ONE FC: Ole Laursen Injured, A Sol Kwon Steps In to Headline Against Eduard Folayang

A Sol Kwon will be replacing Ole Laursen on his headlining ONE Fighting Championship bout against Eduard Folayang.

Ole Laursen suffered an injury during training putting a halt to one of the most anticipated fights in Asia. Stepping in on his ONE FC headlining slot will be DEEP, SRC, and Legend FC veteran, A Sol Kwon, who will be taking on Eduard Folayang in under three weeks notice. The promotion announced the news today:

Ole Laursen has seriously injured his knee during training and will be unable to compete on September 3. URCC Champion Eduard Folayang (9-1) will now face the very dangerous HEAT FC Welterweight Champion A Sol Kwon (19-6) from Korea.

The Korean striker is currently on a six fight winning streak, and is no stranger to fighting often and on short notice. He had a busy 2010, winning 6 out of his 8 total fights that year. This will be his fourth fight this year, with his last two bouts coming from the same month.

Kwon is talented and has a fan-friendly fighting style, making him an excellent pick up for the promotion. The bout against Folayang should still be guaranteed to be entertaining either way, but it's just a real bummer that Laursen had to drop off a fight that lots of people have been looking forward to.
