And this is just what the homegrown talent from the famed Team Lakay stable wants and needs.

“As a martial artist, I am constantly in search of the biggest challenges,” Folayang said. “As a champion, I welcome any challenger. Martin is one of the bests in the world and it is an honor to share the cage with him.”

Taking on one of the elites, Folayang will stake his lightweight strap against the Australian Nguyen, who has been riding on a five-match winning streak.
