ONE Championship: Eduard Folayang relishing opportunity to train in US

For the last month or so, former ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard Folayang has been putting in work in one of the most renowned mixed martial arts gyms in the world, the Jackson-Wink MMA Academy in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  There, Folayang has been able to work with the likes of world champion producing mentors like Greg Jackson, Mike Winklejohn, and Brandon Gibson, as well was train with the likes of world-class MMA stars such as Carlos Condit, Holly Holm, Diego Sanchez, Michelle Waterson, and more.          View this post on Instagram                   One thing can change everything. A win. A loss. A smart decision. A bad review. A season of success. A season of failure. The color of your skin. According to the world, at least, it seems that one thing can determine who u are-or make u question it. #TimTebow Learning from the great @gregjacksonmma #jacksonwinkmma #teamlakay2018 #onechampionship @the.landslide @jayanthony714 A post shared by Eduard Landslide Folayang (@the.landslide) on Sep 7, 2018 at 1:10pm PDT           View this post on Instagram                   Selfie with the “natural born killer” @carloscondit to wrap the day😉 @jacksonwink_mma @onechampionship @the.landslide A post shared by Eduard Landslide Folayang (@the.landslide) on Aug 28, 2018 at 6:19pm PDT            View this post on Instagram                   “The Preacher’s daughter” @hollyholm #jacksonwinkmma #landslide2018 #albuquerque #newmexico #roadtoredemption @jayanthony714 A post shared by Eduard Landslide Folayang (@the.landslide) on Sep 13, 2018 at 11:42am PDT A proud representative of the Benguet-based Team Lakay stable - which has been regarded as one of the best MMA teams in Asia - Folayang has relished the opportunity of being able to learn and train in one of the most decorated gyms in the world.  The Jackson-Wink MMA Academy of course, has also been home to world champions such as Georges St-Pierre, Jon Jones, Rashad Evans, and many others.  "It was a good experience, I learned a lot of things, especially in the areas where we are still growing and learning, like the wrestling and the ground game." Folayang shared with ABS-CBN's Steve Angeles.  "Of course we also sharpened my striking." added Folayang, who's known for his thunderous punches, kicks, and elbows.  "Napaka-ganda, nabu-boost yung confidence, lalo na pag nakikipag-sabayan ka sa training sa mga nakikita mo na mga malalaki yung pangalan sa MMA, and you experience na makipag-laro sa mga nandito, so it’s really a big experience and a big learning lesson for me." he added.  Considered as the face of Philippine MMA, Folayang has been competing in MMA professionally since 2007, getting his start in the Philippine-based promotion URCC. Folayang was also one of the pioneer members of the Singaporean-based Asian MMA juggernaut ONE Championship, which held their first event in 2011, with Folayang as one of the featured stars.  In 2016, five years after debuting for the promotion, Folayang finally captured the ONE Championship Lightweight World title, defeating Japanese MMA legend and long-time champion Shinya Aoki via third-round TKO.  Folayang would defend the title successfully once, before losing to Martin Nguyen just a day shy of a year after winning the championship.  Since then, Folayang has bounced back impressively, picking up two consecutive wins against a pair of tough, unbeaten Russian grapplers.  The 33-year old Folayang is considered as one of the top contenders in the lightweight division, and could be next in line to challenge Nguyen for the title.  While there's no word yet on what's next for the Team Lakay star, Folayang maintains that it's best to be prepared just in case the call for a world title shot comes once again.  "I’m hoping that I can be able to regain what I had lost, so the best thing to do right now is to prepare, fix those areas where I lack, and sharpen those areas where I am strong." Folayang said. "Yun naman yung pinaka-the best na gagawin kasi wala pa naman yung schedule, hindi natin alam kung kailan darating yung schedule, pero ang pinaka-maganda ay handang-handa tayo whenever the title shot is given, hindi tayo malayo sa pag-kamit ng nawala sa atin." Right now, Folayang is just one of the many willing and deserving contenders in ONE Championship's talent-rich lightweight division.  Names like Aoki, Ev Ting, Timofey Nastyukhin, and Amir Khan are all looking to show that they too are deserving challengers to Nguyen's title.  "There’s a lot, it’s a stacked division in the lightweight division, and yung pinaka-maganda ay nakikita mo kung sino ang umaangat, sino ang nag-iimprove doon sa laban so yung talagang pinaka-magandang gawin talaga ay paghandaan kung sino yung mga magiging kalaban, and then of course you prepare well, kasi anytime they can give you the best." Folayang returns flies back to Manila on Tuesday.    H/T: Steve Angeles, ABS-CBN News  .....»»

NCAA: Mapua flies higher than JRU for first win

Leaning on its newfound size advantage as well as the clutch makes of its backcourt, Mapua University is a winner in its first outing in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Skipper Christian Bunag and prized rookie Warren Bonifacio took care of the inside while Laurenz Victoria and Eric Jabel took care of the shooting as the Cardinals grounded home team Jose Rizal University, 72-60, on Thursday at the JRU Gym in Mandaluyong. The revitalized visitors took control of the contest from the get-go and didn’t give the Heavy Bombers a taste of the lead or the momentum. “Ang overall assessment ko, I’m happy that we were able to do kung ano yung mga ni-practice namin,” a satisfied head coach Atoy Co said post-game. However, the home team was still able to pull to as close as 47-50 early in the final frame before Bonifacio’s and-one capped off a 5-0 spurt that re-increased the Mapua lead to 55-47. They wouldn’t look back from there en route to a wire-to-wire win to start the season. In the end, Victoria scored 11 points on top of seven rebounds and four assists while Jabel chipped in nine markers, all but two coming in the final frame. Twin towers Bunag and Bonifacio then combined for 14 points and 19 rebounds as the Cardinals showed that they will no longer be pushovers on the inside. “Defense, defense, defense, yun talaga,” coach Atoy said. For JRU, RJ David was the lone bright spot with 12 points and three rebounds. BOX SCORES MAPUA 72 – Victoria 11, Bonifacio 10, Jabel 9, Pelayo 8, Serrano 8, Biteng 8, Lugo 6, Gamboa 6, Bunag 4, Aguirre 2, Salenga 0, Garcia 0 JRU 60 – David 12, Mendoza 11, Bordon 9, Esguerra 6, Silvarez 6, Dela Virgen 5, Santos 4, Padua 4, Miranda 3, Estrella 0, Mallari 0, Aguilar 0 QUARTER SCORES: 25-14, 34-31, 52-47, 72-60 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

UAAP: Yet again, Ateneo shows off its enviable depth with Tyler Tio

Matt Nieto sat out for Ateneo de Manila University due to a fever up against the University of the Philippines on Sunday.  For any other team, losing its lead guard would have been a big blow.  The Blue Eagles, however, only soldiered on. “Luckily for us, guys stepped up just like Tyler [Tio]. Ang laking tulong niya lalo nang nawala si Matt,” Thirdy Ravena told reporters post-game.  Indeed, starting in place of Nieto, Tio turned in his best performance of the season with 12 points and five assists – almost matching his season totals of 13 points and five assists before the game.  For the second-year stud, he was only staying true to Ateneo’s identity. “We have a philosophy in the team na ‘next man up’ so when Matt went down, obviously, we were hurt because he’s one of our better players, one of our leaders,” he said.  He then continued, “So the captains and the coaches talked to us point guards and told us we really need to step up.”  Tio did just that, holding down the for the Blue Eagles and helping them get back on track.  Still staying true to their identity, though, he also deflected the credit to his fellow guards in SJ Belangel, Jolo Mendoza, and Adrian Wong. As he put it, “I give props also to Jolo, SJ, and Adrian. It wasn’t just me who stepped up so we just wanted to fill the void left by Matt.”  ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
