Folayang out to teach MMA ‘lesson’ to Nguyen in lightweight title clash

MANILA, Philippines — Just another day in class with teacher Eduard Folayang.

“Ituturo ko sa kanya is it’s my kingdom sa lightweight,” the Team Lakay skipper said of his upcoming assignment. “It will be a good lesson for him to try my division.”

“Division ko of course is bigger compared sa mga nasa featherweight. Mas mataas 'yung risk na itinataya niya,” the 18-5 Wushu warrior said. "Siyempre kung maganda 'yung resulta for him, then it will be a great return for him.”

Nguyen, who was riding on a four straight victories, unseated Marat Gafurov just this August. He is moving to Lightweight in the first-ever crossover clash in the promotion.
