Doo Ho Choi meets Cub Swanson at UFC 206

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Doo Ho Choi got the fight he was hoping for.

Weeks after knocking out Thiago Tavares in Las Vegas in July, "The Korean Superboy" called out Cub Swanson to a featherweight bout, and the UFC announced on Thursday that the match-up is official for Toronto’s UFC 206 on Dec. 10.

Undefeated for over six years, Choi (14-1) impressed with three first-round TKO finishes under the UFC banner, including a 93-second victory over Sam Sicilia and a 18-second knockout over Juan Manuel Puig.

Swanson (23-7) enters the bout coming off back-to-back decision victories over Hacran Dias and Tatsuya Kawajiri earlier this year, improving to 8-3 inside the Octagon.

UFC 206 is set to take place at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, and features a rematch between Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson for the UFC light heavyweight championship in the main event.
