Aung La Nsang is in town to corner Martin Nguyen. The two friends and team mates have been posing for photos in Singapore and the Burmese star had a message.

He posted a short and sweet Instagram update just now:

La Nsang’s message was simple, ‘shooter’s shoot, fighters fight’. But what did it actually mean? We think he was challenging Nguyen’s opponent Jae Woong Kim to make it a standup war.

Nguyen and Kim face off at ONE: ‘Revolution’ this Friday at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. The former featherweight champion normally likes to keep things standing although he has been known to shoot for the occasional takedown.

La Nsang was repeatedly taken down by Reinier de Ridder in his recent title fights, losing both belts to the lanky Dutch grappler. So perhaps the message wasn’t just intended for Nguyen’s upcoming opponent!
