Filipino MMA veteran Eduard Folayang will take a shot at ending Timofey Nastyukhin's winning run in One FC in front of his home country crowd.

Folayang will face Nastyukhin in One FC's year-end event "Warrior's Way" on December 5 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

The Team Lakay star, who won his last two fights including an impressive outing against former One FC champion Kotetsu Boku, will try to stop the rising Russian MMA sensation, who was victorious in his last seven fights, all via first-round stoppages.

Also, female boxing champs Ana Julaton and Jujeath Nagaowa will return to the cage to face separate opponents.

Julaton will face Egyptian fighter Walaa Abbas, while Nagaowa will take on Cambodian fighter Tharoth Sam.

In the last of the four fights revealed recently by the promotion for the event that will highlight Brandon Vera's One FC debut and Bibiano Fernandes' title defense, Asian Games gold medalist Rene Catalan will test the mettle of Thai fighter Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke.

"One FC will return to Manila with one of our most stacked cards to date and the night will feature four martial arts champions from the Philippines.... This be a night of non-stop adrenaline-pumping action that you do not want to miss!" said Victor Cui, the president of One FC.
