Former ONE Championship double champion Aung La N Sang had called out Japanese Icon Yushin Okami last day and now, Okami has responded to the challenge from the Burmese Python.
Okami replied to the challenge from Aung La on Twitter last day and said that the fight will decide the top Asian MMA fighter in Middleweight.
“Let's fight! Let's decide who is Asia's No.1 in the middleweight division!,” Okami noted on Twitter.
Earlier, Aung La had proposed a fight between the two on June 3, 2022. The Myanmar superstar is coming off a loss against Vitaly Bigdash and had knocked out Leandro Ataides prior to this.
Okami, on the other hand, has not fought since 2019. He had secured a win over Agilan Thani at ONE: Century in 2019 and prior to that, he suffered losses against ONE Welterweight champion Kiamrian Abbasov and James Nakashima.
The Japanese MMA star holds a professional MMA record of 36-14 to his name while Aung La is currently 27-13 in his professional MMA career.
Interestingly, ONE Championship does have an event listed for 3 June 2022 on their official website though no fights have been confirmed for the event yet. ONE Championship will be having two events prior to this date with the first event happening on 22 April 2022 and the second event happening on 20 May 2022.
