October 3, 2020
Choi is out of his scheduled matchup against Youssef Zalal on Oct. 10, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Choi dropped his first two fights with the UFC, but picked up a win against Suman Mokhtarian in December and was poised for an opportunity to even out his record at .500. It would have been a tough task against the 3-0 Zalal, but the proposed matchup will no longer come to pass. Instead, Ilia Topuria will take his place after accepting the opportunity to debut on short notice.

August 17, 2020
Choi is in line to take on Youssef Zalal in a featherweight matchup at the UFC's Oct. 10 event, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Choi finally picked up his first victory in the UFC via unanimous decision over Suman Mokhatarian after taking back-to-back losses in his first two appearances with the promotion. He's set to face another prospect in Zalal, who has emerged victorious by unanimous decision in each of his first three UFC fights. Choi sports two-inch advantages in both height and reach, so he will likely attempt to use those to keep the takedown-heavy Zalal at bay.

December 23, 2019
Choi defeated Suman Mokhtarian via unanimous decision (29-26, 29-26, 29-25) at UFC on ESPN+ 23 on Saturday in Busan, South Korea.
ANALYSIS
Choi didn't lose a round in front of the South Korean crowd and even picked up a consensus 10-8 in Round 2, though he was deducted a point in the first frame due to grabbing the cage. He ended up with dominant stats in the striking department, racking up 95 significant strikes to Mokhtarian's 33. It was a much-needed first UFC win for the 27-year-old, who started his run with the company with losses to Movsar Evloev and Gavin Tucker.

Choi will fight Suman Mokhtarian at UFC Busan December 21, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
ANALYSIS
After an undefeated start to his professional career, Choi is now 7-3 after two straight losses to begin his run with the UFC. A potentially favorable matchup for the striker, Mokhtarian displayed poor defense in his recent string of losses which could spell a home-crowd rebound for Choi.
