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.
