BloodyElbow.com was on hand at the Veranda Restaurant Parkmall in Mandaue City, for the press conference and weigh-ins of the URCC's 7th trip to Cebu.
Headlining the stacked provincial card is the return of the biggest MMA star from the Philippines in Eduard Folayang. The #6 ranked lightweight in the 2011 World MMA Scouting Report will be fighting in the country for the first time since March of 2010, and will be taking on Wadson Teixeira, a Brazilian Muay Thai champion with a BJJ Brownbelt.
The Wushu expert in Folayang tipped the scales right on the 160 lb. limit of their super-fight. Teixeira on the other hand, was 2 lbs over the limit, and after a brief discussion, Eduard and his Team Lakay camp just agreed to let the fight go on.
