MANILA, Philippines – Aside from Eduard "Landslide" Folayang, several other Filipino mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters will also see action in the ONE: Kings of Destiny fight card on April 21 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Folayang is making the first defense of his ONE lightweight world title against Malaysia's Ev "E.T." Ting in the main event, but before "Landslide" fights in front of his compatriots again, fight fans in Manila will first get a glimpse of some of the rising stars of Filipino MMA.
Kevin "The Silencer" Belingon, a stablemate of Folayang at the famed Team Lakay, will battle Finland's Toni "Dynamite" Tauru in a bantamweight match in the undercard. Belingon is looking to build on his decision victory over Tajikistan's Muin Gafurov in his previous match.
Another Team Lakay standout, Danny Kingad, will stake his perfect 4-0 record against Malaysia's Muhammad Aiman. Kingad is coming off a submission victory over fellow Filipino Eugene Toquero, and he represents a tough test for the 22-year-old Malaysian.
Toquero, for his part, will try to bounce back from his loss when he battles Indonesia's Stefer Rahardian. The Indonesian fighter has an unbeaten 5-0 record.
Also seeing action in the undercard is Filipina fighter Gina Iniong, who is making her atomweight debut against Filipina-English fighter Natalie Gonzales Hills.
The Catalan fighting family will be represented by 26-year-old Robin, who will make his second appearance inside the ONE Championship cage against compatriot Jeremy Miado in a strawweight bout. The fight will be Miado's ONE debut.
