Eduard Folayang and EV Ting Faces off in Manila

ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard “Landslide” Folayang of Baguio City, Philippines, and challenger Ev “E.T.” Ting of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia faced off in front of the media today in anticipation of their future fight for the largest sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), in conjunction with Predator gaming laptops entitled ONE: KINGS OF DESTINY which will happen on April 21, 2017 at the mall of Asia Arena. The face off was held at the Top of the Citi Restaurant in Citibank Tower on Tuesday, 28 March, in Manila.



During the interview, Eduard Folayang, ONE Lightweight World Champion, stated: “I always consider every fight a tough one because every fighter goes into the cage with the intent to give more than a hundred per cent of themselves. Every fighter prepares very well at this level and they all have their own uniqueness and strategy. It all depends on how our styles will match up. Keeping the title is what I plan to do. This title means a lot to me, and I can’t just let it go easily.”



While Ev Ting, ONE world title challenger, stated: “Eduard displayed the best version of himself in the Shinya (Aoki) fight when he won the title. He displayed a lot of patience, he exploded at the right times, and put pressure on at the right times, so he showed a very top-caliber Eduard Folayang, and I expect nothing less in April. His wrestling is solid, his timing is obviously one of his strongest strengths, and he defended everything from Shinya despite strong positioning, so yeah, I have a hard task ahead of me.”


Eduard “Landslide” Folayang of the legendary Team Lakay in Baguio City is one of the Philippines’ most experienced mixed martial artists. After nearly a decade of competing in various promotions, Folayang has amassed an impressive 17-5 professional MMA record. The 33-year-old veteran authored a career resurgence in 2016, winning three consecutive bouts against high-profile opponents while showcasing a highly-improved wrestling and grappling arsenal. In his last bout, Folayang shocked the world by capturing the ONE Lightweight World Championship with a sensational victory over Japanese MMA legend Shinya Aoki. Folayang will now put his title on the line against Ev Ting.


Ev “E.T.” Ting is a mixed martial artist with deep roots in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Living and training out of Auckland, New Zealand, Ting owns a stellar 13-3 professional record, including four wins by submission and four exciting knockouts. A winner of his last four bouts over top-caliber opponents, Ting is one of the most talented mixed martial artists to come out of Malaysia. In his most recent bout last February, Ting overcame a tough challenge from MMA veteran Kamal Shalorus to win by split decision. The victory earned him a date with ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard Folayang in Manila.

The two also battled it out in a “StreetFight” game to test the Predator gaming laptops where EV emerged as the winner.
