By FCF Staff
The upcoming UFC Vegas 33 card has taken a hit, as Doo Ho Choi has announced he’s withdrawing from the July 31 card.
The South Korean featherweight was scheduled to fight Danny Chavez at the event. But, recently Choi reported via social media he’s been forced out of the bout due to injury.
First of all, I’m so sorry for the fans who are waiting for my fight because I couldn’t have a fight due to injury. I’m in a fight business. That means an unexpected accident can happen at any time and I also think a fighter should take the fight even if he has a some injury because that is way it is.
I injured my shoulder in the last sparring session on Friday night. It was very light and easy rolling but something bad unlucky thing happened.
It is not a huge injury, but definitely it isn’t something that can handle the fight. If I had more time for recover, I would push forward and take the fight, but our camp inevitable decided that two weeks were just too shorts to recover.
I’m so sad that I prepared for this fight very hard and I apologize Danny because he must have prepared so hard for this battle as well.
I’ll be back in good condition soon, I really want to fight Danny when I get back show my best performance for the fans. Wait till I come back it will not be long.
The 30-year-old Choi (14-4) has dropped three straight fights, after winning 12 bouts in a row.
