Aung La N Sang didn’t stay losing for long.
Entering Friday’s ONE Championship: Battleground event on just the second losing streak of his 16-year career, former two-division champion Aung La N Sang got back in the win column with an explosive first-round knockout of Leandro Ataides in Singapore.
Aung La N Sang unleashed a barrage of strikes to secure the stoppage at the 3:45 mark of round one, snapping a two-fight skid and bringing his pro record to 27-12 (1 NC). This is Aung La N Sang’s first win since October 2019. In his past two outings, he dropped both his 205-pound title and his 225-pound title to Reinier de Ridder.
Also featured Saturday, 17-year-old strawweight prospect Victoria Lee—the sister of ONE Champions Angela Lee and Christian Lee—improved to 2-0 as a pro with a first-round armbar of Wang Luping.
That’s two submissions in two pro bouts now for Lee, who recently spoke to MMA Fighting about juggling her fighting career and getting ready for her senior year of high school.
