Aung La Nsang signs ten fight ONE Championship deal
Aung La Nsang looks set to finish his career with ONE Championship. The two division champion is riding a six fight winning streak and has emerged as one of the promotion’s most marketable stars, particularly in his native Myanmar.
Any hopes which rival promotions might have harboured of snatching the Burmese star away would have been dashed this week with the news that La Nsang has signed a ten fight deal with ONE Championship.
The 34 year old announced the news on Instagram:

Excited to announce that I signed a 10 fight deal with @onechampionship. Thank you to @yodchatri @victorcui Matt Hume @slicricauty and the staff at One. I’m so honored and excited to grow with the company and I am thankful for the opportunity that you have given me. We are just scratching the surface.

La Nsang currently holds the promotion’s middleweight and light heavyweight titles. It is the latter he will be putting on the line at ONE: ‘Century’ on October 11th when the ‘Burmese Python’ goes up against reigning heavyweight champion Brandon Vera.
For La Nsang, who has spent much of his career competing at 170lbs, this will be a big challenge in more ways than one. Vera has a significant size advantage and has weighed as much as 240lbs heading into his heavyweight fights.
