During an interview with the ONE Championship, Reinier De Ridder, Middleweight and Light Heavyweight ONE World champion has expressed his feeling that he was so pleased with his current championship belts but aiming to get one more belt.
“It would be cool if it’s Brandon Vera because he’s been the champ for a while, so it would be cool to take it from him. Two belts are cool, but three is better,” De Ridder said.
“He’s a great striker. His wrestling is all right, but it’s not on my level. It’ll be cool, man, to fight for history again, to fight for my legacy. I hope we can make that happen.”
Next, De Ridder has also expressed his overwhelmed feeling about Aung La N Sang as he won the Championship belt from Aung La with some difficulties.
“I have spoken to [Aung La N Sang] a few times now in passing. He’s a legend, he’s a great fighter, I respect him, but I never want to see him inside the cage again. I’m happy to put this to bed now. Two wins, it’s done”, the Dutch fighter added.
“It was one helluva battle. With respect to Aung, he’s a great fighter and a great champion. I’m just happy it’s over,” De Ridder said afterwards.
“Yes, I’m happy. It’s fine this way. I would have preferred to choke him out — I got close a couple of times — but it’s cool to show that I can go five rounds”.
“[I showed] I’ve got the cardio, the stamina, I can take guys down every round, show my heart and will on 6 days’ notice against a much heavier guy, a much improved Aung, so I’m content. He was very strong this time – a lot stronger than last time”, De Ridder commented. —GNLM
