Former double champ Aung La Nsang (26-12, 1NC) battles Brazil’s Leandro Ataides (11-4) in an important middleweight bout at ONE Championship: Battleground on Friday.
Nsang held the middleweight and light heavyweight titles simultaneously for ONE Championship. Reinier De Ridder beat Nsang twice for both titles and beat Ataides.
The winner looks to get another opportunity at De Ridder.

Nsang resides with his family in South Florida. They moved there from Baltimore. The 36-year-old fighter is originally from Myanmar, where he is a hero who helps his country, the people and wildlife.
