Promotion officials announced the featherweight bout on Wednesday
evening. UFC Fight Night 165 takes place on Dec. 21 at Sajik Arena
in Busan, South Korea, and is headlined by a featherweight showdown
Ortega and Chan Sung
Choi enters the matchup on a two-fight skid. “The Korean Super Boy”
hasn’t competed since suffering a second-round technical knockout
loss to Jeremy
Stephens at UFC Fight Night 124 in January 2018. Choi kicked
off his promotional tenure with KO/TKO finishes of Juan Manuel
Puig, Sam Sicilia
Tavares before losing a memorable decision against Cub Swanson
at UFC 206 in what was the “Fight of the Year” for many in 2016.
The 28-year-old South Korean has finished 12 of his 14 career
triumphs inside the distance.
Jourdain, meanwhile, had a four-bout winning streak snapped in his
Octagon debut, when he dropped a unanimous decision against
Green at UFC Fight Night 152 in May. The 23-year-old Canadian
owns a 9-2 professional mark while competing primarily under the
TKO MMA banner.
