HE’S COMING BACK -- Former ONE lightweight world champion Eduard Folayang will see action against undefeated Russian Kharun Atlangeriev in Singapore on May 18. Meanwhile, Kevin Belingon, together with Honorio Banario and Gina Iniong, will represent the country when ONE returns to Manila for the ONE: Heroes of Honor at the Mall of Asia Arena on April 20. -- Harley Palangchao

Former ONE lightweight world champion Eduard “Landslide” Folayang is confident he is in perfect form when he faces an undefeated Russian fighter in one of the main cards of ONE: Unstoppable Dreams in Singapore on May 18.

ONE announced last week that the 34-year-old Folayang will face 25-year-old Kharun Atlangeriev  in the lightweight bout of the event that will feature three championship matches.

Folayang has been out of the limelight since losing his belt to reigning ONE featherweight and lightweight champion Martin Nguyen in November 2017. But even then, the Igorot fighter from the famed Team Lakay is busy training with fellow fighters in Baguio and nearby La Trinidad, Benguet.

The former teacher turned fighter also trains with Brazilian jiu jitsu practitioners in Manila to further transform himself into an all-around martial artist. Folayang now holds a professional MMA record of 18 wins and six losses.

His Russian opponent is an unbeaten martial artist with an 11-0 record.

ONE said that Atlangeriev has gone the distance just once in his professional stint, as 10 of his 11 career wins have come by way of finish. He aims to make an impact in his ONE debut by possibly outlasting a former world titleholder.

The main card in the Singapore event will be a rematch between ONE female atomweight world champion Angela Lee and Mei Yamaguchi.

In the co-main event, Nguyen will defend his ONE featherweight belt against Christian Lee, younger brother of Angela Lee. Nguyen previously defeated Lee via guillotine choke in 2016.

Another Filipino to see action is 29-year-old Roel “Akiyama” Rosauro of Cebu City, who trains in the art of yaw-yan. A striking specialist, Rosauro is known for his powerful hands and lightning-quick punches.

He will face Indonesian martial arts veteran Sunoto “The Terminator” Peringkat.
