ONE Fighting Championship™ presents Ana Julaton
The largest mixed martial arts event is set on May 2, 2014 as ONE Fighting Championship™ (ONE FC): RISE OF HEROES promises a stacked fight card featuring the explosive battle for the ONE FC Bantamweight World Championship title belt in the Main Event.
It will be an all-night slam-bang action as Ana Julaton will now make her mixed martial arts debut this Friday in a highly anticipated bout against Middle Eastern kickboxing champion, Aya Saeid Saber. The California-based Julaton, is the first Filipino American boxer to win the Women's WBO Super Bantamweight and IBA Super Bantamweight titles and ONE FC: RISE OF HEROES marks the first time she competes before a hometown crowd since she made the switch to MMA.
"Aya Saber is an experienced MMA warrior and champion in kickboxing. I know she will bring her very best on May 2nd. I'm training for my ONE FC homecoming fight in Manila harder than ever before and what gives me strength through my ups and downs are the hearts of my Kababayan all over”, according to Julaton.
On the other hand, the Egyptian kickboxing champion Saber is the first female MMA fighter from Egypt to fight in ONE FC. “I can't wait to get into the cage and beat Ana and make my fight team and family proud. Unlike Ana, I am not new to MMA,” she said.
