Never forget your roots. MMA, and martial arts in general, often harkens back to the trope that skill trumps size in a fight.
Out to test that very theory in 2017, ONE Championship booked their 185 pound champion Aung La Nsang in an openweight fight versus heavyweight striker Alain Ngalani.
Today at ONE: Hero’s Dream the openweight match-up ended in the first round with a quick decisive finish; in favor of the man giving up 60 pounds.
Watch La Nsang channel his inner Royce Gracie as Ngalani is left cast as role of Kimo Leopoldo circa UFC 3.
