Seung Woo Choi Secures Thunderous KO Over Julian Erosa Early At UFC Vegas 29

The UFC returns to Las Vegas, Nevada once again tonight, June 19, 2021, for UFC on ESPN 25.

Headlining the event comes a bout in the featherweight division between top ranked contenders ‘The Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jung (No. 4) and Dan ’50K’ Ige (No. 8).

Co-headlining the card is a bout of heavyweight grapplers, as Alexey Oleinik faces Sergey Spivak, who’s coming into the fight on a two-fight win streak, while Oleinik himself is on a two-fight losing skid.

The first feature bout of the night came in the featherweight division between streaking talents Julian Erosa and Seung Woo Choi.

Erosa won his UFC debut via split decision back in 2015, before being KO’d in his next fight. He was then released, and when he came back in 2018 and 2019, he went 0-3, being KO’d in two of those outings as well.

Erosa won his next fight on the regional circuit, before returning to fill in on short notice to face undefeated talent Sean Woodson. He submitted Woodson in round three after a very entertaining back-and-fourth war, and he was finally back in the winners circle inside the octagon.

This was followed up by him knocking former M-1 Challenge champion Nate Landwehr out with a flying knee less than a minute into round one of his next bout.

Choi came to the UFC after a successful Muay Thai career with a mixed martial arts record of 7-1, being a two-time Top FC featherweight champion in MMA as well prior to joining.

He’d lose his first two octagon bouts, before winning his last two quite dominantly via unanimous decision.

Both of these men had a bit of a rough go early on, but have been finding their groove lately, which makes this encounter very interesting.

Official Result: Seung Woo Choi def. Julian Erosa via KO (punch) at 1:37 of round one

Round 1

Choi comes out throwing heavy right out of the gate, and lands two thunderous overhand rights within the first 30 seconds of the fight. He’s mixing it up well between his punches and kicks, and all of his strikes are effecting Erosa.

Choi then lands a beautiful left hook that drops Erosa, and pretty much has him KO’d right then and there. A few more punches were landed before the referee pulled Choi off.
