Kamal Shalorus-Eduard Folayang Bout Targeted for One FC 9 on May 31



Former UFC lightweight Kamal Shalorus is expected to make his One Fighting Championship debut on May 31 against Eduard Folayang at One FC 9.

Shalorus recently announced the booking on his Facebook page, and Sherdog.com subsequently confirmed the promotion’s planned pairing with a One FC official. Sherdog’s source verified that the showdown is “very likely,” though Folayang has not yet officially accepted the bout. One FC 9 takes place at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Philippines, and will see Honorio Banario defend his featherweight title against Bae Young Kwon.

Shalorus, 35, received his UFC release last year following three straight Octagon losses, falling to Jim Miller, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Rafael dos Anjos. Prior to those setbacks, “The Prince of Persia” had posted career mark of 7-0-2, earning three wins under the World Extreme Cagefighting banner from November 2009 to December 2010.

Folayang, 28, has lost two of his last three after winning 11 of his first 12 bouts and capturing the Universal Reality Combat Championship welterweight title. After posting a 1-1 record in the One FC cage last year, the Filipino fighter was defeated in his most recent in-cage appearance, suffering a technical knockout defeat to Lowen Tynanes at URCC 22 this past December.
