SAN BRUNO, California -- Ana “The Hurricane” Julaton’s mixed martial arts debut is on May 2 at “One FC: Rise Of Heroes.” It will be broadcast live from Manila.

 

The pugilist will take on Aya Saeid Saber of Egypt in a showdown between two top fighters.

The upcoming bout with Saber is highly anticipated by Julaton’s countrymen and women, as this will be her first fight in the Philippines.

When asked about the upcoming bout Julaton replied, “Aya Saber is an experienced MMA warrior and champion in kickboxing, and what gives me strength through my ups and downs are the hearts of my kababayan all over.”

As reported by INQUIRER.net, “The Hurricane” began her martial arts training at a young age, studying both Bok Fu and Taekwondo.

She was eventually introduced to boxing by her current trainer and manager Angelo Reyes. The initial encounter led her to testing the water in boxing, and she hasn’t looked back since.

Julaton in 2007 took her boxing career to the pro level. Less than two years later, on Sept. 12,2009, she captured the WBO super bantamweight title by defeating Kelsey “The Road Warrior” Jeffries.

With a boxing career spanning 18 bouts, Julaton has improved with each fight. She earned the nickname “The Hurricane” because of her relentless offense.

Julaton continually gains new fans, thanks to her exciting fighting style. She enters her MMA debut with a boxing record of 13 – 4 -1.

Looking at the Tale of the Tape infographic by MMASomnia.com, it is clear the upcoming fight is well matched. Similar to Julaton, Saber’s career began before her entry into the MMA world.

Saied is an Egyptian kickboxing champion who dominated the Middle East Circuit with her explosive kicks. After winning the championship belt she turned her eyes to MMA with a focus on ruling over her division.

Saber has stated, “I am excited and honored to be the first female mixed martial artist from Egypt to compete in ONE FC. I can’t wait to get into the cage and beat Ana and make my fight team and family proud. Unlike Ana, I am not new to MMA. Be careful Ana, you are entering my world. I’m coming!”

The Egyptian enters the upcoming bout with a MMA record of 2 – 3 – 0.
