Coming off one of the greatest fights of the year in 2016, Dooho Choi is set to take on Andre Fili at UFC 214, the promotion announced.
UFC 214 is scheduled for July 29 at Anaheim’s Honda Center in California.
Choi (14-2) is one of the rising stars in the featherweight division, but suffered his first setback inside the Octagon in a three-round war with Cub Swanson last December via unanimous decision.
Prior to the defeat, “The Korean Superboy” was 3-0 in the UFC with first-round knockouts over Juan Manuel Puig, Sam Sicilia and Thiago Tavares.
Fili (16-4) last fought in October 2016, bouncing back from a tough loss to Yair Rodriguez with a decision victory over Hacran Dias. The Team Alpha Male talent has bounced between wins and losses since signing with the UFC in 2013.
