One FC: A Sol Kwon Predicts Pain and Violence for His Fight with Eduard Folayang


A Sol Kwon

If someone has Korea’s A Sol Kwon listed as an underdog going into his main event fight against Eduard Folayang at One FC this weekend, they forgot to tell him.

The current Heat FC welterweight champion stepped in on short notice after Ole Laursen was forced out of the bout due to an injury.

Kwon took the fight on short notice, and according to most oddsmakers he’s listed as a heavy underdog, but he’d like to know who those oddsmakers are exactly.

“Huh? Said who?” Kwon told MMAWeekly.com when asked about being the underdog. “Check, check. Reality check.”

When the call came in for Kwon to take the fight there really wasn’t much of a decision to be made. If he’s healthy, he’s training and if he’s training, he’s ready to fight.

“I never back down as long as I’m healthy,” Kwon stated. “I always train so I’m on deck, loaded, cocked and finger on trigger. I’m “the Ace. ” You know. ”

Facing Kwon in One FC’s main event is 9-1 fighter Eduard Folyang. Folayang is considered one of the top prospects in all of Asia, but none of that matters to the Korean. He’ll get knocked out or finished the same as a seasoned veteran or a day one rookie.

“I admire his past accomplishments. He will only be embracing these pasts after Saturday night, on his way back to the Philippines,” said Kwon. “The present day will be so painful to him. Don’t get me wrong. I respect him. The thing is, I respect my skills more. Reality.”

Throughout his career, Kwon has been known as a very exciting fighter who is more than happy to give the crowd what they paid for.

This time however they might be paying for some dry cleaning bills after he busts Folayang up in their fight.

“Expect more. More violence. More excitement. Best fatality,” Kwon stated. “Do me a favor. Keep your eyes open wide. Watch. Borderline-legal fist-fest. Then, me helping Folayang get up with a smile. He won’t remember what occurred or why he’s being let up by the Ace, though.”

Obviously not short on confidence, Kwon also hopes that One FC is able to reignite the flame of big time MMA in Asia. Since the days of Pride in Japan, mixed martial arts has continued to survive, but rarely flourish.

He’s hopeful One FC can change that.

“Extremely pleased working with One FC. Very professional and great potential. We need this kind of fireworks to make noise and get noticed by worldwide fans. Could be the neo-Pride. We might finally be able to stop chasing the phantom of Pride FC with the success of OFC. I’m stoked to be a part of it,” Kwon stated.

Kwon will hopefully deliver some of those very fireworks when he faces Eduard Folayang in the main event of One FC this weekend in Singapore.
