Few fighters are as unassuming as "The Korean Superboy" Doo Ho Choi. This kid looks like he's constantly waiting for his mom to come and pick him up after school. Choi definitely doesn't look like one of the rising stars in the UFC, but behind that cherubic face lies the mind of an assassin.

If you are a member of the uninitiated, it'd be hard to believe looking into those innocent eyes that Choi is on a thirteen fight win streak. Only two of those wins were decisions, the rest his victories were by knockout or TKO ... a fact Thiago Tavares learned first hand in Choi's last bout.

Now, It looks like Choi has set his targets on Cub Swanson with the single, most polite challenge in MMA history.

“I have been watching you since even before I made my UFC debut,” Choi said to SPOTV. "I think it will be a good fight between the two of us. We both always try to knock out our opponents. I like those types of fighters."

A fight with the UFC veteran sounds like, not only a stylistic dream, but probably the right step for Choi's ascension.

Choi went on with his humble request, even seeing if Swanson could put in a good word for him.

"Even though my ranking isn’t high now, like you mentioned before, it’s not important whether you fight rookies or top-ranked fighters. If you could tell the UFC that you also want to fight me, that would be great. I would appreciate it," Choi added.
