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.
