A pair of Korean fighters return to the cage after lengthy layoffs on July 31 in two newly announced matchups.

UFC officials today announced a bantamweight contest between Kung Ho Kang and Rani Yahya, as well as a featherweight matchup of Dooho Choi vs. Danny Chavez – both of which take place at a UFC Fight Night event on July 31, which does not currently have a publicly announced location or venue.

Kang (17-8 MMA, 6-2 UFC) returns to action for the first time since a December 2019 split-decision win over Liu Pingyuan. “Mr. Perfect” is currently riding a three-fight winning streak and is 6-1 in his last seven overall contests. He now takes on Brazilian grappling ace Yahya (27-10-1 MMA, 12-4-1 UFC), who picked up a submission win over Ray Rodriguez in March in his most recent appearance.

Meanwhile, Choi (14-4 MMA, 3-3 UFC) also returns for the first time since December 2019. “The Korean Superboy” is actually looking to break a three-fight losing streak – though he earned a “Fight of the Night” bonus in each of the setbacks. He now faces Chavez (11-4 MMA, 1-1 UFC), who last saw action in February, suffering a decision loss that snapped a four-fight winning streak.

With the additions to the card, the July 31 lineup includes:

Bryan Barberena vs. Jason Witt
Jinh Yu Frey vs. Ashley Yoder
Rafa Garcia vs. Chris Gruetzemacher
Collin Anglin vs. Melsik Baghdasaryan
Orion Cosce vs. Phillip Rowe
Cheyanne Buys vs. Gloria de Paula
Mounir Lazzez vs. Niklas Stolze
Kyung Ho Kang vs. Rani Yahya
Dooho Choi vs. Danny Chavez
