From Humble Beginnings to Pro Fighter, Kamal Shalorus Calls Out One FC Champ Shinya Aoki | MMAWeekly.com
Kamal Shalorus established himself as an immediate contender for Shinya Aoki’s ONE FC lightweight belt with a decision win over Eduard Folayang last month and the Iranian wasted no time in calling out the reigning 155-pound champion.
“I would love to fight with Shinya Aoki and honestly I think it’s a good match-up because he’s a grappler, but I’m a wrestler, he cannot take me down and I can strike with him. I competed 16 minutes with Saulo Ribeiro and he couldn’t submit me, so Aoki’s not going to do anything to me. That’s a very good match-up for me; Eduard Folayang is a harder fight for me than Aoki.”
