MMA Junkie first reported the bout.
Zalal (10-2-0) is undefeated thus far under the UFC banner, having earned wins over Austin Lingo, Jordan Griffin and Peter Barrett. Zalal has not suffered a defeat in over a year with that last loss coming to Matt Jones via split decision at LFA 65 in May of 2019. Zalal has picked up half of his professional MMA wins by submission, while all of the fighter’s losses came by decision.

Choi is a former Top FC Featherweight Champion, defeating Min Gu Lee by fourth-round knockout to claim the gold.
