Aung La Nsang faces Leandro Ataides at ONE: ‘Battleground’
ONE: ‘Battleground’ is set for the Singapore Indoor Stadium on July 30th. The event will feature a middleweight fight between Aung La Nsang and Leandro Ataides.
La Nsang (26-12-0-1) is on a losing streak for the first time in his ONE Championship career. He is coming off back to back losses to Reinier de Ridder with the Dutch grappler snatching both the middleweight and light heavyweight titles from the popular Burmese fighter.
Ataides (11-4) is also coming off a decision loss to de Ridder. The Brazilian has been on the ONE Championship roster since 2013 and challenged for the middleweight title himself seven years ago.
The card will also feature Victoria Lee (1-0). The younger sister of reigning ONE Championship title holders Angela Lee and Christian Lee will be looking for her second pro win when she faces promotional newcomer Wang Luping in an atomweight bout.
Also in atomweight action is Ritu Phogat (4-1). The Indian wrestler will be looking to rebound from her first ever defeat when she faces the experienced Lin Heqin (14-2-1) who returns after a two year absence.
The card will be headlined by a Muay Thai title fight with Sam-A Gaiyanghadao defending his strawweight title against Prajanchai PKSaenchaigym. Both men have won titles in multiple divisions at Lumpinee Stadium but the challenger is 11 years younger.
There will also be a big kickboxing contest in the stacked featherweight division. New arrival Tayfun Ozcan has been matched with former Glory lightweight champion Sittichai Sitsongpeenong.
