Two of the most iconic mixed martial arts fighters in the Philippines are back in action on December 5, 2014 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines as Eduard Folayang and Eric Kelly are booked to fight their respective to be announced opponents at One FC – Warriors Way.
Aside from Folayang and Kelly, another big name in the Philippine MMA scene is set to perform at the MOA Arena on December as former UFC fighter Brandon “The Truth” Vera makes his promotional debut against former URCC standout, Igor Subora, according to Sherdog.com here.
Folayang is on a two-fight winning streak including his unanimous decision victory against the former One FC lightweight champ Kotetsu Boku in May. Though his opponent is yet to be named by the promotion, expect the Filipino fighter to be in shape as always, as he aims closer for a shot at the title.
Also, number 1 featherweight title contender Eric Kelly will likely challenge the current 145 pound champion Jadamba Narantungalag for his title.
After submitting “Ruthless” Rob Lisita in July at One FC 18, Kelly was then assured to fight for the title after a month in Dubai against the then chanpion Koji Oishi, but he sustained a pretty serious nose injury and didn’t have the time to heal.
Jadamba took Kelly’s spot in fighting Oishi for the title in Dubai. The Mongolian dominated Oishi and got the unanimous decision victory against the Japanese MMA vet and became the new One FC Featherweight king.
