Aung La Nsang is the busiest fighter on the ONE Championship roster. The former middleweight and light heavyweight champion was in action last November, last weekend and will be fighting again soon by the sounds of it.
La Nsang announced on Instagram he has just signed another fight contract:

La Nsang is coming off a first round stoppage win over Gilberto Galvao at ONE Fight Night 6. That victory earned him a $50,000 USD bonus and means he is on back to back wins for the first time since 2019.
The catchweight contest with the Brazilian was put together at the last minute. La Nsang had originally been set to face Fan Rong in a middleweight fight and it will be interesting to find out whether that is the offer currently on his table.
We know La Nsang has a fight signed and sealed but we don’t know who he will be facing or when. There has been a lot of speculation that he would end up on the ONE Fight Night 10 card.
ONE Fight Night 10 is set for Colorado on May 10th and will be the promotion’s US debut. Although La Nsang was born in Myanmar he is based permanently in Florida.
La Nsang has been living in the US since he was a child and would love to fight there for ONE Championship. But having fought twice in the past three months he might be hoping for a faster turnaround.
The 37 year old was mobbed by Burmese fans at Impact Arena last Saturday. He got a bigger cheer than any of the Thai fighters and with such a passionate base of fans from Myanmar he is a big draw almost anywhere in South East Asia.
ONE Championship looks set to be holding regular fight cards in Bangkok and La Nsang has already established himself as a fan favourite there. So it is possible he will be back in action before May 10th.
But with two first round stoppage wins in the space of three months the Burmese Python is well and truly back. He has been one of the most successful fighters in ONE Championship history and clearly still has a lot to offer, and a lot of people wanting to see him win.
