Part of what ONE FC has going for it is the Pride-ish rules that are in place. Soccer kicks and other bad assery are keys to the success. This morning Timofey Nastyukhin absolutely destroyed Eduard Folayang with a brutal flying knee followed up by kicks to the dome. It was pretty cool .
ONE FC 23 : Warrior’s Way went off this morning in Pasay City, Philippines and featured the promotional debut of Brandon Vera and Roger Gracie.
