Brandon Vera is considered to be one of the best fighters at light heavyweight and heavyweight. The Filipino-American has an MMA record of 12 wins and 7 losses, having fought the best the sport has to offer over the course of his career. Now, Vera has the chance to bring his signature brand of kickboxing into the ONE FC cage.

Brandon Vera stated, “I’m doing it for my family. For the first time, my family in the Philippines will be able to witness me live in action! This is a huge fight for me and I want to win for them.”

Ana Julaton is a former WBO and IBA Super Bantamweight champion who is now pursuing success in the world of mixed martial arts. Julaton made her professional mixed martial arts debut in Manila in May and will once again look to emerge victorious in front of the thousands of Filipino fans cheering her on.

Ana Julaton stated, “I have grown significantly as a mixed martial artist. I have dedicated myself in the past three months to improve my grappling, working with Ricky Lundell. Fans can prepare to see a new version of me when I step into the cage this Friday.”

Eduard Folayang is one of the most popular sports figures in the Philippines. A wushu practitioner, the former schoolteacher transitioned to mixed martial arts and has an impressive record of 14 wins and four losses so far in his career. He has proven his calibre, defeating highly touted star Vincent Latoel and the former ONE FC Lightweight World Champion, Kotetsu Boku.

Eduard Folayang stated, “This is an exciting time to be a fan of mixed martial arts in the Philippines. ONE FC has brought the best international stars to Manila to test the top Filipino stars. Friday will be a hallmark day for the country as we prove we have some of the best mixed martial artists in the world.”

Honorio Banario has a record of 8-4 and is hungry for a win, with the ultimate goal of landing another shot at ONE FC gold down the road. Known for his aggressive yet calculated approach to striking, Banario will need to overcome the toughest challenge of his career against Brazilian featherweight standout Herbert Burns before he can consider himself back in the running for the ONE FC Featherweight world title.

Honorio Banario stated, “I have no pressure heading into this fight. I can fight with the support of the hometown fans behind me and I’m confident whether its standing or on the ground!”

Kevin Belingon is one of the best bantamweights to hail from the Philippines, renowned for his striking ability while possessing incredible speed and power. He can get in and out of range without being taken down or countered and can inflict serious damage with just a single strike. To top it off, Belingon has some of the most dangerous kicks in the entire division, rounding things out with explosive takedowns and devastating ground-and-pound. Belingon is set to come back stronger this time against Okazaki in front of his home crowd.

Kevin Belingon stated, “I want to get back on track towards the title, and it begins with a victory this Friday! I will finish him and make a statement!”
