Vitaly Bigdash and Aung La N Sang are ready to lock horns for a second time this Friday (June 30) when they meet in Myanmar at ONE Championship: Light of a Nation.
Sang and Bigdash met for the first time on January 14 in Indonesia and that night it was Bigdash who won the fight, successfully defending his ONE middleweight championship in the process. Now, five months on, Aung is out to even the score.
“I feel like I wanted my revenge,” Sang, 32, said. “I wanted to be able to fight him again. My next fight is going to be a lot different from my first fight.”
On Friday, Sang, 19-10 (1 NC), will look to replicate the success of Eduard ‘Landslide’ Folayang, who defended his ONE lightweight title in the Philippines, his home country, on April 21. For Sang, Myanmar’s MMA hero, the goal is the same. He too wants to win in his home country.
Thirty-two-year-old Bigdash, meanwhile, undefeated in nine fights, will look to prove his first win over Sang was no fluke. He will also look to improve on his decision win over Sang and perhaps look to stop the home hero within the scheduled distance this time around.
