Seung Woo Choi faces Youssef Zalal at UFC Fight Night 180
Seung Woo Choi will be back in action on October 10th. The Korean featherweight has been booked to face Youssef Zalal at UFC Fight Night 180.
There is no location confirmed for this event although it is likely to take place at the UFC’s Apex Centre in Las Vegas. Choi (8-3) scored his first win inside the octagon at UFC Busan last December.
That victory snapped a two fight losing streak for the 27 year old who was the Top FC 145lbs champion before signing with the UFC. Before the win over Suman Mokhtarian he had registered losses against both Gavin Tucker and Movsar Evloev.
Zalal (10-2) has won three fights out of three for the UFC this year. All three victories came courtesy of a judges’ decision but he has yet to crack the top 15 in the 145lbs division.
The card will be headlined by a bantamweight bout between #1 ranked Marlon Moraes and #4 ranked Cory Sandhagen.
