We are a night's sleep away from the biggest mixed martial arts event in Philippine history! One Fighting Championship: Pride of A Nation, which will take place this Friday (August 31) at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, has a star-studded fight card that includes three Pinoy warriors.
The notable fights on the stacked event: Eduard "The Landslide" Folayang aims to solidify his local MMA poster boy status against Switzerland's Felipe Enomoto; Pinoy Eric "The Natural" Kelly and former UFC Lightweight champ Jens "Lil Evil" Pulver goes to toe to toe in the preliminary card; Former UFC Heavyweight champions Andrei Arlovski and Tim Sylvia face each other for the fourth time in the co-main event; and famed undefeated grappling artists Bibiano Fernandes and Gustavo Falciroli headline the evening.
We truly, madly, seriously cannot wait for tomorrow to come that we decided to come up our own primer for this MMA supershow. But first, here's the teaser video for the event:
