with a win at Dana White’s Contender Series last year.
The event will be headlined by a heavyweight fight between Alistair Overeem (47-18-0-1) and Alexander Volkov (32-8). The 2019 K-1 World Grand Prix winner is riding a two fight winning streak and looking to secure a title shot.
Also on the card will be former Rizin bantamweight champion Manel Kape (15-4) who makes his UFC debut. He faces Alexandre Pantoja (22-5) in a flyweight fight.
