URCC 22 is set to feature the return of two of the promotions hottest commodities. Eduard Folyang and Eric Kelly.
Both fighters have crossed over to ONE FC and seen high levels of success and a steep rise in popularity.
The 12-2 Eduard Folyang will be facing 1-0 Lowen Tynanes from the USA.
While this may look a mis-match, there is still a lot at stake for Folyang. A loss in URCC may impact his path and status in ONE FC. Much like Bellator fighters who while under contract have gone outside of the promotion and lost…. a loss in URCC will make it much harder for the staff and pr at ONE FC to promote you as a worthy title contender.
None the less Folyang is the more experienced and dangerous fighter, seeing him and Kelly as main event fighters in URCC is kinda’ cool and will definitely have me tuning in to URCC.
Eric Kelly who is riding high off a huge win in ONE FC over former UFC legend Jens Pulver, is set to take on the 1-1 Brad Terrey. Kelly is now an impressive 8-0 in his career and has alot to prove to himself and ONE FC in this fight.
Brad Terrey much like Lowen Tynanes, has nothing at all to lose. Fighting out of Phuket Top Team he will have a tough training camp with a strong team of fighters, no doubt looking to get the under-dog win over the very popular Eric Kelly.
The event is set to take place on December 1 at the SM Mall Of Asia Arena, one of the biggest venues in the Philippines.
We can expect the home crowd to give a huge reception to there returning stars, and support that may well see them take a little extra motivation into the cage.
