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  .....»»

PVL: Tots Carlos thinks this is the hungriest UP has ever been

For the past 36 years, not once did University of the Philippines taste a championship in any major league. But on one stormy Wednesday night, the Lady Maroons ended their title drought in the second season of the PVL Collegiate Conference at the expense of Far Eastern University. They achieved all this in spite of not having their ace Tots Carlos. Carlos was sidelined for the PVL due to a stress fracture in her right shin. She has been recovering from the injury for four months already. With UP achieving such a huge feat without her, Carlos can't deny the mix of emotions she is in right now. "Syempre happy [ako] pero sa lugar ko mixed emotions kasi syempre history, sino ba namang may ayaw na kasama kang naglalaro knowing na yun nga, makakatulong ka sa team," she said. However, her hurting right shin did not stop her from showing support for the Lady Maroons. Carlos stood near the court together with her other teammates, screaming UP Fight for almost every single moment regardless if they were leading or not. "Cheer lang kami. Sabi ko sa mga teammates ko, wag tayong tumigil kahit sobrang down na nila cheer pa rin kami ng cheer," she recalled about their cheering moments as their chants were joined by the screams from hundreds of UP supporters present at the Filoil Flying V Centre. "Sobrang nagulat kami. Grabe yung first game saka game two ng Finals, sobrang dami ng tao. On behalf of my team, gusto ko mag thank you sa kanila na kahit down yung team, kahit sampu pa yung lamang ng kalaban, di sila tumitigil sa pag cheer," she elaborated. Aside from her overflowing gratitude to the UP community for pressing on with the team, Carlos' pride for her teammates specifically tournament and Finals MVP Isa Molde, Ayel Estranero, and Marian Buitre was overflowing too. "Sobrang proud [ako kay Isa], sobrang nag-step up sya eh. Dati di mo naman maiiwasan, [kapag] andun ako, syempre iniiisip mo oh katulong ko naman si ganito eh. Pero ngayon sobrang nag-step up sya. Pero lahat nag contribute. Si Marian [Buitre], sobrang nag imporve din. Si Ayel [Estranero], wala akong masabi," she said beaming with pride. "Sobrang shookt ako sa teammates ko kasi kahit UAAP game never ko sila nakita ganyan ka gutom sa panalo," she added. She rushed to the court the moment the championship point from Estranero's service ace was called hugging her teammates especially the seniors.   Tournament MVP Isa Molde emotional after UP's first ever championship in any major league in 36 years. She is being hugged by injured Tots Carlos. #PVLCollegiateConference2018 @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/7AYP5uqpds — Danine Cruz (@the9cruz) September 12, 2018   UP's emotional celebration right after the championship point. @abscbnsports #PVLCollegiateConference2018 pic.twitter.com/ah3jCvd7d5 — Danine Cruz (@the9cruz) September 12, 2018   Looking forward to their next few preparations and their main league, the UAAP, Carlos vows to come back strong especially that she is already getting back to the grind. "Nagte-training na ako konti konti, and then nagiintay na lang ako ng clearance. Pero nakaka-spike na ako. Bibigay ko talaga best ko kahit anong laro pa yan," she said. Now that the Lady Maroons have showed such hunger for a win, expect a hungrier UP and wilder UP crowd in their next tournaments. "Sana di mag sawa [yung fans], and start pa lang to eh, UAAP sana andun pa rin sila. Lagi lang nila iisipin na lahat ng ginagawa namin para sa kanila," Carlos said. Given this achievement, UP has shown that they have come a long way from their losing years. With a topnotch coach in Godfrey Okumu, a promising lineup of players, and an enamored crowd, the Lady Maroons have nowhere to go but up. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @the9cruz.....»»

PVL: FEU to bank on Finals experience against newbie UP

If there will be one specific advantage in the Finals that Far Eastern University will look to capitalize on when the Lady Tamaraws face University of the Philippines for the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference crown, it’s definitely their championship experience. Head coach George Pascua sees it as a weapon that they could use against the first-time finalists Lady Maroons when their best-of-three title showdown begins Sunday. FEU finished runner-up in last year’s edition and took home silver in UAAP Season 80. The Lady Tamaraws also enjoy the luxury of having a seasoned and battle-tested core.    UP’s best finish in a high level tournament was a Final Four stint in the UAAP three years ago.        “Ah oo, malaking advantage ‘yun kasi ‘yun na nga experienced na ‘yung players namin. ‘Yung UP first time nila so kahit papano (lamang kami doon),” said Pascua, whose squad booted out University of Sto. Tomas in the Final Four in a come-from-behind series win for a return stint in the Finals. Pascua will pin his hopes on veterans Jerrili Malabanan, Celine Domingo, Heather Guino-o, setter Kyle Negrito and top rookie Lycha Ebon. Still, the mentor knows that UP isn’t a pushover team especially after the fourth seed Lady Maroons scored a huge upset over Adamson University, which swept the elimination.         “Pero syempre mahirap din magkumpyansa kasi ang labanan ngayon character na lang eh kasi lahat ng teams unpredictable eh,” he said. “Hindi mo alam kung sino ‘yung mananalo that day so depende na lang sa player kung ano ang magiging desire nila.” FEU defeated UP in the elims but the Lady Tams will face a different Lady Maroons side. UP started out shaky but slowly jelled and found their rhythm as the conference progressed. The Lady Maroons’ veterans also stepped up their game with the likes of Marian Buitre, Marist Layug, Aie Gannaban and sophomore Roselyn Rosier helping out prized hitter Isa Molde on offense and in floor defense.  UP head coach Godfrey Okumu also has at his disposal veteran setter Ayel Estranero and a young but steady playmaker Marianne Sotomil. With the Lady Maroons' seemingly diverse rotation despite the absence of injured Tots Carlos and Nicole Magasarile, Pascua and his coaching staff are devicing a good game plan to defeat the Diliman-based squad.   “‘Yung UP very unpredictable din ang laro nila kumbaga hindi mo alam kung sino ang magle-level up sa kanila,” Pascua said. “Every game kasi iba ‘yung ano nila so meron din kaming specific person na binabantayan sina Molde, Buitre.” “Siyempre paplanuhin namin ‘yang game plan for UP,” he closed.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Naghihintay pa kami ng kapalit ni coach Jerry Yee -- Carlos

The University of the Philippines has yet to name a new coach almost a month after head coach Jerry Yee decided to quit his post after four seasons. The Lady Maroons are still sticking with the system left behind by Yee, who handled the Diliman-based squad.      “Sa ngayon kasi wala pang sinasabi (na papalit),” said third year player Diana Carlos on Monday after UP’s 25-19, 25-13, 25-19, win against listless College of St. Benilde on Monday in Group B of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. “Sa ngayon more training and naghihintay kami kung sino ang papalit kay coach,” she added. The Lady Maroons scored their second straight win in three outings to keep their semifinals hopes alive. Carlos said that their five-set loss to the unbeaten Adamson University in their tournament debut was an eye-opener for the team.  “Talo kami sa Adamson hindi naman sa inaano ko (ang Adamson) pero yung skills kasi namin. Tinalo kami ng sarili naming,” she recalled. “Sa fifth set six straight points di kami gumalaw. Siyempre nagising kami kaya kailangan naming bumawi talaga.” UP remains in the thick of the battle for the two best-of-three semifinals slots. The Lady Maroons’s last two assignments are against San Beda College (2-1) on Saturday and Arellano University (3-1) on Sep. 30.    “Siyempre sobrang important kasi alam natin ang San Beda at Arellano mga nagta-top 4 sa NCAA ‘yan eh,” said Carlos. “Wala namang pinagkaiba ang NCAA sa UAAP eh. Kailangan lang naming mag-focus at mindset talaga.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

PVL: Tiamzon proves worth for Perlas Spikers

BanKo is enjoying its best start so far in the Premier Volleyball League. Unbeaten in five outings, the Perlas Spikers are on the right track in their quest to capture the elusive title in the second edition of the league’s Open Conference. One player who stood out in BanKo’s romp is veteran hitter Nicole Tiamzon. She may not be as celebrated as other stars but she’s has been consistently proving her worth with her intensity, energy and efficiency. The former University of the Philippines star is averaging 15 points per game as a vital cog on offense, alongside Dzi Gervacio. “Sabi nga ni coach (Dong Dela Cruz) every time kahit sino yung hugutin mo sa bench nakakapag-contribute naman,” said Tiamzon. “So ‘pag binigyan ka ng task, 'pag binigyan ka ng opportunity makapaglaro gawin mo yung part mo, hindi ka man makapatay sa opensa bawi ka sa depensa,” she added. On Wednesday, Tiamzon dropped 20 points in the Perlas Spikers’ 25-21, 23-25, 29-27, 25-18, victory over Tacloban. Tiamzon unleashed 15 attacks, three aces and a pair of kill blocks for BanKo. But Tiamzon was quick to downplay her role in the team, giving credit to her teammates for adhering to their system. “Everyone can contribute, I mean kahit open, or mapa-quick,” she said. “’Yun nga babalik lang din ako doon na everyone can contribute naman.” Tiamzon and the Perlas Spikers will get their toughest test next week when they take on star-studded Creamline. “One week kami walang game, siguro tuloy tuloy lang kami ng training and kailangan lang namin ayusin yung mga kailangan namin ayusin talaga,” she said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 94: Handa at palaban kami ngayon –- Napa

Letran just secured a spot in the Final Four and is in the right path to vie for the last semifinals twice-to-beat advantage in the NCAA Season 94 seniors basketball competition. The Knights’ chances for the Final Four bonus now depends on their next two assignments and a little help from fate. “’Yung tadhana na ang magsasabi kung aabot ba kami o hindi,” said Napa moments after Letran destroyed San Sebastian College, 79-61, Tuesday for its fifth straight win at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Sporting a 12-4 win-loss record at solo third, the Intramuros-based squad now needs to sweep their last two outings against College of St. Benilde and University of Perpetual Help and pray hard for Lyceum of the Philippines University (14-2) or three-peat-seeking San Beda University (14-1) not to reach 15 wins to force a playoff for the semis incentive. But Napa’s focus right now is not about the semifinals scenario but on building his team’s momentum. “Pero hindi na namin iniisip yun eh (twice-to-beat),” he said. “Kung di namin makuha ang twice-to-beat o makuha namin ang twice-to-beat magtatrabaho pa rin kami.” His concern is to make sure that his squad will be ready for the Final Four -- with or without an incentive.   “Kung sino man ang makakatapat namin ay talagang paghahadaan namin dahil kaming Letran handa kami at palaban kami ngayon,” he said. Letran just gave a fair warning.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
