Aung La N Sang understands the risks. In fact, he has some firsthand knowledge upon which to draw.
Sang will put his One Championship light heavyweight crown on the line against the undefeated Reinier de Ridder in the One on TNT 4 headliner on Wednesday at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. The two men met once previously, as Ridder submitted “The Burmese Python” with a rear-naked choke to capture the promotion’s middleweight title at “Inside the Matrix” in October. Neither of them has fought since.
One on TNT 4—which airs on TNT (10 p.m. ET) and streams to the Watch TNT and B/R apps (10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT)—also features a lightweight co-main event pitting Eddie Alvarez against Rae Yoon Ok and a heavyweight showcase pairing Oumar Kane with Kirill Grishenko. The B/R app will provide coverage of the undercard at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT, the three-fight preliminary slate highlighted by a lightweight scrap between Shinya Aoki and Eduard Folayang.
