The Burmese Python, Aung La N Sang, lost his ONE Championship Light Heavyweight belt after facing against his rival Reinier De Ridder of the Netherlands in the main event of ONE Championship TNT IV at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore yesterday.
The bout was a real thriller with no win or loss result until the last minute fight. Thus, three judges of the ONE Championship made their unanimous decisions to declare Reinier De Ridder as a winner.
Aung La N Sang came in the ring full of his confidence plus stamina. At the same time, his opponent De Ridder showed up with his fabulous grappling and Jujitsu skills throughout the fight.
Aung La N Sang got a chance to knock out the Dutchman just before the round one fight, but his punches and kicks over a long distance were not enough to finish the bout.
De Ridder relied on Jujitsu and grappling power over Aung La in the remaining rounds. However, Aung La took care of every step to show up; he can block every grab and choke of the Dutch fighter.
In round five, De Ridder tried to choke on Aung La but failed to finish the submission as Aung La again dominated the Dutchman in the final minutes of the sweaty fight.
The fight just finished with an unclear result, but judges made unanimous decisions to nominate Reinier De Ridder as the ONE Championship Light Heavyweight Champion. —GNLM
