ONE Championship in partnership with Turner Broadcasting will air 4 “ONE on TNT” blockbuster events live on the United States prime-time TV. On April 21 at the third event “ONE on TNT III”, we will see the much-anticipated return of Asia’s great. The card will be headlined by Aung La NSang vs Vitaly Bigdash, as the two meet again for a trilogy.
Former ONE Middleweight Champion Vitaly Bigdash won the belt by edging Former Undisputed Middleweight Champion Aung La NSang, who later on then took the belt from Bigdash on their rematch. The trilogy has a different tone this time around as a championship title is not on the line. There is, however, a big stake on the line. The winner of this match will emerge as the #1 ONE Middleweight contender and will be granted a shot at current champion Reinier De Ridder.
Aung La NSang vs Vitaly Bigdash 3
Aung La NSang is coming off a huge upset loss as he succumbed to a first-round rear-naked submission to Reinier De Ridder at ONE: Inside the Matrix. On the other hand, Vitaly Bigdash has not fought since December of 2018. They are already 35 and 36 years old respectively. For a division that is stacking and heating up with some new talents, this fight is a must-win for both men.
The winner of Aung La NSang vs Vitaly Bigdash will most likely have their final run for ONE Middleweight Gold. Both of the previous fights produced intense action that kept us at the edge of our seats. Tremendous and heavy exchanges were thrown between the two warriors. Expect nothing less in the trilogy, these former champions will go all out!
