Alex Caceres vs Choi Seung-woo: Prediction and Analysis

Caceres has a decent professional fighting record of 18-12 under his name. Ever since his UFC debut, the 33-year-old fighter has had a lot of ups and down on his resume. However, he improved his performances gradually and is currently on the longest win streak of his UFC career.

On the other hand, ‘Sting’ faced a two-fight skid after his UFC debut but soon made it into the win column. He currently holds a professional record of 10-3 under his name. He has a finish in six of his ten fights and is coming off a first-round KO win over Julian Erosa back in June.

Talking about the fight, Choi will have a one-inch height and reach advantage over Caceres. It is a contest between good strikers. However, ‘Bruce Leeroy’ is more experienced than the Korean fighter.

Caceres lands an average of 4.10 strikes per minute and has a 60% striking defense, which is a concerning number for Choi. Even though the latter lands more vicious strikes, Caceres is adept at taking the fight to the distance.

Considering his submission wins, he might also dominate the Korean on the ground. It is going to be a close fight. However, the odds might fall in the favour of the American featherweight. If Choi is unable to find an early finish.
