Eduard Fuolayang of Team Lakay is set to compete against defending champ Shinya Aoki at the One Championship world lightweight championship in November, according to reports!
Fuolayang will finally get a chance at the belt, as the championship fight will be set at the Singapore Indoor Stadium for the One: Defending Honor event, on November 11.
According to ONE Championship CEO Victor Cui,
“Filipino fight fans have been waiting for a long time for this one. Folayang has been with ONE Championship since the beginning and has performed at an extremely high level in his last couple of bouts. He is deserving of a title shot which he earned with victories over Tetsuya Yamada and Adrian Pang.”
Fuolayang, a wushu specialist, has amassed a stellar 16-5 mixed martial arts record in the eight years that he has been fighting professionally, and even more so in his recent victories against Tetsuya Yamada and Adrian Pang.
