The noted ONE Championship fighter, Aung La N Sang, put up a dominant display of his skills at ONE on Prime Video 6: Superbon vs. Allazov. ‘The Burmese Python’ finished off his opponent Gilberto Galvao in the first round itself that night. N Sang is also one of the most well-known faces of the entire promotion. The former two-weight division champ made his ONE Championship debut way back in 2014.

It was quite understandable why ONE Championship authorities scheduled a bout for him as well at their first-ever event on US soil. On 2 February 2023, the ONE Championship authorities revealed that N Sang will be locking horns with the Chinese, Fan Rong, at ONE Fight Night 10 on 5 May 2023. The duo will be fighting at Middleweight in their matchup scheduled to take place at the 1st Bank Center in Denver, Colorado.

‘The Burmese Python’ lost out both his titles to ‘The Dutch Knight’, Reinier De Ridder, in two consecutive bouts in 2020 and 2021. But, N Sang has worked hard since then to get himself back in the winning books. The former ONE Champ-champ is currently on a 2-fight winning streak and holds a 3-1 record in his last four ONE bouts.

Following his losses to De Ridder, N Sang didn’t take long to get back to winning form. He defeated the Brazilian, Leandro Ataides, in his next bout but once again tasted defeat in his following outing. ‘The Burmese Python’ went down via unanimous decision against his long-time rival Vitaly Bigdash, on 25 February 2022. But Nsang sprung back to form yet again and amassed two consecutive wins in his two following bouts against Yushin Okami and Gilberto Galvao.

On the other hand, the Chinese, Rong, would be making his way back into the circle after a prolonged over-a-year break. His final outing also saw him fetching a defeat against the noted Vitaly Bigdash on 3 December 2021. It’s quite apparent that both the fighters will be eyeing a win desperately.
