Eduard Folayang And Jujeath Nagaowa Added To ONE FC 23: Warrior's Way Card

Two more Cordilleran mixed martial arts fighters have been added to the undercard of One Fighting Championship 23: Warrior's Way, a combat sports event scheduled to unfold at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila this coming December 5. The One Fighting Championship (ONE FC), the biggest MMA organization in Asia, has announced on Thursday that Eduard Folayang and Jujeath Nagaowa will be seeing action on said date.

Folayang (14-4-0) will be welcoming Timofey Nastyukhin (7-1-0) of Russia into the ONE FC. Based on the Russian fighter's record, he has both striking and grappling skills. Of his seven career victories, three came by knockout and four by submission. He fought four times this year alone and he won all of them either via submission or knockout.

Folayang is a ONE FC veteran, having fought six times under the company. Of these six fights, he won four and lost two. Folayang's most recent outing in the ONE FC was a dominant win over Japan's Kotetsu Boku last May. Prior to that, he cruised to a decision victory over Vincent Latoel of the Netherlands.

Nagaowa (1-0-0), a former professional boxer who transitioned into MMA last May, will be facing Tharoth Sam (2-0-0) of Cambodia. In her MMA debut in May of this year, Nagaowa knocked out Jeet Toshi of India in the second round. Her upcoming opponent, Sam, won her two MMA bouts via submission.

The event will be headlined by a championship tussle between Bibiano Fernandez of Brazil and Dae Hwan Kim of South Korea.
