Doo Ho Choi Responds To Cub Swanson’s Call Out

Cub Swanson picked up an impressive win this past weekend at UFC Tampa against Kron Gracie. Swanson was on a four-fight skid, and was understandably relieved after his victory. After the fight, Cub spoke with the media, and was asked about his interest in fighting “The Korean Superboy” Doo Ho Choi once again. And it now looks like something could happen at UFC Busan.

“I’m definitely (interested in a rematch). I feel like me and him owe the fans that, to do it again”, Swanson said (transcript via “I would like to see him get a win, he hasn’t really been that active. But for us to do that again, I think people would love that. I’m down.”

Their fight was named the Fight of the Year in 2016, and following Cub’s comments, Doo Ho Choi took to social media, saying he would be willing to fight Swanson.

“Swanson’s recent fight was amazing and he is a fighter that I have always respected”, Doo Ho Choi posted on his IG. “I came across his recent interview that he believes that we need to have a rematch in which we owe to the fans. I also strongly feel the same but unfortunately I haven’t finished my military duties where it restricts me from flying overseas. Also I understand that he was just fought in UFC Fight Night 161 and that he would need to rest and recover but if him and the UFC can organize a fight in Busan, I guarantee that it will be the craziest fight of 2019!”

UFC Busan goes down in December, and after his war with Kron, it will be interesting to see if Cub Swanson decides to return to the cage in just two months.
