The Burmese Python Aung La N Sang yesterday accepted a rematch against his old rival Reinier De Ridder. According to the ONE Championship, his original competitor Vitaly Bigdash has withdrawn from the ONE Championship Light heavyweight showdown, which is scheduled to hold on 29 April in Singapore.
“Unfortunately, the Russian athlete Vitaly Bigdash tested positive for COVID-19 and has been forced to withdraw from the “ONE on TNT IV” main event tilt.
Taking his place will be the last man to beat the Myanmar sports icon – undefeated ONE Middleweight World Champion Reinier “The Dutch Knight” De Ridder.
The Burmese Python” looked sharp on the feet. However, the Dutch grappler quickly took him to the canvas and ultimately submitted him in the first round,” ONE Championship officials said.
Aung La also stated on his social media ahead of the fight.
“Hello all my beloved fans, I’m now in Singapore for my Light Heavyweight Championship title defence next week. I’ll try my best to make everyone proud. May you all be peaceful,” Aung La N Sang said.
In October 2020, De Ridder challenged Aung La N Sang for his middleweight belt, and Aung La lost his middleweight champion title.
This time, Aung La N Sang got his unexpected chance to prove that he is still the legend of the Light heavyweight category of ONE Championship. —GNLM
