Choi got the best of Caceres in the first round when he caught the veteran and knocked him to the canvas. However, during a flurry of strikes Choi ended up hitting Caceres with an illegal knee that cost him a point. “Bruce Leeroy” was able to shake it off and continue and good thing he did. In Round 2, Caceres was able to take Choi’s back along the cage and quickly locked in his hooks. From there, Caceres applied the rear-naked choke and forced Choi to the canvas for the tap.
