Igorot Fighter Eric Kelly Is Fighting Tomorrow Night. Watch This Preview Of The Bout.

Tomorrow night at the TNU Sports Arena in Taipei, Taiwan, a Cordilleran mixed martial artist will enter the cage of the One Fighting Championship to do battle with a very dangerous fighter from Australia. Eric "The Natural" Kelly of Baguio City and Rob "Ruthless" Lisita of New South Wales will be headlining ONE FC 18: War of Dragons. A lot is at stake in this match-up. Whoever clinches the victory will set himself up for a chance to fight for the ONE FC featherweight championship belt which is currently held by Koji Oishi of Japan.

Oishi has already been penciled to defend his belt on August 29, 2014 at the World Trade Centre in Dubai against a yet to be named opponent. So whoever wins tomorrow night between Kelly and Lisita will likely fight for the title. It is a very intriguing bout as Kelly and Lisita are submission specialists. Majority of their wins came via submissions. Watch the preview for the upcoming fight below.

Rob Lisita: "When that bell rings, I'm coming to get you. I'm coming to kill. It's the way I fight. I'm aggressive. I'm fast-paced. And I get into people's face and I make it into a dog fight. You know I can fight from the outside and I can box. Like I said, I'm not looking for points, I'm looking for the finish."

Eric Kelly: "I'm preparing hard. I'm training hard to get back to the championship belt again. I'm eager to fight and I'm eager to win."
