Eduard Folayang has long been identified as the face of Philippine mixed martial arts (MMA), and the proud Igorot warrior is gearing up for the biggest shot of his mixed martial arts career in the upcoming ONE Championship event on Friday (November 11) against celebrated Japanese fighter Shinya Aoki. 

But before the fight of his life, Folayang sat down with the “Sports U” team to talk about his childhood, career choice, and what life has been as a MMA fighter airing this Thursday (November 10) on ABS-CBN. 

The eighth child out of nine children, Folayang had a modest childhood, with his mother being a fruit vendor in Baguio while his father farmed for a living. 

What many do not know is that the fighter was once a high school teacher in the Mountain Province before looking to mixed martial arts as an alternative career. 

Meanwhile, Ateneo Men’s Volleyball star Rex Intal also lets “Sports U” in on his workout as he shows the regular training regimen of the Ateneo Blue Eagles
