Asian MMA - URCC Cebu 7: Folayang Vs. Teixeira Exclusive Photo Gallery

Urcc_cebu_medium

This is long overdue. URCC Cebu 7 happened almost two weeks ago, and I finally had the time to post the photos I took from the event. The show was headlined by a super-fight between the hometown hero and the #6 lightweight in the World MMA Scouting Report in Eduard Folayang, and the Brazilian Muay Thai Champ, and Nova Uniao BJJ Brownbelt in Wadson Teixeira.

It was a fight that lasted only 56 seconds, which saw Folayang survive an early knockdown to eventually finish the fight with vicious ground and pound. You can read the recap of the event here.

Pictured above is ONE FC 2 headliner Ole Laursen, who was visually disappointed that his teammate was so close to pulling off that upset. On the background is Teixeira, posing for photos after winning over and gaining the respect of the Filipino crowd for his performance.

One of three bouts that night that ended in less than a minute:

This was for the Visayan Pinweight Title. After a back and forth brawl on the opening minutes, Victor Torre chained a deep triangle and switched to an armbar to finish the fight:

Main Event, the superfight between Eduard Folayang and Wadson Teixeira. It only lasted for 56 seconds but it was a very entertaining bout. They stood for a bit, Folayang landed a couple of shots until the Muay Thai champ in Teixeira landed a hook that drops Folayang.

Folayang excapes, and lands very heavy ground and pound. Teixeira motions to tap, but he still goes out and was down for several moments:
