SeungGuk Choi is a South Korean-born mixed martial artist currently competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He began his career in the sport of MMA in 2008 and has since gone on to become one of the most successful Asian fighters within the UFC. Throughout his career, he has earned numerous accolades including being ranked as high as No. 6 by Fight Matrix’s featherweight rankings.
Prior to joining UFC, SeungGuk competed for many promotions such as Deep, Road FC and Keirin FC. His fight record stands at 10 wins and 3 losses with 8 of those victories coming via submission or technical knockout. It was during this time that he developed a reputation for having a well rounded game which included both striking and grappling aspects.
After building up his name within regional promotions, SeungGuk finally made it into the UFC roster in 2017 when he defeated Japanese fighter Teruto Ishihara at The Ultimate Fighter Finale 25: Johnson vs Gaethje. Since then SeungGuk has gone on to win five out of seven fights which he’s had inside the Octagon so far; these include impressive victories over Taekwondo blackbelt Doo Ho Choi, fellow South Korean Kyung Ho Kang and Brazilian Jiu jitsu black belt Charles Rosa amongst others.
Outside of fighting, SeungGuk enjoys brushing up on foreign languages and playing video games such as Clash Royale with his friends back home in Korea whenever possible; demonstrating that outside of being an elite athlete there is still plenty more going on within Chois life away from training/competing – something rarely seen amongst other competitors across all sports today. In addition to this SeungGuk also frequently visits orphanages around Seoul; helping children who may have been forgotten about by society learn new skills through Mixed Martial Arts classes which are often free to attend due to funding provided by sponsorships/endorsements associated with Choi himself allowing people far less fortunate than himself benefit through these activities too.
With no signs of slowing down anytime soon, it will be exciting to see how both Chio’s professional MMA career & personal endeavours develop further over time moving forward – something we can all look forward too!
