Doo Ho Choi recently underwent surgery to repair a broken forearm suffered in a loss to Charles Jourdain at UFC Fight Night 165 in Busan, South Korea.
The “Korean Superboy” posted a photo of an x-ray of the injury and a photo after surgery where it appears he had a plate and some screws inserted. It is unclear how long Choi will be sidelined after the procedure.
“Thank you for your concern,” Choi wrote in the caption. “I want to fight quickly.”
Choi engaged in an entertaining battle with Jourdain on Dec. 21, but ultimately lost via second-round TKO in a contest that earned “Fight of the Night” honors. The 28-year-old South Korean began his UFC career with three straight first-round KO/TKO triumphs but has since fallen to Cub Swanson, Jeremy Stephens and Jourdain in his last three appearances.
Choi might be out for an extended period regardless, as he is expected to fulfill his mandatory two-year military service in South Korea soon.
