Rey Docyogen Added To The Undercard Of One Fighting Championship: Rise Of Heroes

One Fighting Championship has officially announced that Rey Docyogen (10-2-0) will be fighting in the undercard of ONE FC 15: Rise of Heroes which will be held on May 2 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Manila. The Team Lakay mixed martial artist will be facing Josh Alvarez (12-6-0) of Guam.

This is an interesting matchup as both fighters are coming off losses in the ONE FC. In his last two fights, both of which were in the ONE FC, Docyogen lost to Shinichi Kojima (February 2013) and Yasuhiro Urushitani (May 2013). Alvarez on the other hand lost to Koetsu Okazaki in December 2013 in his ONE FC debut.

Docyogen can strike and grapple. Proof of this is his 4 wins by knockout and another 4 wins by submission. Alvarez doesn't have the power of Docyogen but he seems to have the advantage if the fight goes to the ground. Nine of his twelve professional wins came via submissions. Needless to say, Docyogen significantly improves his chances of taking the victory if he turns this into a stand-up match.

Also in the fight card are two Team Lakay fighters. In the co-main event, Eduard Folayang (13-4-0) tussles with Kotetsu Boku (21-9-2) of Japan while Jujeath Nagaowa makes her MMA debut against India's Jeet Toshi (2-1-0).
