The ONE middleweight championship will be on the line on Oct. 26, when Aung La N Sang faces Mohammad Karaki in his home country of Myanmar, the promotion announced.
Sang (23-10, 1 no-contest) captured the middleweight belt in June 2017, successfully defending it against Ken Hasegawa a year later. In between those fights, “The Burmese Python” went 2-0 at light heavyweight, defeating Alexandre Machado in under a minute in February to become a two-division champion (watch here).
Karaki (9-0) was also a two-division titleholder under the Desert Force banner, capturing the middleweight and light heavyweight belts. “O Lutador” makes his first appearance inside the ONE cage after racking up a perfect 9-0 record that includes eight first-round finishes.
