UFC 206: Cub Swanson vs. Doo-Ho Choi Added to Toronto Card
UFC 206 has added a great featherweight scrap, as 30-fight veteran Cub Swanson and Korean prospect Doo-Ho Choi are set to square off in Toronto.
A critical bout for the featherweight division has been added to UFC 206 as Cub Swanson (23-7) will take on Doo-Ho Choi (15-1) inside the Octagon. This battle of two highly technical strikers will take place at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on December 10.
