PHILIPPINE MMA poster boy Eduard Foloyang heads the list of Filipino fighters in the ONE FC – Rise of Heroes at the SM Mall of Asia.

Folayang takes on former ONE FC lightweight champion Kotetsu Boku in the event’s co-feature. The MMA show is headlined by ONE FC bantamweight titleholder Bibiano Fernandes (15-3) against mandatory challenger Masakatsu Ueda (18-2-2).

After back-to-back losses, Folayang bounced back with a unanimous decision over Vincent Latoel. The 36-year-old Boku also broke a two-fight losing slump with a first round knockout over Arnaud Lepont in his last fight.

The 29-year-old Folayang is 13-4, while Boku, a veteran Japanese MMA fighter, is 21-9-2.

Folayang’s teammate at Team Lakay, Rey Docyogen (10-2), faces Guamanian Josh Alvarez (13-4).

Docyogen attempts to end a two-fight losing streak, while Alvarez also wants to return to the winning column after losing his last fight.
