Doo Ho Choi is set to fight for the first time since December 2019.

UFC officials announced on Monday that Choi will face Danny Chavez in a featherweight matchup at the promotion’s event on July 31 at a location and venue yet to be made official.

“The Korean Superboy” looks to snap a three-fight skid and pick up his first win in over five years. Choi finished his first three octagon appearances in the first round and has since lost a decision to Cub Swanson in a Fight of the Year candidate in 2016, and been stopped in back-to-back fights by Jeremy Stephens and Charles Jourdain.

Chavez makes his third promotional appearance and aims to get back on track after dropping a unanimous decision to Jared Gordon at UFC Vegas 19 in February. “The Colombian Warrior” was victorious in his octagon debut when he defeated T.J. Brown at UFC 252.

In addition, the promotion also announced a bantamweight matchup between Rani Yahya and Kyung Ho Kang to take place on July 31.
