The featherweights will face off at UFC 206 on Saturday, which will go down in Toronto, Ontario. Any long time fan is more than familiar with Swanson, as the dangerous vet’s long been one of the best 145’ers in the game.
Choi, however, is relatively new to the UFC. But since the South Korean fighter joined the promotion in 2014, he’s put away Juan Manuel Puig, Sam Sicilia and Thiago Tavares in the opening round. As a a result, the 25 year-old has worked his way into the #11 ranking, and is regarded as one of the most promising featherweights in the promotion.
Recently the UFC posted a “The Korean Superboy” promo, which you can catch below.
