Seven days before ONE: Fire and Fury, Eduard Folayang (22-8) is booked to face a new opponent at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Stepping up for Ahmed Mujtaba — who fell to injury in training — is Dutch muay thai artist Pieter Buist (16-4).

Buist has won his last two fights in ONE Championship, beating Kota Shimoishi and Tony Caruso.

Definitely, the two-time ONE Lightweight World Champion will have his hands full this week as he trains for a new opponent.

This is the third time Mujtaba has pulled out of a bout, having been inactive for the last two years.

Headlining Fire and Fury is a ONE Strawweight World Championship bout pitting Folayang’s Team Lakay teammate Joshua Pacio against Alex Silva.
