Even earlier than expected, Doo Ho Choi will make its return to the Octagon.
It seems, the UFC has been without the performance of Korean lightweight fighter, Doo Ho Choi, only during the past 2020. Namely, although it was expected that he could be absent for a longer period due to his military service, it seems that the popular fighter managed to arrange his return to the Octagon in the coming months.
It is not known at this time whether this means that he will continue to serve in the army, but with permission to train and perform outside his homeland, or has been completely relieved of duty, but information from South Korea says he has solved the problems and should fight again this year.
The 29-year-old Choi (14-4, 3-3 UFC) arrived at the promotion with a reputation as a big knockout artist, which he confirmed to be in the first three fights, when he celebrated in all three, not to mention that he spent a total less than five minutes in Octagon. This was followed by the war against Cuba Swanson, declared the best fight of 2016, and it ranks among the most exciting fights in UFC history. Unfortunately for him, he suffered the next defeats from Jeremy Stephens and Charles Jourdain, but each time he delighted with his fighting style and fans were disappointed when the "call of the homeland" followed. They were afraid that this could mean an absence of up to three years, which Chan Chan Jung did the same, but apparently the "Korean Superboy" managed to solve something to his own satisfaction, but also to the satisfaction of all who enjoy his fights.
The information says that he should do his next fight in July, which would be 19 months from the last performance. However, this is not as scary as originally expected.
