Igorot Fighter Eric Kelly To Fight Jadamba Narantungalag For The One FC Featherweight Belt

Writing for the mixed martial arts website, C.J. Tuttle said that the upcoming One Fighting Championship event in Manila this December will feature a bout between Cordilleran fighter Eric Kelly and Jadamba Narantungalag of Mongolia. The Mongolian currently holds the One FC's featherweight belt, a strap he won last August of this year from Koji Oishi of Japan.

No official announcement came from the One FC as to Kelly's opponent. Tuttle didn't provide a source as to why he said that Kelly's opponent will be Narantungalag. However, most fans who are familiar with the One FC's roster of fighters believe that Kelly should be fighting for the organization's belt as he is the number one contender.

Also fighting in the event in Manila dubbed Warrior's Way are Eduard Folayang and Kevin Belingon. Their opponents haven't been announced yet.

The main event for Warrior's Way will be a heavyweight showdown between former Ultimate Fighting Championship standout Brandon Vera and Igor Subora of Ukraine. The two combatants will be entering the One FC cage for the first time. Warrior's Way will be staged at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City on December 5, 2014.
