LAS VEGAS — Doo Ho Choi might just be the most promising prospect in the featherweight division right now.
The Korean fighter nicknamed “Superboy” landed his third straight first round knockout with a devastating finish over veteran competitor Thiago Tavares at “The Ultimate Fighter” Finale on Friday night in Las Vegas.
Choi has quickly become one of the most talked about and exciting fighters in the division with his lightning quick finishes and his latest win was no exception.
Choi stalked Tavares across the cage and waited for the perfect opening to uncork a punch and when he did, the Korean knockout artist uncorked a picture perfect right hand that came straight down the pipe and blasted his opponent straight in the mush.
Tavares crashed to the canvas and Choi only needed one more shot before the referee saw enough to stop the fight before things got any worse.
The stoppage came at 2:41 in the first round.
Choi is now 3-0 in the UFC and he looks a fighter to watch for the rest of 2016 as he continues his ascension up the featherweight rankings.
