Julian Erosa (25-8) vs Seung Woo Choi (9-3)

Featherweight (145)

Julian Erosa

After a fairytale return to the UFC, Julian Erosa has started to build serious hype behind himself. A true pressure fighter with searing front-foot aggression and stellar cardio to back it up, Erosa’s tireless volume breaks opponents through attrition. Erosa’s bouncing advances on the feet leave his chin open to hard counters, but his ugly yet effective wrestling is often enough to offer another outlet.

Seung Woo Choi

There isn’t a lot of love for Choi on PI. Anyone who dares defeat Youssef Zalal is painting a red target on their back. Regardless, after a rough start to his UFC career, match-makers have reeled back the quality of competition to allow the South Korean to develop. Carrying huge power in both hands, Choi is a devastating counter-puncher but so far has been unable to coax opponents into initiating exchanges. Pressing with footwork, Choi suffocates an opponent’s space to force them to throw first but fails to draw out their shots with feints. Moreover, Choi has made huge strides in his TDD, building upon scrambles and reducing the time spent on his back.

Predicted Result: Erosa Decision

After a fairytale return to the UFC, Julian Erosa has started to build serious hype behind himself. A true pressure fighter with searing front-foot aggression and stellar cardio to back it up, Erosa’s tireless volume breaks opponents through attrition. Erosa’s bouncing advances on the feet, with a lack of head movement to follow, leaves his chin wide open for the destructive counter-punching of Choi, however. Heavy-handed, Choi excels when opponent’s walk into his powerful counters. Although a good scrambler, Erosa’s ugly yet effective wrestling will wear on Choi throughout the affair and prove the difference.
