Seven-fight World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) and Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veteran Kamal Shalorus, who was released from the organization last year after three-straight losses, has signed with ONE FC and will debut on May 31, 2013.
Set to take on the "Prince of Persia" in his ONE FC debut is Eduard Folayang, a 15-fight veteran of the sport who has fought three times before under the ONE FC banner.
Shalorus (7-3-2) looked like he had a promising career ahead of him when he opened his career on a nine-fight unbeaten streak, including wins over Will Kerr, Dave Jansen and Bart Palaszewski in the WEC.
The 40-year-old is one of the older fighters in the mixed martial arts (MMA) game, but that won't prevent him from trying to make a comeback over one year after his last fight.
Folayang (12-3) has spent his entire career competing in the Asian MMA circuit and has racked up some nice wins along the way. The 28-year-old is 2-1 during his stint with ONE FC with the lone defeat coming by split decision to Ole Laursen.
ONE FC 9 goes down May 31, 2013, from the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Philippines, just outside of Manila.
