Shows poor fight IQ in loss

Choi lost to Gavin Tucker via submission (rear-naked choke) at 3:17 of Round 3 at UFC 240 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Choi was winning the range striking battle handily but for some reason never chose to disengage with Tucker when he had the chance. This led to him spending even more time on his back, and eventually, the submission loss. Choi clearly knows how to use his height and reach, but can be taken down at an alarming rate and doesn't show a sense of urgency when on the ground with better grapplers. While he may be raw, Choi's physical tools and cardio could make him someone to watch if he can figure some things out. He falls to 7-3 in professional MMA as a result of the loss.
