There were a few talking points raised at the weekendâ€™s ONE FC: War of the Lions event.
Headline lightweight Zorobabel Moreira emerged as a really interesting talent while Melvin Manhoefâ€™s split shin turned stomachs around the world.
But the eventâ€™s highlight was probably the barnburner fight between Ole Laursen, a Dane who has lived in Thailand for much of his life, and the Filipino stalwart Edward Folayang.
They absolutely went to war, Laursenâ€™s forward-pressure Muay Thai mentality being matched by Folayangâ€™s typically Filipino heart and aggression.
Sometimes, really good fights slip through the cracks because thereâ€™s just so much MMA out there now. But this one is worth a watch; its 15 minutes of marvellous technical violence.Â Â
