In the main event, reigning lightweight champion Eduard Folayang will battle it out against featherweight champion Martin Nguyen in a clash that is sure to explode.
Fighting in front of what will surely be a vociferous and passionate home crowd, Folayang is one of the Philippines’ most experienced martial artists. With a professional record of 18-5, the 33 year old veteran is currently on a winning streak of four which includes a TKO over Japanese legend Shinya Aoki to claim the lightweight title. Beating Ev Ting in his first defence of the title, Folayang will face a stern test against Nguyen in what has been dubbed a cross-divisional showdown.
28 year old Australian Martin Nguyen is a dangerous finisher and currently boasts a professional record of 9-1. In his most recent fight in the promotion, Nguyen struck with the biggest victory of his career when he stopped former undefeated featherweight champion, Marat Gafurov.
This intriguing clash will be one to keep an eye on and one that will hopefully live up to expectations. Stayed tuned for more ONE Championship announcements in the future.
