UFC featherweight Doo Ho Choi (14-1 MMA) is quickly making a name for himself in the UFC’s stacked featherweight division.
The “Korean Superboy” has gone 3-0 inside the octagon scoring first-round knockouts in all three of those victories.
Choi’s most recent effort came at last month’s TUF 23 Finale event where he knocked out veteran Thiago Tavares midway into the opening round.
The “Korean Superboy” took to South Korean sports network SPOTV (via Facebook) to request a fight with Cub Swanson (as transcribed by MMAJunkie):
“I have been watching you since even before I made my UFC debut. Since my UFC debut, I have won all three fights in style. I think it will be a good fight between the two of us. We both always try to knock out our opponents. I like those types of fighters. Even though my ranking isn’t high now, like you mentioned before, it’s not important whether you fight rookies or top-ranked fighters. If you could tell the UFC that you also want to fight me, that would be great. I would appreciate it. I want to fight you. I will look forward to seeing you in the octagon.”
Cub Swanson (23-7 MMA) is coming off a decision victory over Tatsuya Kawajiri at the UFC Salt Lake City event.
