This is the third and final installment of Bloody Elbow's ONE Fighting Championship 5: Pride of a Nation photo gallery. This portion features the 2 headlining bouts which saw Eduard Folayang dominate a tough and gritty fighter in Felipe Enomoto, and a fun ground battle between two high level BJJ guys in Bibiano Fernandes and Gustavo Falciroli.
Pictured above are headliners Fernandes and Falciroli who are the bantamweight champs of DREAM and CFC Australia respectively. As a fun tidbit about the bout, Gustavo complained that Bibiano was biting him at one point during their fight. A few minutes later, Bibiano complained about the same exact thing.
Check out the entire gallery after the jump.

I was on the worst position cageside and had these stairs/steps right in front of me, hence the weird "frame" blocking the edges. I had to make do with that giant obstruction for the entire night making it tough to take photos.
Yup. More of those steps ruining a perfectly good photo. After losing the earlier portions of the fight, Falciroli was able to rebound and land good strikes and standing elbows as the fight progressed.
the former 2-division DREAM champion took a well earned decision victory
