Two champions in the ONE promotion will meet in a “super-fight” this November, as reigning lightweight titleholder Eduard Folayang faces featherweight champion Martin Nguyen.
The event takes place November 10 from the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines.
Folayang’s title will be on the line, as the fight will be contested at 155 pounds. It marks the first time ONE has placed a champion vs. a champion in multiple divisions.
Last year, Folayang (18-5) shocked the MMA world when he finished Shinya Aoki. He defended his title against Ev Ting this past April.
Nguyen (9-1) stopped Marat Gafurov is another upset in August, winning his fifth consecutive fight.
