Choi underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a broken arm suffered at UFC Busan on Dec. 21, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Choi lost his fight against Charles Jourdain via TKO (punches) at UFC Busan, but he evidently suffered a broken arm that likely hindered his striking ability and led to his third consecutive loss. The 28-year-old will likely require some extra time to recover, but he could receive another opportunity with the promotion given the promise that he's shown in the past.

Choi lost to Charles Jourdain via TKO (punches) at 4:32 of Round 2 at UFC on ESPN+ 23 on Saturday in Busan, South Korea.
ANALYSIS
Choi entered this fight a big betting favorite and certainly looked the part when he had Jourdain hurt with a left counter in the first round, but he let Jourdain survive until the second round and lost momentum from there. Jourdain connected with a crisp left hand of his own that sent Choi to the canvas and ultimately led to the fight-ending sequence. It's a tough break for the 28-year-old, who has shown flashes of striking excellence at times, but has now lost three consecutive fights. This was was especially tough to swallow as a big betting favorite in his home country. Choi should be back, but it's fair to wonder if his long-term ceiling is capped following back-to-back TKO losses. On the bright side, the back-and-forth affair earned both combatants a $50,000 Fight of the Night bonus.
