De Ridder Dominates Nsang to Claim Double Champ Status

The final ONE on TNT card proved to be complete fireworks.

The opening bout of the main card saw Reug Reug upset by Kirill Grishenko, while Eddie Alvarez and Ok Rae Yoon battled it out to a decision that saw Ok emerge victorious.

The main event had the Light Heavyweight title (225 lb) on the line as Aung La Nsang sought to defend his belt against the man who stole his Middleweight crown, Reinier de Ridder.

Though the bout was much more competitive than their first meeting, de Ridder found similar success on the mat. He repeatedly grounded the Myanmar native and continuously fought to finish with a submission.

Despite a resurgent effort from Nsang in the final round, de Ridder came out with a clear unanimous decision victory.

This was an incredibly impressive performance for de Ridder on just five days’ notice and showed a more complete skillset for him, leaving np doubt that he is the superior fighter.

De Ridder is now a double champion, holding the Middleweight and Light Heavyweight titles.

ONE will return on May 15th with ONE: Dangal and features the Heavyweight belt on the line as Arjan Singh Bhullar takes on Brandon Vera.
