The UFC ‘Korean Night’ is coming. Seven Korean fighters, including Doo-Ho Choi (32, featherweight), will participate in UFC Fight Night, which will be held on the 5th at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Choi Doo-ho and Jung Da-un 메이저사이트 (30, light heavyweight) fight on the main card, while Kim Ji-yeon (34, female flyweight) and Park Jun-yong (32, middleweight) fight on the under card.
This is the comeback match of Choi Doo-ho, the ‘Korean Super Boy’ who has been waiting for it. Choi Doo-ho, who became the first Korean to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame (Beat Swanson in the 2016 Cup), will rise to the Octagon after a hiatus of 3 years and 2 months. For this tournament, he trained with ‘Korean Zombie’ Chan-sung Jeong and finished his final training in the US.
The opponent is Kyle Nelson (32, Canada). In mixed martial arts (MMA), Choi Doo-ho has 14 wins and 4 losses, and Nelson has 13 wins and 5 losses. Choi Doo-ho has recently lost 3 games in a row, and Nelson has lost 2 games in a row, so both are in dire need of victory.
In the co-main event, Jeong Da-un clashes with Devin Clark (33, USA). Daun Jeong (15 wins, 1 draw, 3 losses), who was aiming to enter the UFC light heavyweight rankings for the first time in Asia, suffered the first KO loss in his life against Dustin Jacobi in July of last year.
The opponent, Clark, is the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NJCAA) amateur wrestling champion with a record of 13 wins and 7 losses in MMA.
In the under card, Park Jun-yong (15 wins, 5 losses) faces Dennis Tulyulin (35, Russia, 10 wins, 6 losses, 1 null), and “Fire Fist” Kim Ji-yeon (9 wins, 2 draws, 6 losses) is Mandi Böhm. (34, Germany, 7 wins, 2 losses, 1 invalid).

Former Road FC featherweight champion Lee Jung-young will face Lee Ji (27, China) in the featherweight final. Park Hyun-sung and Choi Seung-guk meet in the flyweight final in the ‘Korean Derby’. The winner of each weight class will sign a formal contract with the UFC.
The main event of the tournament will be decorated with heavyweight No. 7 Derek Lewis (38, USA) and No. 12 Sergei Spivak (29, Moldova).
