Close to a year since the UFC released Kamal Shalorus, the lightweight has signed with ONE FC and meets Eduard Folayang on their May card.
Shalorus entered the UFC with four wins out of WEC. He didn’t do as well in the UFC, suffering losses to Jim Miller, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Rafael dos Anjos. Miller scored a third round TKO while the other two were via rear naked choke.
Folayang is 2-1 for ONE FC with each fight going to the judges. He holds wins against A Sol Kwon and Felipe Enomoto.
ONE FC 9 is May 31 from the SM Mall of Asia Arena in the Philippines. It airs across all of Asia and online for other parts of the world. The main event has bantamweight champion Honorario Benario defending opposite Bae Young Kwon.
