An intriguing featherweight battle is set for UFC 206, as Cub Swanson will lock horns with Doo Ho Choi on Dec. 10 in Toronto.
Promotion officials announced the pairing on Thursday. UFC 206 takes place at the Air Canada Centre and features a light heavyweight title rematch pitting Daniel Cormier against Anthony Johnson. The evening’s main card airs on pay-per-view.
Swanson has been victorious in his first two outings of 2016, taking unanimous decisions over Hacaran Dias and Tatsuya Kawajiri. The World Extreme Cagefighting veteran is 8-3 during his promotional tenure and also owns wins over the likes of Jeremy Stephens, Dustin Poirier, Charles Oliveira and Ross Pearson.
Choi has emerged as one of the division’s most exciting prospects since his Octagon debut in November 2014. Thus far, the 25-year-old South Korean has garnered first-round KO/TKO victories over Thiago Tavares, Sam Sicilia and Juan Manuel Puig in UFC competition. Choi is 14-1 as a professional overall.
