25 April 2018 – Singapore: Team Lakay veteran Eduard “Landslide” Folayang (18-6) of Baguio City, Philippines is set to make his highly-anticipated return to action against Russia’s Kharun “Predator” Atlangeriev (11-0). The two are scheduled for a three-round lightweight bout at “ONE: Unstoppable Dreams” on May 11, 2018 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore.
“I’ve seen some tape of my next opponent Kharun Atlangeriev, and I’d say he has some good technical skills,” Folayang stated. “I’m expecting to strike with him first though, so I want to test what he’s like on the feet. This is going to be a matter of game plans and how each guy can adapt.”
A veteran of the mixed martial arts sport, Folayang has seen every style there is to see. Still, he said he will adjust to whatever Atlangeriev comes into battle with.
“I’m excited to be back in action,” Folayang said. “It’s been a while and I’m ready to take my career back to the top. I know it won’t be easy, but I’m prepared to do what it takes to climb back up.”
“There are so many great lightweight competitors in this organization, but I feel like I’m still considered one of the best in this division,” the Team Lakay fighter continued. “This match in Singapore is important because I want to show fans that I can still become champion.”
