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 Aokiís 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.

ďI would love to fight with Shinya Aoki and honestly I think itís a good match-up because heís a grappler, but Iím a wrestler, he cannot take me down and I can strike with him. I competed 16 minutes with Saulo Ribeiro and he couldnít submit me, so Aokiís not going to do anything to me. Thatís a very good match-up for me; Eduard Folayang is a harder fight for me than Aoki.Ē
