Alex Caceres ‘not necessarily impressed’ with Seungwoo Choi ahead of UFC Fight Night 196

Alex Caceres didn’t understand much about Seungwoo Choi when the match was provided to him for Saturday’s UFC Battle Night 196 occasion.

That was great with Caceres (18-12 MIXED MARTIAL ARTS, 13-10 UFC), since anybody who has actually followed his profession understands the long time octagon veteran isn’t particular when it pertains to challengers. Caceres doesn’t follow mixed martial arts extremely carefully, nor does he delight in the world of sports. He’s everything about the martial arts journey and developing as a human and fighter.

When the agreement was signed and the preparation started for the featherweight match at the UFC Pinnacle in Las Vegas, however, Caceres does his research. He doesn’t believe Choi (10-3 MIXED MARTIAL ARTS, 3-2 UFC) is a bad fighter by any methods, however for somebody who has actually shared the cage with the similarity Yair Rodriguez, Sergio Pettis, Urijah Faber, and more – there’s absolutely nothing that has Caceres extremely worried.

“He’s a great striker,” Caceres informed press reporters, consisting of mixed martial arts Addict, at Wednesday’s UFC Battle Night 196 media day. “We’ve seen fights where it seems like he doesn’t like to grapple, which is cool. I don’t necessarily like to grapple if I don’t have to either. It could be a good stand up fight. I do feel like my grappling is better if we go there. Not necessarily impressed with anything. Not to say he’s nothing. I’ve been in this thing – this is my 10th year in the UFC and I’ve fought some of the highest level guys from all ranges. I’ve seen it all.”
