Dear family and friends, I got tested for covid-19 on Monday and the result came back today and I am positive. So my family and I will be quarantining ourselves for the next 14 days. I had a slight fever, congestion, body ache and fatigue on the first two days. Besides that I am blessed that my whole family is doing well. We are really in this together and we will get over this.
La Nsang was born in Myanmar but is based permanently in the U.S. and currently trains at Sanford MMA in Fort Lauderdale. Among his training partners is Takashi Sato who fought at UFC on ESPN 12 last weekend.
The 35 year old holds a 26-10-0-1 record and has won his last seven fights. He was scheduled to defend his middleweight belt against Vitaly Bigdash before the coronavirus, or Covid-19, crisis began.
