Folayang sets road to championship in SG
by ONE release

Former ONE lightweight world champion Eduard “Landslide” Folayang had a memorable trip to Singapore nearly two years ago when he hoisted an intricately-crafted hardware above his head in celebration after claiming the biggest victory of his professional mixed martial arts career.

Folayang’s world title-clinching performance against Shinya Aoki at ONE: Defending Honor in November 2016 was a win that no one ever expected, but what made it more spectacular was how the beloved Filipino superstar defeated the Japanese MMA legend with his bare hands.

Folayang will be setting foot on Singaporean soil once more as he is set to lock horns with undefeated Russian prospect Kharun Atlangeriev on the undercard of ONE: Unstoppable Dream on May 18.

Now set to return to the ONE Championship cage in Singapore, Folayang is slated to square off with Atlangeriev with the intention of putting himself back in the world title picture.

Six months ago, Folayang suffered an excruciating setback in the hands of ONE featherweight world champion Martin Nguyen.

In the aftermath of his unsuccessful second title defense against Nguyen, Folayang admitted that he did not exactly know what to say or how to address the loss.

The Baguio native Folayang stressed that he needed to relax and ease his mind before he could even think about returning to Team Lakay and resume training for another bout.

In his first assignment since relinquishing his possession of the ONE lightweight world championship to Nguyen last November, Folayang crosses paths with Atlangeriev, a combatant with a perfect 11-0 record.

Known by his moniker “The Predator” due to his intense demeanor inside the cage, Atlangeriev has gone the distance just once in his prizefighting stint as 10 of his 11 career wins have come by way of finish.

Atlangeriev seeks to make an impact in his ONE Championship debut by defeating a former world titleholder in Folayang.
