Eduard Folayang secured a huge win over John Wayne Parr at ONE X and now, the Team Lakay star has set his eyes on the Yoshihiro “Sexyama” Akiyama.

The Filipino MMA star addressed Akiyama’s recent win over Shinya Aoki at ONE X and added that it will be an exciting fight.

“Maybe we can bring in Akiyama. He really performed well against Shinya. It’s [almost] identical to the way I beat Shinya. I think this is a good match to make. We were supposed to face each other before but it got canceled. If it happens, it will definitely be explosive. The crowd will definitely be on their feet,” Folayang said to ONE Championship.

He further went on to express his respect for Akiyama and added that it would be another legend vs. legend showdown.

“Akiyama is someone I really look up to considering his longevity. He’s been here a long time. Maybe we can put on a legend-versus-legend two. We’re done with legend-versus-legend one, so let’s do this,” Folayang added.

Folayang also expressed his interest in a fight with Sage Northcutt. Northcutt has not fought since his promotional debut in ONE Championship and is expected to make his return soon.

“I think it will be a good fight. It’s a win-win situation for us. He’s a striker, a karate champion. On the other hand I’m from wushu, and we’ll be fighting in a different world with Muay Thai rules. I think that is a good match for us. It will truly test our skills. I’m sure he loves a challenge, and I see this one as entertaining,” he said.
