Despite Eduard Folayang’s lopsided win over Felipe Enomoto in what was dubbed a de facto title eliminator this passed weekend, the Filipino wu shu expert will not be receiving a shot at the inaugural ONE FC Lightweight Championship at the promotion’s sixth offering. Instead, Zorobabel Moreira will meet Ole Laursen for the title at ONE FC 6 in Singapore.
Moreira (7-1) is coming off the domination Roger Huerta at ONE FC 4, which saw “Zoro” knockout the UFC veteran in the second round with a brutal soccer kick. The Brazilian has earned finishes in all but one of his wins.
Laursen (6-3) comes into the bout behind a split decision win over the aforementioned Folayang at ONE FC 3. “Iron Fist” is 6-1 in his last seven fights, with the only loss coming to Felipe Enomoto in his ONE FC debut.
ONE FC 6: Rise of Kings takes place at the Singapore Indoor Arena on October 6th, the card is anchored by former DREAM Lightweight Champion Shinya Aoki’s promotional debut as he takes on Arnaud Lepont.
